This little pizza place is on a side street of the popular college hang out “Mill Avenue.” It’s a pretty small place with a couple high tops and two counters and gets pretty busy during high time (dinner-time and the weekend). There are a couple tables outside too, but in the summer, it’s a little hard to bear. 
They’ve got everything from cheese to Hawaiian to veggie to BBQ chicken! Every slice I’ve had hasn’t disappointed. For drinks, they have a soda fountain and also sell bottled sodas like Jones Soda.

At $3.25 for a specialty slice and about $1.75 for a large drink (or the combo of the day, a certain slice + a drink for $4: today is was Hawaiian!), it’s a pretty good place to go on a budget. After all, it’s a popular college hangout and we college kids can’t exactly afford the ritz.
For kids:
As the slices are pretty huge, two kids could probably split one! It’s a family-friendly environment, excluding the fact that there aren’t a lot of seats, so a large family couldn’t sit together. Also, there are no chairs inside, they’re all stools with no backs which are for high tops, so it could be hard to get the kiddos up and to stay up.
If you need a quick lunch, this is the place to hit up! It’s a great option for a slice and a drink. Especially if you wanna get some shopping done on Mill, it’s central to all the action. Another plus is it’s open late so it’s perfect for those midnight cravings!
