It's worth going a little out of your way to the South End to have this pizza and interact with the family that owns the restaurant. What a great change from the big chain pizza places. I've never had pizza this good! The supreme is especially good.

This place has been around since the early 1980s. I have travelled extensively working in the hotel industry. In all these years, I have never found a place that has the incredible cracker crust this place has. No matter the amount of toppings, this place blows them all out of the water. Actually thought that Dominoes was getting close. But thy still have a way to go. Their phone number is (816)238-3955. Hope we can guide some folks in to check it out. Thanks
