Surprised by negative reviews. We've been there twice now and have been really happy with our food and the service. Vegetarian options at a sports bar menu Fantastic! Yes, busy but attentive to us! Try it out for yourself sometime.

We stopped in here one Sunday afternoon as we noticed the parkinglot was always full when we passed by. This is a VERY casual atmosphere kind of place (which isn't a bad thing at all). We ordered a gyro & a chicken sandwich. Pretty standard...More

I've been to this place a number of times and it always great. Oven fire pizza is awesome, prices very fair, tons of beers on tap, stop if you can. Close enough to airport to taxi to I you have a couple hours.
