Excellent little restaurant. Food very good. However do not bother with the jalapeño popper app those were disappointing. That's why only a 4... everything else was really good.

The chocolate chip cookies and the cannoli are the consensus favorites. The salad had a generous amount of toppings and came with both a container of ranch and Grampa Tony's signature red Italian dressing. Friendly delivery to our plant.

I grew up in Essexville and often went to Grandpa Tony's, loving the pizza. Over the years, when I come back home, I ALWAYS try to eat there. I am never disappointed, no matter what I eat!
