First visit here. We were met by the ladies at the front counter who put us on waiting list and took pizza order. Shortly after sitting down, the pizzas were delivered. Awesome experience and even better pizza!

Ask for the Crust-less pizza.. Crust is made out of sausage... NO CARBS IN CRUST.. Nice to have real tomatoes on pizza instead of sauce. Around for years and willbe around for many more...

The family style salad was shockingly good. Highly recommended. They have a variety of wonderful pizza recipes. The dough is sour and has a nice crispiness.

We were pretty late, close to 9, it was still full of people. We had pre-ordered a pizza to eat there. The pizza is great! Sauce is not too sweet, some garlic taste, the crust is perfect. Try it!
