I recently had a bad experience here, but it's due to a new owner. The pizza we ordered wasn't made very well, and it even had the wrong toppings. I'm guessing the new owner isn't making very much money because the pizza we ordered barely had any cheese or sauce on it.

I was asking around and sometime in 2005 there was a new ownership. If you haven't been there since 05' (this happened to me) it's become way worse. I've grown up around that area until college and it used to be a great hole in the wall pizza place, I even had some friends who worked there. We would play card games there while we ordered a pizza, the owner would even let us stay there if he had a delivery, the place was a blast.

Recently I went to visit my family members, called up a few friends and we decided to hang out there. There was a new owner, some fat guy with black hair (old owner was a blonde guy and not fat) and the guy was completely rude. He claimed our card games offended other customers, when the maximum occupancy is about 12. Now we came with 4 people and ordered drinks and an X-Large pizza, there was a lady and her child ordering a salad and some child size pizza.

We didn't want to bother anyone so stopped playing, we didn't even use foul language to begin with but we didn't want to be rude so we went outside in the front and just talked. After some time the owner told us our order was ready and it was boxed up, we clearly said it was dine in, so we place it on a table and began eating. The owner asked us why we were eating here, so we made a few sarcastic comments about the tables being empty (nothing that would offend anyone) and the owner told us to leave.

So here's the big joke about the whole thing, the owner gave us the wrong order. Some older man, maybe around his 50's, came in and picked up his order. He opened the box and began yelling at the owner and demanded a refund. We were just standing outside watching, and cheering.

The pizza is made poorly, and the owner has no idea how to treat his customers. I'm never going to this place ever again, I'd rather toss a Digiorno in the oven because it taste better and won't treat anyone like garbage.

Completely the opposite for me, I ordered a x-large pizza from there and it was terrible. It didn't even taste like it had any sauce on it and the bread tasted undercooked yet it was burnt. The delivery took over a hour and the delivery boy didn't have change for $20 on a $12 order.

I tried them again and was specific about how I wanted the pizza prepared and they gave me the wrong order. I called up and told them the problem but they didn't want to refund me. I drove down there and showed them the pizza and they were completely rude to me and never gave me a refund.

My daughter takes dancing lessons there and when she tried to order food they pretended to be busy. There's never customers there either, it's just poor service. Not only is the pizza terrible they often use 2 liter bottles of soda for drinks.

I recommend avoiding this place.

PROS: cheap prices but you get what you pay for
CONS: terrible food with terrible service

Ive only tried this place once, I usually go to Z pizza or dominos. My friend orders from here all the time though. we got delivery. the timing was very good with no issues at all. the pizza was quite good, with plenty of toppings, but too saucy. the sauce was gooing everywhere and took up to much of the taste. if you like it like that, then youll love it. me i dont. still a good place, just tell them easy on the sauce.
