in this nondescript location, you will find some of the best pizza you will ever taste. The service is fast and friendly. the prices are very reasonable. Seating can be a challenge but with rapid turnover, that is usually not that much of a problem....More

I love some thin crust NY style pizza, and this was tasty. Nothing fancy, not gourmet pizza... just good. On the wall they have pics of the owner with Deniro, Jeter, and many more. I figure if it's good enough for them, I couldn't be...More
