The Pizza Factory is a good place to meet up with friends for lunch. They have really affordable lunch specials. The salad bar is good, and you HAVE to get one of the twisty bread sticks. If it's your birthday, they will give you a free pizza in the shape of the #s for the age you are. I think the food (other than the breadsticks) is just OK and a little bit on the pricey side. If I'm going to spend that much for "Italian" I'd much rather go to Olive Garden.
