This place is really cool, a small little restaurant that will give you a slice bigger than your face and a drink for under $7 at lunchtime. If I am ever back in the area, this is a place I will visit again :)

If you're looking for a really really good pizza with great draft beer you will find it here. Generous ingredients top a hand tossed dough. Made right there before your eyes. Friendly staff and honest as well. (My husband ordered a white chocolate draft and was given the wrong one, unbeknownst to him. Several minutes later the bar tender appeared... More

Traveling on business I asked my nephew (U of A Grad) for a recommendation. He said he'd never been here, but heard it was great. So I invited him for pizza and he joined me. There were 4 of us and a large pizza was just right. The crust is really good, cheesy and flavorful. We pretty much stuck to... More

This is one of those great little places that quickly becomes a lunch-time go-to if you are a local. These slices are SO huge I have mine cut in half. With two extra toppings and a drink my cost is six bucks. Good crust, lots of topping choices, great staff...c'mon, what more can you ask for?

I have been getting pizza here for two years and I have to drive from Northwest Tucson. The staff is always cordial and they get my special directions right every time. I love their crust which is very tasty and chewy and they are generous with the toppings. Unlike many pizzerias, my order is ready when they say it will... More

Everybody raves about the size (huuuuuge) and the price ( $5 with free refill soda ) but the pizza is really really good. Home made to order. Staff is very friendly, I was by myself, sat in the window at read the paper. I will go back. Tomorrow.

they sell pizza by the slice and one slice is basically the size of two giant pieces. Pretty good pizza, with a nice tang to the sauce. Cool, hardworking staff.

Tired after working hard, this place will supply you with good spicy pizza. The slices are HUGE and very tasty. Staff is grudgingly nice. Recently remodeled, the space has increased and they now have flat screen TVs, and real cooling. Best place to watch the cars go by on Grant. Easy parking around the corner.

Stopped in here for a quick slice with my lady. I had heard great things, but never ventured in to try it out. The slice was piping hot and full of toppings. The staff was oh so friendly, which was nice. Not my first choice for pizza though.
