This is a great local joint. Simply the best pizza around. Nice atmosphere. Good beer and wine. Try this place if you're in town. You will return. Be prepared as it is a busy place.

Pizza is, for lack of a better term, out of this world. Whether it’s cheese or the Icarus...you will be amazed! Owners are awesome and it is always a great place to pick up your Friday Night stay in and chill pizza!

The pizza here is great! It's a unique place with an interesting set-up. The beer is cold and yummy too! We will definitely be back, just occasionally though since the prices are a little high.

Besides being the place to hang out in the evening in Fruita, the pizza, salads, and brews at this laid-back hole-in-the-wall are delicious! Along with hand-tossed crusts, there are lots of good combos for pizza toppings or you can make your own. The salads were...More
