Just ok, but not as good as the good old days. Still a wait, but in my opinion not really worth a long wait.

Burnt pie with the blandest sauce and crust and sliced in bizarre, uneven wedges (do NOT eat here if you have OCD) and the most over-it/rudest hostess ever. Never before, ever again.

The Pizza at Pepe's was very good, but not the incredible experience I had heard others rave about. We had he house speciality which I think was a clam pizza, and I learned I like a traditional pizza much better.

Rated one of the best pizza places in the country. Be prepared to wait. The line on a slow day is an hour wait. Friends of mine have waited as long as two hours to get in.
