    So glad to see Sean and have some of his great food and beers like my old Phi Delta Theta days at UCR. Still great after all these years. The pizza is spot on! Thanks for always supporting the community and keeping us hydrated and well fed! 🍻🍕🍻

    The owner works in the kitchen and takes food orders. He is a hard worker and always there. This place is clean and very inviting. The food is delicious too. Love the pineapple and canadian bacon pizza at this place

    Information provided by this place to Google said they were OPEN today (Sunday) - I WALKED here from a nearby baseball field, only to find them CLOSED, tighter than a drum. FAIL. Nothing says, "We just don't care," like not keeping your online presence up-to-date. Find the Mongolian BBQ place that's nearby to here - you won't be disappointed..!

    My favorite place for pizza in riverside. Great beer and the owner is the nicest guy. The employeesare always helpful and the wings are great also. I wish i could tell you more about the food but im a creature of habit and cant seem to order anything else. Pizza and wings for the win. The other food looks really good. Maybe 1 day i will try something else.

    My favorite is the blazing chicken pizza, there is just something about that pizza that's so good the cheese they use is also really good and the bread... 😋😋 you can't get that quality at another To-go store. Another recommendation would be the creamsicle beer. This goes to those that don't like beer or the bitter taste. I defiantly think it's worth a shot. Love the customer service, very nice guy always sweet.

    I've never been but found this place by sear luck. It's kind of tricky finding the entrance but once your in, boom! A hidden gem. Pizza was great and nice variety of beers for sure. Service was ok but to their defense it got busy. Outside of that, it was clean, was cool inside and they had the games on the TV. I will be back.

    Love this place. Just moved to the area, and Gateway has quickly become one of my favorite places to watch a game and eat great pizza.

    Went here for breakfast and was attracted due to great reviews... so happy we went here! EXCEPTIONAL experience. The owner was the hostess and due to the wait we were given blood mary's to sip on while waiting. Staff, food, experience was beyond amazing. Highly recommend. Location was also adorable in a little wooded area.

    The owner is very friendly. When me and my friend went here, we didn't know what to expect. The owner is a great conversationist, he greeted us, and helped us out with drinks. 100% gonna come back here for some more drinks and food. They also have a small area for pool/ 8ball.

    The cool thing about this place is that they can accommodate large groups for lunch and atmosphere is great you can talk really loud and no one's going to be bothered because the music loud already and you can have all ages come and the food is good and the same guy's been running a joint forever and he's super nice and I love the variety of the menu also. Chicken pizza is delish and I really enjoyed my tuna sandwich, great portions.

    Pizza was really delicious. The restaurant has many couches and comfortable chairs. There are many delicious food and drinks. Just a short walk from UCR. Not crowded at 3 pm. It’s a very nice place to sit in. Lots of decorations.

    Honestly one of the best places in Riverside for food. Their Pizza is amazing their buffalo chicken I loved. I tried a new one today called Irma's Pizza it had jalapeno pineapple, pepperoni,cheese white sauce, and garlic. I was a little skeptical on it but let me tell you it was one of the best pizza I've ever had. Wasn't able to snap a full picture of it because it was gone before I even knew it. Definitely a good place to eat and relax.

  • 1/5 Reynaldo G. 1 year ago on Google

  • 5/5 Yuridia R. 1 year ago on Google
    still a great place to eat. service is wonderful, food is delicious and reasonably priced. the place is not too quite and not too loud. I cam study there quite well.

  • 1/5 Eva O. 2 years ago on Google
    21$ for a medium pizza with 2 toppings? I don't know why this place has only 1 $, it's very expensive

  • 5/5 Fernando L. 2 years ago on Google
    It's a nice 'Getaway' from the hustle and bustle after a long day on campus. Pitchers are fairly priced and service is great! Beer is always cold and food is hot and cooked to order. I've never had anything short of a great time whenever I visit. Best place to play pool and relax! Its a little quieter during the day so its perfect for grabbing a drink while grinding out some papers.

  • 5/5 Matt B. 2 years ago on Google
    Everything I've ever had on this menu is good. My favorite is the Blazing Chicken Pizza! Be careful though, it does have a little kick. If you can't handle anything spicy it's not for you. 1 hour free parking before 6pm, 2 hours free after 6pm.

  • 5/5 Luc 3 years ago on Google
    Nice like spot. there was a new company called garage promoting an IPA and it was good. got a free glass

  • 5/5 Frances T. 2 years ago on Google

  • 5/5 William H. 2 years ago on Google

  • 5/5 Mary S. 3 years ago on Google
