Lakeside Pizza and Grill: Review 2

Since there were a lot of comments on the blog about Lakeside Pizza and Grill the past couple of days. I wanted to put a post up about my most recent experience.

RANT ON If you don’t want to do it then just tell us… you don’t have to lie and say it will take 40 minutes. There are […]
