After driving 10 hours from Florida, Emporia was our end-of-the-first-day stop. My son and I both felt like pizza and Pino's had good reviews. The place isn't much to look at but some local police officers were ordering when we went in so we agreed, it was probably at least ok. We ordered a half pepperoni, half "white" pizza. The waitress checked with the chef to be sure he could make it. He could and when it arrived 15 minutes later it was really good!My son also ordered garlic bread which wasn't worthwhile. With a pasta dish, it would be fine but it's on crusty bread and not the appy we expected.The pizza, though, was very yummy and if a road trip takes me through Emporia again, I'll stop in!

My wife and I just returned from dinner at this large sports bar just off I95 outside of Emporia. I had spaghetti and meatballs which was pretty good for an Italian meal so far from Italy. My wife had eggplant parm which she thoroughly enjoyed. We each also had a beer.Our server, Sydney, was excellent, with a big smile throughout our meal. One problem was that when we entered a sign indicated that we should seat ourselves, but then we waited quite awhile for anyone to come over and give us menus. Nearly all the tables were taken, as were nearly all the seats at the bar on this, a Tuesday evening. Free parking at the door. Our bill was less than $40, including tip and tax, which we felt was quite reasonable.

My co-worker went to the restaurant on Monday, July 25, 2005 and dined in. We selected the buffet for lunch and needless to say, we encountered numerous problems.1. We had to wait at least 20 minutes before a 2 pizzas were placed on the buffet.2. After the pizza was placed on the buffet, a group of young people at another table proceeded to stack their plates with numerous slices of pizza. One young man topped his plate with 6 seperate slices and management watched with no concern while at least 3 of us in the restaurant returned to our seats with no pizza.3. After 10 more minutes one more pizza was placed on the buffet and this same group of people made a mad dash for the buffet cleaning it out again with the exception of only 4 slices. Completely diqusted by what as happening, one other lady in the restaurant finally picked up her purse to leave. When she approached the cashier, she refused to pay for the buffet and exclaimed that she never had a chance to eat anything and she was not paying for what she never received. She was allowed to leave without paying.4. My co-worker and I ate the 4 slices that were left. By this we were 40 minutes into the meal and had to return to work. The asst. manager made us pay for the entire buffet even though we only consumed 2 slices of pizza a piece. (individual meals were $6.58 a piece which included the buffet and a drink). We would have gotten a better deal if we had ordered the personal pan pizza.5. Furthermore, we watched as several employees took money from diners and placed it in the cash register and then return to the preparation area to prepare and cook pizza without washing their hands or wearing gloves. 6. The asst. manager stopped us on the way out of the door after we paid for this meal and asked for our names so that we could get a free buffet at a later time and we told him no thank you. I do not ever expect to eat in that restaurant again. He really should have just given us our money back out of good faith. We ended up paying a total of $13.16 for 4 small slices of pizza and 2 drinks.
