Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 225reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by First of all let me warn you; this is a take-out restaurant. Yes, there is a sitting area, but you order your food at a counter, you pour your own drink, and you go up to get your food and bring it to your table. There are no servers, and no service beyond the counter. You will be hard-pressed to find a clean table when it is busy, so you might have to clean your own.We came in expecting more of a sit-down, but the prices seemed really good. So we figured why not?The service that we received was atrocious, and the boys that served us should be reprimanded for their attitudes. From the start, we felt like we were not good enough to get their attention, and when we finally did, it was with sullen looks and arguing about things that should be included with the "complete" specials. Website menu says it comes with a soda, but the kid at the counter said the website needs to be updated. I don't care, just honor it. They did, with a slamming down of the soda cups. When our order was finally made, they told us it would be 25 minutes, which we expected. We were not expecting the 45 minutes that it actually took ... with no apologies given.The prices are really good, and the food was very tasty, with reasonable portions, but seriously? Retrain the boys with attitude to be better servers, and get some decent service in here. Get someone who knows how to smile, clean tables, and make you feel welcome. Nov 17, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by In addition to a great pizza, salad and cheesy bread, we had them wrap up a large lasagna to go and they offered it cold if we were going to stick it in the fridge - YES, perfect !! Oct 18, 2015
