“Huge pizza slices and great lunch specials. Good place for a casual bite and the workers were friendly. Happy to have stumbled on this place while visiting.” – Ari A.

“Amazing! Enjoyed everything about this place. Plenty of seating as you walk in. Order at the counter just like New York Style 😉… we ordered our usual half cheese half pepperoni 🍕 and it’s every bit New York style. The sauce is yummy! The crust is perfect. We are totally going back!” Mario G.

“While in NC a few weeks ago, we decided to order pizza, not from the commercialized places we’re all very familiar with. We ordered take-out. It was ready when promised, piping hot when we got home, and delicious. The garlic rolls were also very good. There were ZERO left overs.” Jennifer L.
