With hopes of satisfying my pizza slice craving, I entered to an array of pies lined up with slices for my choosing.....in the spirit of One Bite I went straight for the cheese. Decent body on the crust, but laden with a pool of grease from use of a lower quality cheese. I was really hoping for more from this slice, but it did not deliver.....on to the next pizza spot.

Ok, so ordered again and it was much better than my previous experience. It was tasty for sure but the crust was a bit too heavy with flour on the bottom which gave it a subtle chalky feel and taste. The top was a bit too greasy......which is usually an indication of using a lower quality cheese. Overall though it was tasty and was able to give it a perfect fold. Sauce was acceptable. I would order again; they seem to be hit or miss. Ease up on the excess of flour on the bottom please.

Ass a good looking pie, Frankie. A little greasy, but that’s OK. Only real NY pizza in town and if it was in NY it would go toe-to-toe with all but the very best. But we aren’t in NY. Far from it. 30% of why I’m fat can be attributed to this classic joint.

A staple pizza joint in Portland for many Decades. Traditional NY style pies. I could eat this pizza every day. Owner, atmosphere, location, all on point. Do not sleep on this joint. Not for all you fancy vegetable artisan pizza heads. As far as NY pizza goes, this is a long time Portland MUST HAVE!

Got there a few minutes early, so the pizza was hot and fresh. Steamed the whole way to the car and was so large I had to turn it 45-degrees to get it inside. Tangy sauce, delicious pepperoni; a solid, desirable pizza.

Beautiful slice of cheese pie. Slight flop, perfect cheese to sauce ratio... I’m all in

Good amount of cheese and pepperoni. Not a lot of floppy flop here. I couldn’t get over a weird burnt taste or my score might be higher.

Flop test fail! The crust broke as soon as I picked it up. Overall good tasting pizza, the crust was actually crisp. Good amount of cheese!

Really good slice perfect amount of sauce and cheese. It’s a little greasy and has a bit of the New York flop but really solid slice.

Alright Frankie. Old Slice. Zero Flop. Processed Chesse. Dripping with oil. Burnt Bottom. Horrible Sauce with Zero Tang. Burned My Mouth. At a Four Dollar Price Point, it Hurt My Feelings, My Mouth, My Wallet and My Heart. 2.3
