Its worth a 45 minute drive to have a truly unique pizza experience. I love love the decor the plastic utensils and cooking sheets instead of plates. Thin crust pizza is not meant to be eaten on a plate or w utensils....YOU PICK IT UP....More

The thin crust pizza is locally acclaimed a "awesome" but realistically it's just better than out of a box. The real attraction is the tough old broad likely to serve you in the well worn booths on paper plates. The banter can get raucous. Despite...More

Place has a phenomenal reputation, but the pies are, well, less than extraordinary ... in my opinion. Nice place to sit and the prices are OK. And any place with a kielbasa pizza can't be bad. Different? Yes. But, the pizza just isn't that special...More

Classic local townie bar and pizza restaurant, with very fine quality pizza and noisy, charming atmosphere. A throwback to pre-gentrification of the area, and a reliable and friendly neighborhood option for honest down-home food.

Pizza is the best. Get the meat on top for best taste. Wish they had a few more draft beer choices. Off the beaten track but worth the trouble. Not a dress up place.

Great pizza, low prices, family resturant (lots of kids early, opens ~ 4:30). Great take-out pizza. I've been going there since 1955 (opps - am I that old?)

A hidden gem in Ipswich serving only pizza. The place is unchanged in the 50 years I have been going there. It is a thin crust pizza and comes in only one size. Delicious! Drinks are inexpensive and the utensils are plastic and paper plates...More
