I’ve often heard good comments about Firewood’s pizza and fish tacos, so I decided to try it with a foodie friend visiting from Bay Area. Embarrassingly awful! Margherita pizza with microscopic amount of cheese, no tomato, a wisp of tomato sauce and barely apparent basil....More

Great pizza and a few other options including burgers if you are not in the mood for pizza. Guinness on tap as a bonus!

I've been here a few years back and had an excellent pizza. This time we thought we'd try the burgers. Some people that were staying at the same place we were in Angels Camp said that they were really good so we thought we'd give...More
