Thought Roberta’s was boring. I ate there several times after being on talk shows on the Heritage Radio Network. I don’t understand the raves. Sure, there must be some great things, but I seem not to have eaten any of those.

My brother lives right around the corner, so the trek wasn’t out of the way, but that aside, I thought the pizza was great when I visited last month. I may have felt differently if we had waited for 30-60min for a table, but instead, we opted to order at the To Go counter next door, which took a fraction of the time, and sat outside and ate with a beer.
We had the Margherita and Bee Sting (which I believe is off menu).
