I usually carry out my order. There is space to eat in the restaurant but I do not find it inviting.

Wednesdays kids eat free. But any day my kids feel welcome and love to color and have their artwork posted on the walls.The food is great and a great value. I think the pizza is the best anywhere. The owner is always checking on how we are doing and makes us feel like he really cares.

Love the pizza here. Had thin crust and it was done perfectly. We like everything on our pizza, but kids had just cheese and they liked it also.

Two locations offer reliable food and fast service. The sub bread is sweet like Avanti's, but more dense and chewier. I like it a lot better than the Avanti's bread, which I find to be rather airy. The spaghetti sauce is also thick and tasty!
