We had heard about this place and it's history. We were so pleased with the thin crust pizzas we ordered. Friendly and attentive service. Place was quite busy on a Thursday afternoon, which says something for a restaurant.

Pizza was fantastic! Taco and "Walk in the Garden" were delicious. Atmosphere and service could use some work.

The pizza was good but not spectacular. The waiters seemed very busy but the pizza was done quickly. We had garlic bread which was nice. It is a good place to take a group or large family and eat very economically.

The waitress was nice and it didn't take long to get our pizza. We had the cheese sticks that were as expected and the taco supreme pizza. It was an average tasting pizza with thin crust.

There is a large room in the basement that would be great for a wedding party. Mabe's takes reservations for this room.
