Been meaning to try this place for a long time, ever since John Stewart called out Dave Portnoy to try it. Pizza was good. Cheese was sauce were the highlights. Crust was very dry. I am happy I tried it but this is not a high 7s pizza. Not a traditional pizza so hard for me to score it on my scale. You get more of the taste of the bread in ebery bite then anything else. Cheese and sauce are gentle and subtle. Cooked well. I guess i would go 7.1 for freshness, uniqueness, and the sauce. I've had better 7.1s than this but the mix of the 3 puts it there for me. Pick up or delivery only. Outdoor seating available but you are sitting on the curb off a parking lot. Again, worth a try but not a must have in my opinion.

Not a rookie score. A real One. Really solid pizza. Thought I wanted just a slice. Turned into 5 slices. Crust was great.

Much thinner than it looks. Good balance of sauce and cheese; solid flavor. While there is a noticeable crunch, the crust is a bit dry around the edges.

A good solid Jersey ‘rectangle’ pizza (side note, 20 min from my home yet I’ve never been here). Favorite part was the sauce, good undercarriage with a the right amount of cheese.

On the fence with 7.9/8.1. Ultimately the undercarriage pushed it over into the 8s

Good flavor but a bit floppy. Little greasy. Good looking undercarriage. Cool guys too

This pizza hit all the right notes!! The only issue I had was it was a little oily for my liking. Other than that crust was good not shy with the cheese and perfect amount of doe. Undercarriage perfectly charred. Nice job!!!!

This is really good pizza. It’s not brick oven, but it has that brick oven taste. The crust had great flavor and no flop. The cheese had only a little grease but the right amount of pull and salt. A great sauce to cheese ratio and the sauce had a just enough sweetness and seasoning. This was just really good, above average pizza. I definitely recommend and will repeat when in the area.

Very greasy. Drip drip drip. Also had a large amount of flour where I could see it on the bottom and on the crust as well as tasting it.

This pizza should be eaten on the picnic benches behind field 2 after a little league game. A childhood classic

Solid slice. Good cheese. Sauce could use more tang. Good crisp. Nice size slice

NJ square pie. Nothing to write home about but I’ll still eat 5 slices.

No flop, crust is awesomely well done. A little too much cheese for my preference (but for cheese lovers it might just be that sweet spot). The sauce has the salty components down, just lacking on the sweet, was not disappointed.

The crust is very hard which took me by surprise. The looks of it have everything of a great pizza but I’m not too impressed. Pizza is pizza and I love pizza. But this one is one to forget. 6.5
