But before that, grab some Parmesan and read on.
What Makes It Good: The fact that you can make your own pizza combination, find gluten-free options as well as enjoy the best classics as well as some fun specialty pies. Kung Pow anyone (curried pulled chicken, peppers, onions, mozzarella cheese, toasted coconut flakes)? Or what about Sunday Dinner (Sunday gravy, mozzarella, sausage, and meatballs) or Loaded Mashed Potato (garlic mashed potato, scallion, bacon, caramelized onion, and cheddar cheese)?
Folks also like the all-Americana fire engine theme, the innovative cocktails and the social "buzz" of the place. Call it a two-alarm kind of eatery.
