Local customer. Sassafras does great pizza. They don't listen to their customers. I'm fed up. I always ask for anchovies, and always pay for them too. Always double check when I pick up the pizza, 'I can't see the anchovies, are they on here?' And...More

Dinner with a group to celebrate a birthday. The service was excellent. Love that you can bring your own wine in. Pizzas were very tasty except the crust did not taste homemade. Would recommend this place for a casual dinner.
