    The pizza is amazing.... Go up to the workers doing the topping for some cheese and they will give you some fresh mozzarella to eat.

    Honest opinion: pizza is good, not great. Average to slightly above-average. Not worth making a special trip. If you're in Oak Ridge, then, yes, give it a try. Atmosphere is cool, though.

    One of my favorite pizza places. Now taking credit/debit cards. But leave the checkbook at home no checks accepted.

    They take credit and debit cards now! Menus are bigger and my waitress just said that real size plates are on the way.

    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.

    Jessica Poynter · May 25, 2014
  • Kathleen S.

    Greasy pizza, less than great service, and loud atmosphere. Not for me.

    Great pizza. Love the look and feel of the place. Not sure if they sold more pizza's in house or out the door? Either way I'll be back when in the area.

    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.

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