  • Thai Pie is the best!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Come in for happy hour m-f 3-6 for cheapy apps and personal pizzas
  • 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.
  • Enjoying shiner peach dunkel beer
  • 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
  • Always excellent customer service. If they mess up an order they almost always compensate you for it and then some.
  • They have the absolute best fried pickles. Cheap too.
  • Leave your IDs at home, you won't need them!
  • PS blonde with glasses is Emily. Would rather BS with friends & hide in the back than serve customers.
  • Happy hour is the bomb!
  • Happy Hour Personal Pizzas are the best! Order a pizza with alfredo sauce. There is no upcharge to change the sauce.
  • Love the Italian nachos
  • Tuesday night mug specials on drafts. Happy hour food menu also after 9pm
  • Double-deckeroni!
  • Ask for the Thai pie. It's not in the menu anymore but they still make it
  • Pizza & Wings
  • Love the loaded nachos, and yeah the pizza fire too
  • pizza!!!!!!!!!!!!!
