The portions are huge and the salad came out nice and cold. It was one of the best salads I have ever had. The service was very friendly.

This use to be a pretty good place to go for what is basically tuned up fast food. NO LONGER ! I was charged $12 for a "nothing special" margarita. The $11 appetizer "3 tortilla spring rolls" consisted of 9 pieces of two inch made from frozen tiny fried dough rolls, like what you would buy in your grocery store... More

Wow! I ordered the Spicy Chipotle Chicken Pizza for a late lunch with my family - never again! This pizza was over-cooked and SO over-spiced that none of the ingredients or flavors of the pizza could be tasted. The Chipotle adobo sauce overwhelmed everything - and gave me heartburn for most of the night after our late lunch. The shaved... More

I came here with quite a large group (more than 15). We had excellent service that was fast and helpful. The wait staff went out of their way to be helpful. Food choices were plentiful, different and tasted great. I've been here before with a large group and the service continues to exceed expectations. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Crazy to go out on a holiday weekend with a large party. We had 9 the day after Christmas. We waited for a table, they were short staffed. It was my Nephews 11th birthday and this was his pick so we grinned and bared it. The negatives were the wait, the spotty service re drink refills, they forgot someone's pizza... More

Had lunch with a colleague and was not disappointed. The Lunch Combo (personal 7" pizza with choice of soup or salad) was a very good bargain for $10.95. My Pepperoni, Mushroom and Sausage Pizza with a Caesar Salad hit the spot. The service was very good for a very busy lunch hour. Our server, Jonee was very friendly and efficient,... More

Most recent visit waiter was not only efficient, but especially pleasant. He went above and beyond with any small request and really wanted to ensure everything was perfect. Food always good and always love the Waldorf chicken salad and my son has shrimp linguine he really liked. I've never had a bad experience here, it's a very well managed location.

It's CPK, so you know up front what the menu consists of. Of the few times I have been, restaurant has been busy. Wait time about 15min. Service was average, servers seem a bit rushed and had to remind about the lemon for water. The environment is bustling and moderately loud. CPK is fine for a quick dinner or lunch... More

You want a pizza. Just stop in here and take your choice. There's a large dining area and the food is good and the prices are reasonable. Plenty of free parking and when done go see a near by movie or walk to the many stores.

Like most of the other CPK locations we've been to, the food and service are great, and the atmosphere is cheerful but not overly loud. The server was friendly and helpful, and even solicited our opinion about one of the newer dishes we ordered. Nice to know CPK not only wants to have good food on the menu, but also... More
