I am a lover of Chicago-style deep dish pizza, so we decided to try The Shop. While the pizza was quite good, it is not traditional deep dish. The crust has a cornmeal flavor. We enjoyed the pizza very much, just don't go expecting Chicago style pizza. We also split a green salad, which was done very well and also delicious. Decent beer selection, and my wife tried one of their cocktails - very good. Even though it's a strip mall, the patio seating is quite pleasant.

We were seated outdoors in the patio which was nice and just enclosed enough for privacy but also nice enough to enjoy the outside sun. We tried both the deep dish pizza and thin crust and was very impressed. Since moving out from east coast, didn't think we would find good deep dish pizza out here but was excited to find a place with delicious pizza. The deep dish pizza crust was just crunchy enough and the meatballs filling was delicious. Staff was very friendly and we had a great experience. Will be coming back for sure.

We went during the period between lunch and dinner. Service was slower to get to us and our second beers were forgotten till we asked at the end.

Then we were overcharged bu two beers. Hoping this is not the norm. The food was excellent.

We really like this place ancc DC want to see it succeed. The quality and service has dropped a lot since we first started going. It doesn’t taste as good and the service was slow. Please get it back to what you started with guys, we need an awesome pizza shop in Rancho!

Would've given 4.5 stars if I could -- great impromptu date night! Drinks were good, and the pizza was delicious. We ordered the large "Where's the Meat" and weren't disappointed -- the sauce is great and the house-made meatballs were really yummy. I could see how things could get a little pricey, but for a casual date night with a cocktail and a shared pizza it was reasonable. We'll definitely be back!

After being very clear of what I needed the order did not come out as I requested. There was no way to fix it so they had to redo the pizza. I insisted my friends eat their food. They need an extremely generous reduction on my bill.

Excellent food and service. Difficult to find pizza with cornmeal crust - this place has it and does it very well in their deep dish selection. Interesting selection of wines and aperitifs. Without asking, our waitress offered a taster of a new wine on their list. Team approach to service. All great!

It's been a while since I've been out to lunch with a girlfriend thanks to Covid. Maybe I just haven't noticed that prices have skyrocketed. We both ordered the RB Lunch. For $18 you get a small plate of lettuce (no tomato or any other veggie), a personal size cheese pizza and a finger of wine. The server was very attentive. The outdoor seating was about 25% full on a Friday at noon. Hope they survive.

Great service with patio seating and a good supply of heaters to keep everyone warm. Excellent Burrata (actually best I have had), followed by really excellent salad and great pizza. The beers were great, the wine selection a little underperforming but still ok and I think better known for their cocktails. We will be going back for sure and bringing family and other friends. We have been bragging about this new find for us!

We loved The Shop. It's a little hard to find in the middle of an RB strip mall, but once you locate it, they have a nice outdoor patio. It all feels very safe if you're looking for outdoor dining. And just as importantly, the food is delicious. They're known for their deep-dish pizzas. They have several 'specialties', but you can also build your own. Salads are good too. My wife and I shared a small deep-dish and a salad. Both were plenty large to share among 2 people. They also have an extensive beer and wine list. We'll definitely return.
