    Chicago Fire calzone. Decent amount of meats and peppers. The 'Fire' was… umm… delayed.

    Just saw someone stand on a table to update the blackboard. Will he clean the table before customers are seated there? Don't know yet, but I hope so.

    Came on on Monday, and the buffet was just $5.50. I don't know whether that's a regular event, but it's certainly worth asking.

    Don't let the server talk you into the ghost face killah. Its $7.29 and tastes like spicy dust. Worst beer I've ever had

    Come for Happy Hour (3-6, M-F) and sit in the bar. Great specials on mini pizzas and appetizers. Wednesdays, of course, are buy-two-get-one-free for World Beer Tour Members so it's packed. Come early.

    Don't even try to eat healthy here -- not happening. Forget calories for a night and have fun toasting beers and pizza with friends. The caesar salad is one of the best anywhere. Great pizza.

    Always excellent customer service. If they mess up an order they almost always compensate you for it and then some.

    Don't get a salad .my friend and I had different ones and they were both bad. I had recommended the salad, because I had A good one once. The lettuce was tasteless. Anyone else have the same problem?

    The beer tour and their holiday mini-tours are great. In addition, they have good food too. I recommend trying the Italian Nachos or the Sicilian Pepperoni Rolls.
