Good short walk from Westin. Grab a slice and a cub salad. Sorted with a movie and peace and quiet in hotel room. Good basic fresh Cobb salad pre-packed in chill cabinet, Several pizzas ready by the slice. Super fast service

We enjoyed our pizza. The granddaughters especially liked the knots with icing to dip. I enjoyed looking over the many gas/service station items from the past. They brought back some good memories.

My family and I stopped here late night one evening while in Charlotte. We liked the layout and everyone was very professional & nice. We ordered a pepperoni pizza and mild wings which came up quick. Our food was very good and as ordered no complaints at all and we would recommed this place.

We were looking for a late night pizza, delivered to our hotel, from a local shop. Hampton Inn recommended, the selections were awesome and the pizza even better! Delivered to the room, timely, hot and with paper plates and napkins. Could only be better if they brought beer (but know they can't).

Went there for a fast dinner, not very attentive to customers placing orders. We ordered by the slice pizza meal, and even though you were to be able to choose what kind of pizza you wanted, ordered mine and they didn't have what I wanted and they didn't offer to make a pie up. Sauce just so so, not very... More

Group of 7 after a soccer game walked by and it smelled so good we stopped in. The pizza was good and service was nice. The soft drink machine was flat but the sweet tea was good. Overall a good experience.

We were at the Convention center across the street and decided to walk over for a quick lunch. The staff is very, very nice! Even to the guy who takes the trays when you're done smiled and thanked me. I think the food is good but the service is what I was most impressed with. I really liked the pizza...the... More

I ate here this weekend during a conference in Charlotte. While I waited in line to order, I perused the menu deciding what to order. I was very disappointed when I got to the counter to place my order only to find out that they were out of what I wanted and had to settle for something else. They were... More

I actually visit the one off Rea Road. I wish they had delivery. Literally my only complaint about this place. Otherwise, the service is great, the staff is friendly and I love their pizza. My favorite is the Sausage and broccoli rabe. (See photo). It is delicious and the prices are fantastic.

Thank wanderlustbebe
