for the life of me i cant understand why people love this place.
I live about 3 blocks away. Been there a few times, had pizza, pasta. Never very good. Ordered a sammich to go tonight, just for something different. Literally no better than something i could get at the airport. In fact, very much like an airport sammich.

HP is good for sitting outside drinking a beer on a nice night like tonight...but the food is suckage.

Didn't much care for it, either. Luisa's is 2 feet away and they top out at 20 bucks/pizza so we go there when the once in a blue moon pizza urge hits.

Hawthornes is a crap shoot, great pizza but their $5.99 Calzone is about the size of a hot pocket. Everything is overpriced too.

I love Hawthornes Pizza, I live close to the one in Mint Hill. It has excellent pizza and a good atmosphere if you eat in.

cool....I'll take a large with sausage, peppers, garlic and a couple of $5 bills. Anyone who will pay $20 for a pizzza has one of two things....too much money or not enough brains.

10 bucks for a large pizza? I don't live in 1984.

Their white pizza is pretty good. Also, the meatball and the chicken parm subs are great. I'd also like to know where you get a large pizza for $10 and not fast food pizza. Papa johns, pizza hut, domino's etc....
