As an east coast guy, I think I know pizza. This was good pizza. Mushroom and pepperoni is the classic in my book and they did that well. My wife had a white pizza (no sauce, just cheese) with potatoes. Delicious. Enough said.

Good, simple pizza. I like the thin crust. This place is favorited by many young drunks.
