Went there after volleyball tournament. It was packed. Told everyone they were out of sub bread. :-( We had pizza, garlic knots, chicken strips, and a calazone. Pizza crust very thin. Chicken strips were ok. Calazone was really good. It came wrong and guy said" I'll fire whoever did it, don't care if they have a family or not!" LOL... More

I was excited to find gf pizza and the flavor was great, but the crust was soggy and required you to eat with a fork.

My daughter and I were craving pizza once we checked into our room near the restaurant. This one did not disappoint. There was a combo special with a slice of pizza, 4 wings, and a drink for under $10. The pizza was huge and tasty. The wings were meaty and tasty. The restaurant was clean. Will definitely go again.

The service was absolutely horrible. The place was dirty and staff was so unprofessional. Some staff member was walking around talking on the phone trying to serve guest. Ordered the garlic knots just to find out after my food came out that they didnt have any. One chicken wing had a feather still on it and thats just unacceptable.

I ordered takeout here for lunch while staying across the street at the Westin. It was raining and this was right across the street, so I figured I would give them a try. Service: Amazing! The woman at the counter was so sweet and treated me well. She told me how long I would have to wait and then brought... More

Ordered two strombolis, and a pizza, late at night. Slightly overpriced, for the portions received. Incomplete order arrived but delivery person apologized, and QUICKLY went and brought back rest of order. The food didn't look appetizing, to be truthful, but it TASTED great! We wouldn't recommend it for delivery, but for dine-in, it is probably very cool.

Stopped in for a quick slice for a snack to tide us over for dinner. The decor went well for the theme, old time filling station memorabilia. We arrived around 3pm so it wasn't very busy. The restrooms were well stocked and pretty clean, smelled ok...the trash was overflowing with paper towels. To be noted it was a shared public... More

Staying nearby. Event at convention center. Extremely convenient. The pizza was good. Cheese fries mediocre. Cookies delicious. Bottled beer selection good. Great casual atmosphere.

While I've never had a bad slice of pizza here, I prefer ordering a whole pizza most. It's beyond good. And the marinara sauce for the garlic rolls are so good my kids want to drink it.
