This new restaurant will challenge Orsi's for the #1 in the city of Omaha. There is nothing fancy about this pizza joint located in a strip mall near 72nd and Pacific. There is a drive through and seating inside. You order at the counter and it is delivered to your table. the selection includes pizza, salad and fabulous fries. Pizza by the slice is $6, a whole pizza is $21. One piece of pizza is more than enough for one person, a whole pizza will serve 4 people. Take out is available and fountain drinks inside the facility.

The pizza is thin crust with a big doughy edge, which I usually frown at, but not this time. A sweet mustard sauce is included with the pizza, which is not so great with the pizza, but wonderful dipping for the edgy pizza dough. There are some unusual combinations, BBQ chicken, buffalo chicken, blue cheese, make your own. The fries are to die for, also many different combinations; garlic/parmesan , blue cheese with brisket, puttain, these were even better than the pizza!

They are open until 3:00 AM on the weekends (when do they sleep?) but only drive through past 10:00 PM on Friday and Saturday. They were just named to the top 50 best pizza's by the Food Network, so they are busy, but the service was quick and the food was hot. We will be back!

Great specialty pizzas. Order pizza by the slice (even the speciality pieces) and order is ready in about 5 minutes. Whole pizza takes about 20 minutes. Awesome variety of fries with toppings. Dining area is so-so and with sparse furnishings and concrete floor can get loud at times. The pizza by the slice is a good as it allows every one to get what they want without breaking the bank.

Very good pizza -- but be prepared for a 1/4 of a pizza. The fries are also extraordinary -- the blue cheese and meat are very good. They have newly added dough balls which are essentially dough rolled into balls. Interesting, but could be better if they have something inside. Definitely recommend a stop.

Came for lunch and had the Sparky pizza and the outlaw fries. The Sparky pizza was pepperoni with cream cheese, sausage and a special sauce while the outlaw was fries topped with pulled pork and cole slaw. Both very unusual combinations -- but they both worked. The size of the slices is amazing -- roughly 1/4 of a whole pizza and the prices were very reasonable -- less than $6 for the pizza and roughly $5 for the fries. The other unusual thing about the pizza is that it has a very thin crust -- not one of the big doughy ones. I enjoyed it immensely and recommend it to anyone looking to satisfy their pizza taste.

Went with my wife for lunch. My wife ordered a slice of traditional crust and red sauce with hamburger, bacon, pineapple and black olives. She said it was flavorless. We both noticed that the pineapple was a bleached white color and almost tasteless. The counter person said that it was canned product. I ordered a slice of the buffalo chicken and a slice of BBQ chicken. I was happy with both of mine. We shared an order of poutine fries. It was the first time either of us had ever had them. They were very good. The dark gravy was tasty and thick so it stuck to the fries. The cheese curds were a nice addition to the flavor, I only wish there were more of them in the order. They were worth the visit all by themselves. All in all, I will be going back to try more of the menu but my wife said she would not be joining me. It is a little pricy for fast pizza, we paid $26 for 3 pieces of pizza and an order of poutine fries. And that was with drinking water.
