While in the neighborhood, we tried Famous Pizza, a busy establishment for many decades. Their Greek gyro is one of the best ever, no cheap filler (french fries) and plenty of tasty meat and tzikki sauce, came with bag of chips for $.50. My fiance tried the spaghetti with bread and salad, same price. Yum! Generous servings and fun to... More

Just moved to the neighborhood and found this place. Good but not great pizza, served quick for lunch, premade then with toppings added. New York pizza, decent crust. This place is a hole in the wall, nothing fancy ambiance wise, but if you know that and want a quick bite with some passable pizza this is the place. Service it... More

They don't make Italian pizza, but it is the best Greek pizza I have ever had. The topping are pretty standard, but if crust is your thing, then the crust is the best!

Famous pizza is pretty good. They have typical NY pizza but their prices are pretty high for what you get. The slices are smaller than most places and the crust is a little thick for my taste. The service isn't great either. I've had worse pizza in this town.

Good, not great pizza. Cool store, good prices, nice people. What else is there to say. Worth the stop. Seems to have a lot of people raving about it so I will give it another shot.

The pizza here is delicious, but it's definitely not the cheapest of pizza places considering the mediocre atmosphere and rude service. The guy who makes the pizza is usually pretty nice, but the owners are always very rude and they charge extra for everything (even for a pizza box!). My boyfriend recently tried calling for delivery and got hung up... More

By far the best pizza in town!! Very NY style, even seedy feeling inside. Don't be fooled though -- it's worth it!

They write "God bless America" on their pizza boxes.
