    So our family took to the town this last weekend and decided to try a favorite on this list that was compiled. We went to Twins in Clio and all we can say is amazing! The pizza was probably the best we’ve had in a very long (the last few pizza nights have been chain). The staff was so friendly and pleasant, as were the customers! This is definitely one we will revisit. Now onto the next one…I want to try Big Brutus! Thank you for the “challenge” in making sure we have experienced all of these!
