Overall solid pizza. Good crust and sauce. Definitely would recommend the Margherita pizza!

Perhaps I was just in the mood for this kind of pizza, but it was really exceptional. Perfect crispy crust, delicious creamy cheese and nearly perfect sauce. I actually enjoyed it a good bit more than I enjoyed the location in New Haven. Really strong work by these folks tonight.

Very good dough/crust - don’t be fooled by the photo this is a very light/thin crust pizza which is how I like it. The sauce needed a bit more pop. Overall solid pizza.

Lots of flop and oil but sometimes thats what I’m in the mood for. Good Saturday night pizza! Will be back!

Very doughy. Lots of flop. Ok taste. Maybe New Haven is better? Just average. Ok crunch

-Pepe’s Original Tomato- Was excited when I moved to Tuckahoe, knowing that a Pepe’s location was eight minutes down the road, but if you’re expecting to draw comparisons to the original Pepe’s in New Haven, expect otherwise. First, there were only two people working in the entire place, scrambling like mad. They were extremely hard-working and deserved to be tipped well, but to no fault of their own, all of the orders were mixed up and my pie was sitting there for ten-plus additional minutes. Secondly, while the crust looked clean, crispy, and had a good undercarriage, it tasted on the stale side and there was no crunch. Lastly, while the sauce didn’t taste canned in any way, it certainly wasn’t authentic, either. All in all, the pie was average at best but just don’t go in expecting similarities with New Haven.

Good slice, cut weird, good sauce very sweet, a little thicker then I would like, and the cheese is good but it was greasy

Reminds me of airport pizza. Mass produced, greasy, poor quality cheese. Not fresh. Still going to eat it but not going out of my way for it. Literally the kind you’d get in an airport.

Been here a couple of times and Pepe’s has never done me wrong, but this location pales in comparison to the New Haven location. I’ve ordered the Tomato Pie, the Tomato Pie w/ Mozzarella, and the Fresh Tomato Pie (pictured). The Fresh Tomato Pie was very underwhelming: cheese was good, but no tomato sauce below it, seasoning on cheese/dough made up for it a bit, but not enough; fresh tomatoes were good, but does not replace the tomato sauce standard in regular pies. The Tomato Pie w/ Mozzarella is the best, so that is what I am basing the score on: cheese good, but seems like maybe sourced differently than other Pepe locations; crust and bottom charred and crispy, but my tongue gets a few cuts every time I eat it so perhaps too much; tomato sauce good

Travelled from the middle of Queens to Yonkers to go to this place. Worth the trip the tomato pie is tangy and great. The regular slice with cheese was so thin in places that it was opaque. Due to the Rona I had to bring it back to Queens and after 20 minutes in an insulated bag it was floppy but the flavor more than made up for any flop.

Best pizza in the area, other than Johnny's in Mt Vernon. Not as good as the original New Haven location, but much better than anywhere else on Central Avenue. After being disappointed a couple weeks ago with a new spot in Hartsdale, I had to get my Pepe's fix, and it never disappoints. Got a small white clam pie too. Can't beat coal-fired pizza. I'd highly recommend eating the pizza straight out of the oven when they open up, but since dining in isn't available now, taking it home is the next best option. Treat yourself to a slice in the car to get the best experience before it starts cooling off. The tomato sauce is fantastic - only better tomato sauce I've had was Sally's in New Haven. It's worth the drive if you're far away. The roasted red peppers are a great topping, and if it's in season during the summer, try the fresh tomato pie.

I don't understand the appeal of this place. So plain and generic tasting. It's but bad but nothing special at all.

Very chewy. Not sure if they had an off day during corona season but very disappointed.

Very good pizza. This is half white clam pizza & half tomato pie. Thin crispy crust & fresh ingredients. Didn’t meet my very high expectations, but this is just one of many locations in a mini chain.

Fair needs alittle of improvement on the Tomato Dough Dough was very good, well made and cooked. Tomato Sauce Zangy and watered, this was the downside. I got use to the watery zangy sauce so much that it started to bore me. Mozzarella: Typical Crust Crust was fun, tasty and the best part of the pizza. Crunchy as well Combination Overall the sauce needs to be thicker, the fresh mozzarella kept slipping around the watered down tomato sauce.
