When out of town this is a staple of my family. You know what you will get and you get it. Staff almost always is a great representative of the company. Meals are excellent and portions are enough. Usually not enough room for desert.

The absolute best pizza in Berks County! The sandwiches are also good but could be a little bigger. The stromboli and Italian dishes are worth a try but its hard to get past their pizza on the menu.
