Have tried pizza in many different places and this is one of the best. It is almost like another pizza place in Downtown Lynchburg. My family had the Margarita Pizza and I had the Pepperoni. Both were very good. We also liked the Cesar Salad. It was enough for 2 People. For Lunch it was just a little more expensive than it should be.

Price: The price can get expensive for lunch if you're getting a pizza and a drink. My advice is to share a pizza ($8) and a side salad ($3.50) with someone. Otherwise the price is just too cost prohibitive for me to go there (I'm not a college student). When you walk in, you order at the register and they bring the food out to you.

Food: I've always loved their pizzas. They have an imaginative (but short) menu of pizzas, but you can always just make your own. I've tried their sandwiches too, and can recommend them. The white pizza can get a little greasy and hurt the roof of your mouth (hard to explain), but this wasn't a problem for the sicilian pizza that I got.

Atmosphere: Today we ate outside. The outside seating area is better than most places, with a somewhat private area, but you can look at the people coming out of McDonald's and their parking lot next door. Inside is really cool - whoever decorated this place is a genius because you can tell that they were imaginative with the materials they used, but they also used inexpensive materials to make a dining area that gives a good vibe, but is still functional for customers and easy to keep clean (I'm guessing).

Cleanliness: This is a real restaurant, by that I mean it's run by people that know how to run a restaurant. I've heard a rumor that these are the same people that own Waterstone pizza. Be sure to get yourself a plate at the drink station or you could eat from the pizza plate.

It's not perfectly round. There are bubbles and warts and places that aren't uniformly brown. It doesn't look like a commercial. What this is --is PIZZA, the way pizza is supposed to be. Crisp and chewy all at the same time, with every glorious imperfection giving praise to the hands that crafted it. We enjoyed a wild mushroom and a white pizza. Both were to perfection! Garlicky and cheesy--with just enough "stuff" to complement the crust, without overwhelming. Fair pricing, too. Yummy, yummy, yummy. This is almost "Pittsburgh good"--and for pizza, that's pretty high praise.

I asked the waitress for her recommendation. I had the Buffalo chicken pizza since the waitress said it was spicy. I am not sure I would classify it as spicy, it had been covered with tobasco sauce. The pizza crust was very cracker like, but in the end, being covered with tobasco just did not do it for me.

This is a great place. There was not a long wait and everyone is friendly. I only thing I had a little issue with is there was not salt and pepper shakers on each table. I had to go look for some, and when I found none I had to go to the front counter. But, they were very, very nice so I can recommend this restaurant 100%.
