everything is an extra charge

Big hype for an average pizza. Long lines, long wait, non-negotiable included 15% gratuity for absolutely NO SERVICE (WHY???). You order your pizza at a counter, not at your table. Why a tip? For what, not spitting too much in your pizza?

I am a very good tipper. I will tip extra for good service. So why are we charged a tip before the pizza is delivered. And to say the people complaining are the ones that dont tip 15-17% is just very rude and condensending. I have noticed

Flew in from Pittsburgh looking for a good place to eat. Found the best pizza I ever ate! Food is definitely worth the wait. Also enjoyed the hospitality. Staff went above and beyond to make our visit memorable. Don't miss this place!

The pizza tastes pretty good, but the service is horrible. The lines are long and the wait tedious, but it is worth it. I got hair in my food twice in a row, so I stopped going for a while because of the ick factor, but I think I'm ready

First of all the place is under construction so the parking is limited, you will have to wait until someone leaves to get a parking. If you are a first time customer prepare to read lots of signs all over the place of things you can't do;

Pros: Huge Pizzas

Cons: Taste is only OK, Wait was Long

All the bad reviews are from cranky people who do not normally tip 15-17% so they think gratuity is bad. If you don't like tipping the average, stay home. If you go during lunch rush hours, expect a long wait time. This place is good so
