Q: Where do you like to eat out?
A: The Parlor (Pizzeria, in Phoenix)

Q: What makes their salads and pizzas so tasty?
A: Fresh vegetables and seasonings grown at the restaurant, (and) homemade pizza crust.
Q: Anything else rave-worthy about The Parlor?

Q: Is there any restaurant you’re itching to try?
