We had the taco pizza with the specialty crust and it was so good! A little bit on the cheesy side, but one of the best taco pizzas I've had. It was super crowded when we were there, but we were able to eat at the bar and service was great.

Fantastic atmosphere based on a London pub. We ordered half order of the onion rings on review suggestion. Fabulous homemade rings! Thin cut lightly breaded. See pic. Ordered pizza with Canadian bacon, homemade sausage, and kraut. You won't find better than the thin crust baked on the stone brick oven. Great stringy cheese on the pizza, don't need extra cheese....

Small- kind of crowded & cramped. Food was fantastic and great!! Service good. Would avoid it on a football Saturday; otherwise definitely worth the wait!!

I love their thin and crispy type crust while my wife loves the Tomato Pie crust. Very cheesy with an excellent tomato paste. Highly recommend these pizzas.

Small pub with tasty variety of pizzas as well as other foods. My favorite is the Union Jack with flying tomato. So much cheese and deliciousness! Plus it heats well for leftovers. Yum!

We stopped in for some pizza on a football Saturday and our timing (~3 hours after the game) was perfect! The hostess said she could seat us right away on the outside patio. The owner was lighting the heaters and our kids were so happy we could order right away (we had prepared them that it could be a long... More

Their thin pizza has a good crispy crust. We ordered an onion pizza - it could have had more onions and sauce. - and a mushroom pizza - it could have had more mushrooms

Decided to go the Wig for date night. Wigatoni and Spinach lasagna reigned supreme along with good service. I had the spicy sausage Wigatoni and it was great--just enough zip to make itself known. My wife had the spinach lasagna and it was a nice large portion that she finished there because it was so good. An aside which I... More

Great Chicago style pizza, but loads of garlic make this product pop. This visit, our service was great in spite of the place being packed.

This place has easily the best pizza in Iowa. Their flying tomato crust is simply amazing. There is an extensive menu in addition to the pizza. There is a bar as well. Get there early on the weekend or be prepared to wait.
