“The "Junkyard" has been a local favorite since it opened its doors. Every dish packs so much flavor, it is hard to narrow down what cuisine is featured here. Greek? Italian? It really does not matter once you try the food. It is just flavorful and that's what matters. The seating can be tight, especially during lunch hours, so you may have to wait for a table large enough if are with a group.”

“They have more than just pizza, but with over 10 specialty pizzas, why not get pizza? They have a nice dinning room, but also offer pick-up and delivery in case you want to eat back in your AirBnB. Our recommendation: ORDER THE WHITSTIX PIZZA!”
