I stumbled upon this place while driving around for work. It has some of the best thin crust pizza I have ever had! It is my go to place for lunch whenever I am in the area.

I ordered a thin crust cheese and mushroom pizza one chilly weeknight for delivery (4 pm - 9 pm CT)to my local hotel room. The pizza was excellent - lots of quality cheese topping and prepared exactly as I asked when ordering. Also, it was delivered hot (on a cold evening) probably by the older owner himself!

I didn't think the pizza was very good. My wife went there a couple of times and our opinion was not favorable.

Don't be fooled by the small size and unassuming appearance of this place. This is the best pizza you ever had, AND you purchase it by the slice, so everyone gets what they want. Also, the cheesy garlic beef sandwiches and cannolis are magnificent. And you will love the bargain prices.

This is a family owned local pizzeria, that has a great menu and their pizza by the slice is the best ever! I love that they are in the neighborhood! They are reasonably priced and care about their customers! My favorite pizza EVER!

Had to have deep dish pizza and it was really good. I would recommend that you don't get a lot of toppings because it gets soggy. The sausage and cheese pizza was to rave about, it sausage is one big piece that covers the whole pizza never seen it before but it was great. I would make it a stop... More

Pizza by the slice is very greasy and to be honest disguisting, it was just taken out of the oven when we walked in. if you get the whole pizza delivered it's completely different, why? I don't understand
