    Short staffed (2 servers) and the kitchen messed up our pizza toppings not once but twice. We got out with a free pizza to go which helped the experience all around. The pizza was really good! I’m a big Detroit style fan. I’d go back and order to go. Don’t go if you’re in a hurry.

    We had a large crowd and they sat us in the back of the restaurant which was fine, although we didn’t know we were right next to an exterior door that was opened and closed for patrons. The server was excellent, I think he was working the floor alone. He was polite, friendly and helpful especially with two water spills.

    We actually didn’t even get a chance to eat. We had a reservation but waited 10 minutes for someone to even acknowledge us, even after we watched them seat the people directly in front of us at the host stand. Staff seemed less than thrilled that we were there. We ordered drinks but were told that the kitchen was extremely backed up. When our drinks were delivered, we asked about the back up and were told “I asked the manager and the kitchen but they don’t tell us anything.” We asked for the check for our drinks at that point. Waited 10 minutes and the check never came. Left cash on the table and left and will never be back.

    I will start by saying our meal was partially comped by the manager after we complained. We had to wait a half hour past our reservation, not a huge deal since it was a Saturday and busy, but when other parties that walk in after you that had reservations at the same time but check in after you(they we late) get sat before you, that’s slightly frustrating. Took over 20 minutes for our drinks to be delivered and we all thought they were awful. How you mess up a margarita, 3 sangria’s and an old fashioned in Kentucky is beyond me. Our appetizers took an hour and half to be prepared and at that point we were about to cancel our food when one of the pizzas was delivered, the runner set the pizza down, said “I don’t know what this is, but here you go.” It took another 30 minutes for the other 4 entrees to be delivered to the table. At that point we had already asked for boxes. The one burger that was ordered was not supposed to have cheese but of course it did, but at that point it wasn’t even worth saying anything, we just wanted to leave. Four of my guests are in town on a business trip and I choose this place as it looked fun and the food looked good. It was an awful experience and I’ve only mentioned the food. Not the fact we were sat by the back door(it’s cold out at 8pm with the door constantly opening) that 10 little girls opened every other minute running in and out while there parents sat a few tables over getting hammered having the time of their lives clearly forgetting they had children until one of them ran in bleeding. I’m embarrassed I choose this place. Like I said the manager comped part of the bill, and from the looks of it she had to that for other tables. Unfortunate evening.

    We were there for an hour and a half and never received our pizza or salads. Our waitress was apologetic but informed us our food wasn’t coming any time soon. We had show tickets and had to leave without eating. No one around us had their food either. When I asked the manager about our order, she couldn’t have cared less. Will never go there again.

    Every time we eat here or try to eat here, the wait staff is so rude. The food isn’t worth the effort. One time we went in and were told that since we didn’t have a reservation, we couldn’t sit outside, on a nice day. I immediately got a reservation, while standing in front of her, and the host rolled her eyes when I told her we had reservations. This last time we had reservations and they wouldn’t let us sit outside. Every place else was seating people outdoors. Not worth dealing with these AHs.

    Perhaps I just schedule the wrong night but last two visits service has been lacking. With reservation stood unattended at hostess station for 5 or so minutes then around 15 minutes until waiter even came to table to welcome, order drinks, etc. pizza wasn’t also up to what I remember. Far greasier than previous visits. So perhaps an off night but not unlike previous visit. Shame too as the first few visits we were blown away by experience.

    We waited an hour for 2 pizzas when the restaurant was only about a third full. Our waitress asked us if we were ready to order 3 different times- each time we said yes- only to have her say she would be back. Same thing happened when we were finished and needed boxes. It was absolutely freezing inside- to the point my kids were shivering- and the appetizers were just ok.

    Pizza was good, especially the edge of the crust and sausage on the Big Al. Prices felt a tad high for what was provided, burger was $16-19 without any sides as an example. Service held the experience back. Took 15 minutes to get two cans of root beer, then 20 minutes to get a can of coke. At the end of the meal, it then took 45 minutes (and asking three different people) just to get the bill. Whole experience took 1 hour and 45 minutes somehow.

    Our table was ready, per the reservation and we were seated immediately. The server was prompt and courteous and explained various items on the menu. We ordered two beers, which were out of stock, and ordered iced teas instead. Neither of us understood the concept of Mexican Coke or Mexican Sprite. The chicken appetizer was plentiful, and in my opinion, have the portion and half the price, but overall, very good. Our pizza was tasty and hot from the oven, but I thought it was a little small for the price we paid.

    We went at 1:30 and there was only one other patron at the bar. We were able to order and receive our food in a timely fashion. There were a couple TVs with sports on behind the bar. Plenty of drink options available. The pizza was the perfect size for two people. The pizza sauce was perfect with a hint of sweet. Would go to again. Perfect place for lunch.

    Do not eat here. You can tell the mozzarella sticks are made from a frozen bag since 3 of ours weren’t all the way cooked. The cheese wasn’t even melted. The fries were barely warm. And the pizza wasn’t great. We were told the mozzarella sticks would’ve taken off the bill. Didn’t notice until it was too late that they weren’t. Needless to say, we won’t be back.

    This is the 2nd time our family group of 1 1 has visited this restaurant after making a reservation for a GROUP OF 11 and were not seated together. The first time was one year ago for our 19 year old twins birthday celebration. I gave the restaurant the benefit of the doubt the first time because of pandemic circumstances and things just opening back up. Last night, no excuses. We were not seated together, there were absolutely no apologies made and no attempt to help adjust the situation. Not once did our server smile nor did she act even slightly personable. Oddly this was the exact experience we had last year. Now that it has happened twice I will never go back under any circumstances nor will I miss the opportunity to tell anyone not to go to this sad excuse for a restaurant. If that is the general type of behavior that is tolerated by the restaurant management I'm not at all sure how they are still open. I assure you it is not the food. Super limited menu, very pricey for pizza bread and deep fried chicken and a decline in quality from a year ago. Obviously they are cutting corners but definitely not cutting prices. For 11 of us WITH A 20% UNDESERVED TIP AUTOMATICALLY ADDED to our bill, the total was $300!!!!!! Pizza bread my friends, no talent or gourmet skills involved. A hefty $37 for a pitcher of sangria. I didn't think the price was out of line until we were served with what I would call a mini pitcher at best. My daughter serves at a very upscale restaurant in Bloomington and she was very surprised with the price. By far the most offensive service I think I have ever received, and to think there was a $48. tip automatically included. No wonder our stone cold face waitress didn't bother to concern herself with our satisfaction. I hope I've said enough to convince anyone considering to go to this hotdog stand, to save their money and hit a drive thru for better hospitality. Almost forgot they serve their sodas in the plastic bottles. High class!

    Our waitress was friendly and pleasant. However, she would disappear for long periods of time. It took forever for to get our initial drink order although she brought us menus and introduced herself as soon as we were seated. The food was DELICIOUS!

Ended up leaving because we had soccer tickets. This is the 2nd time this has happened to us there. We wanted to give it another chance because we understand things happen. Won’t be back.

    Drinks came slow and were just ok, we ordered food and 45 mins later they told us that we ordered was out. They did comp the one dish and were apologetic. Server was ok but we never got to order another drink. All in all kind of a blah experience. The foods always been great for takeout. We will stick with that from now on.

    Our server was very disengaged with our group. Barely checked on us at all and forgot drinks. The restaurant was not busy at all and we were told they weren’t taking any more reservations or walk ins. Which is understandable if they were short staffed, but our server just was not attentive at all. Food was great as always!
