Pizza Place
$$
“The OG flatbread pizza in the area. Often a wait but get there early and get a table. One of our favorites is the dancing heart pizza for its simplicity and nutty flavor but it's not for everyone. The punctuated equilibrium flatbread is a safer bet as well as the specials they have each day. Also enjoy the great beer selection, bar and huge tables you can reserve for your party if you wish.”
