I found this place to be extremely prompt with excellent service and great food. My family has ordered several pizzas from them at different times of the day and days of the week - everything came hot and fast. Every time I've ordered they are busy which is a good sign! I'm usually very difficult to please and have high standards on service and food quality (just see some of my Yelp posts). These guys make good pizza which is exactly we keep ordering.

Simple but good comfort food with the best breadsticks around (with their famous spicy spread). Great place to take the kids for a quick meal and you can't beat the prices.

Very good food and service but really just a great place to meet people for a bite. Inside and outside seating with plenty of room to hang out and chat for a while. Prices are reasonable as well.
