My favorite part of their pizzas is the amount of cheese they use! Cheese makes everything better, and that includes pizza. They can be a bit busy at times, but they do have a carry out option. They are pricier than most pizza joints in...More

Shared a large specialty pizza for 5 adults and had plenty to go around. The crust was nice and crispy with loads of toppings. Fighting over the last piece! Will definitely come back again! A must stop when in Waco.

The Hewitt location has better service than the Waco location on valley mills but pizza is great at either. Beer is very cold. Wings only available at the Hewitt Texas location
