Everything on their menu is fabulous, simple eats and inexpensive. They are well know for their Pizza. Small eating area with a bar. Same menu even though they have changed owners and the new name is Sharp's Tavern.

I had been referred here by a customer at work. We made the drive and they weren't open. Came back a second time and had high hopes... The pizza was nothing special and the prices were not exactly competitive. It left much to be desired, we won't be going back

These folks do a very good tavern pizza, with lots of toppings. Served hot, on the aluminum foil it was cooked on. The beers are many and cold. Good place to enjoy these. It is a neighborhood tavern, a bit on the crowded side, without large floor space surrounding tables and booths. Enjoy!!

How have we lived within 30 miles of this place for over 30 years and never heard of it? The pizza was surprisingly good. Crust was crispy, toppings were generous and overflowing which is what creates the crispy, slightly burned edges that are so delicious! It is a bar, but it's not a dark, unfriendly place--I envisioned walking in to... More

The best pizza anywhere - including Chicago! Prepared perfectly with an abundance of toppings. We've been going there for over 20 years and both our children and now our grandchildren can be kept entertained by the games in the back room - the perfect place for large groups and families. They also have the best French fries ever. We always... More

If you're a Darke County Ohio local, this is by far the best pizza place around. No, it isn't fancy or big, but you will always get good, hot food, a friendly smile and a great pizza...with those little burnt edges that you can only get at a local place. We eat there often, and have NEVER had bad service,... More

I was introduced to this place by some friends about a year ago, and have been back several times. It is about half-way between home and the Dayton Airport, so because of the distance we don't get to go often, but whenever we are in the area, there is no discussion, of course we are going to stop in! Having... More
