This is the best Pizza I found in the Mid west. When we travel to the cities this is a must stop. The pizza is delicious. You can purchase other items and dried pastas. Parking can be a challenge but, well worth a short walk....More

You can't go wrong with Broders, everything on the menu is fantastic, very authentic. Small restaurant and they have trouble seating groups of 8 or more. Try this place and you will walk away with a smile.

I ventured over here after trying to grab lunch at Broders and they were closed. What I found was a cafeteria style version of the classic Broders, perhaps a bit smaller portions, and an amazing store. I enjoyed the Rigatoni with mild Sausage & Peppers($8.50)...More
