Overall Rating: 5.4/10 The food and experience were good enough but didn't wow me. It was alright, not something I'd rave about. Atmosphere / Service: 8.2/10 The restaurant's distinctive setting is engaging from the moment you see the building and continues as you sit down and take in your surroundings. Initially unclear on the self-service format, a staff member helpfully called out instructions for self-seating and using the QR code for menu and ordering. The process was unexpectedly smooth, despite a typical preference for in-person ordering. The limited menu options were a minor drawback. Food: Margherita Pizza: 5.1/10 The pizza, expected to be a standout given the sparse menu, was just adequate. It arrived quicker than anticipated, hinting at a possibly hastened baking process. The main detractor was the amount of grease, which was excessive, though the base was nicely crispy, and the cheese seemed to be good quality. Bean Dip / Chips: 5.9/10 This appetizer was a pleasant surprise, providing a tasty complement to the pizza. The chips were seasoned with a unique blend that was initially enjoyable but became too strong after several bites. 3 Pokegyms and 1 Pokestop which gave the place a nice added value for Pokemon Go users. Value: 5.8 / 10 Considering the overall experience, the value seems appropriate, and there's some interest in giving the pizza another try in the future to see if the experience gives a different result.

I was fortunate to catch Hutchins Garage right before close while I was in Durham. A wicked pizza joint in an old auto shop, decorated with punk rock idols and hipster stuff. They carry a good number of local/state wide craft beers so I was happy to try one out. We ordered a Mortadella $14 - Italian Salume, fresh & aged mozzarella, roasted cherry tomatoes, topped with arugula and parmesan. - Everything was exactly what we hoped for and the crust was cooked perfectly. It was refreshing to have a light & earthy pizza paired with hefty pint before a night out!

Indoor/outdoor flex space is nice, glad we could bring our dog. Margherita Pizza was OKAY, but very greasy. Had to use SO MANY napkins to sop up the grease, and keep it from getting all over my shirt. The dough/crust was a bit flimsy and very wet, like it wasn't cooked all the way and couldn't withstand the toppings (which were minimal). I like a pizza that isn't super "floppy". Our dog was happy to help eat some slices. The fried polenta was DELICIOUS, definitely get that!

Super cool spot. Repurposed an old garage as a pizza spot and it’s decorated in such a good way that something will catch your eyes on every wall. Pizza is fantastic and the staff were extremely kind and accommodating. Go try it!!!

I had the pizza once for carry out and once in the restaurant. Food is really delicious and the ingredients seemed really fresh. They were playing some cool music that I like to think is curated by someone and not from an algorithm but who knows.

I came as I know one of the owners. My wife is gluten free and the pizza crust t is amazing. Best gluten free pizza she's had to date. And the wheat stuff is pretty darn fine too. Beers selection is great, the Margareta are on-point . If you want some darn good food from good people check this place out.

One of the best places to have a well made pizza around Durham. So many great options to choose from as well. The ambience is wonderful both indoor and outdoor. This is a nice place to enjoy delicious pizza in a relaxing atmosphere.

Personally my favorite pizza in Durham! Love the options that they have, great flavors, very crisp and well baked crusts. I always get the kale & fennel sausage pizza which has never disappointed. Good ambience, almost like a beer garden with mixed indoor/outdoor seating and they do have drinks to order as well. Prices are reasonable for the sizes of the pizza as well.
