They have good pizza for the price. Not out of line with Pizza Hut on value or price. Has a nice down home feel when you walk in the door. The employees were friendly.

No special occasion is every complete for us without some Big Cheese Pizza to go with it. Their staff is kind and their food is great. I also call for delivery at work when I'm too busy to get away.

This has always been my favorite Pizza place. From the crust to the sauce (which isn't too sweet like Pizza Hut) to the melty cheeses--this pizza takes the cake for me. It's pricey, but completely delicious and worth it. Won many awards. This is what...More
