We love this place, great food, service and always fresh. We shared a pizza the other day. Thin crust and crispy in the middle. Cooked perfectly. Great prices and always good service.

I am sorry but I would not recommend this place. No flavor, over salted and not hot. Slow services, but friendly.

We love this restaurant but will be traveling through the area in an RV towing a Jeep -- can't remember if there's any parking that would accommodate our rig if we want to stop through tomorrow. We need wide turns and a length of about 40' to fit. Is the street too narrow? Is there parking? Thanks!
