We stopped as suggested by Trip Advisor. Definitely a win! Fun atmosphere with great pizza. Our server, Elizabeth, was excellent and knowledgeable! She made it extra fun! We ordered the Louisville pizza...excellent. Great choices of wines and beers. It's with a trip off the interstate!

As a native New Yorker, I'm a bit of a pizza snob. I can't believe I'm saying this but it is better then the pizza I used to think was the best. If you haven't been to Coals.... GO!
