Hungry Hiker Gourmet Pizza
When you order the Hungry Hiker Gourmet Pizza, you get an 8-inch personal pan pizza made to your liking. They hand toss their crust and then add a zesty sauce plus pepperoni, Italian sausage, bacon, and ham. Cheese goes over the top of it all before it lands in the oven to get golden brown.

If you want to pair your comfort food with a cold brew, you’re in luck. Their beer selection features many local favorites that you cannot find anywhere else. If you’re not sure which one to order, ask your server for their recommendations. They will give you the inside scoop on which brews delight their guests the most.

Insider Tips:
– The restaurant is not wheelchair or stroller accessible since it’s up a flight of stairs and there is no elevator.
– When buying a meal, you can upgrade your fries to onion rings but expect to pay an extra charge.
– Weekends are often quite busy, leaving you waiting for a table and again waiting for your food to arrive. If you have the extra time, it’s still worth a visit since their food is so good.
