i had some appetizers. Good. Nothing outstanding. Interestingly, they arenít allowed to serve any coffee/smoothies etc bec Starbucks has a contract barring any competition in the mall.
DW and kids loved it. They were there twice already.

True, itís weird how theyíre not even mentioned as an option by so many when they likely have the cheapest pizza in town without compromising on taste. There are a couple of places with better pizza (IMO) but theirs is very good.

He does events with Tessler catering all the time. He did all the recent BMG neighborhood fundraising events.
