Impressive thin crust bar pie

I think Dave was spot on with the 8.2. Very scrumptious bar pie. Cheese and sauce were very tasty. I guess the only negative here for me would be the crust. Could have been a little more crispy.

Serving thin crust pizza to the Bergen county area for over 75 years, Grant Street Cafe has some of the largest and best bar pies around. The homemade dough is a tad thicker than I expected, by bar pie standards, not even close to football pizza thickness. I was shocked at how doughy and soft the middle of the pie was; I thought it was going to be firm with cracker-like crunch. Despite the softness of the majority of the dough, it’s still incredibly tasty with a crust that’s out of this word. Deliciously charred, exquisitely crispy and outrageously crunchy, the crust isn’t just on-point; it’s perfection. The cheese is fairly tight but just melty enough, not as rigid as most bar pies. Very tasty as well, the cheese isn’t plastered to the dough; it has more of an oozy flow than typical bar pie cheese blends. Slightly subdued, the sauce has a hidden sweet and tangy flavor. Not as much spice and kick but plenty flavorful, this is the kind of sauce you find on very good pizza; I wouldn’t mind a smidge more to bring the flavor to the forefront. This is top-of-the-line thin crust bar pie in both taste and texture of the crust. The overall flavor not only meets the standards of all really good bar pies, it exceeds them. The soft texture of the dough is the only area that needs improvement; but the deliciousness of the pie rises above that little drawback. Along with the fantastic flavor, the elite crust makes this travel-worthy pizza. Crispier dough would elevate this score into the high 8s, maybe even push the 9s; but as it stands, this falls into the “must-try” bar pie category.

Super thin, great sauce, and no grease. If the entire pie was as crispy as the crust then this would be dancing in the 9s

We just did Star Tavern and not as good as that. Not bad though. Thin crust.

Thin bar pie, cracker crust. It was good but I would not go out of your way to have it.

Best bar pie! Good sauce to cheese ratio. Undercarriage is good cooked just right and a nice crunch. Always consistent.

Fried pepperoni with vodka sauce 7.1 well done.....6.8 plain....Needs a little little more sauce

One of the absolute best bar pies in NJ! Perfect cheese sauce ratio on an amazing crust with the perfect crunch factor. Zero flop!

This pizza was everything I love in a bar pie. Look at that crisp look at it! Fantastic taste cheese gave you that bite, a touch of grease from that well done Boi. Sauce and cheese on point together with a flaky crust with an interesting leopard pattern, buttery almost taste leaving that classic Char on my fingers. Even better place great people inside this place is a fucking spot!

Sauce and cheese was great. Crust was very thin as expected. Undercarriage was good. Super flop and zero stability. Not a travel pie but a solid bar pie.

Very thin crust but wasn't as flaky or crispy as I thought it would have been. Almost a little too chewy for a thin crust. Flopped a lot. Good pizza. Not great.
