    Love the scissors to cut the pizza, the small paper plates & tiny forks. An Oak Ridge classic.

    Best pizza ever!! The toppings melt off your pizza pie! If your child takes the white plate up to where they are fixing the pizzas they will give them a handful of cheese. Cash or check only.

    Great pizza, but staff is awful and rude. Water tastes like someone peed in the ice machine last year and they never cleaned it. Expect to wait an hour for your food, even when it's not crowded.
