Had a good deal. 2 slices and a pop for $7. Service was blah and pizza was average. Restaurant needed updates.

As a former New Yorker living in pizza-exile in New Mexico, I have been very impressed with JC's New York Pizza Dept ever since it first opened here in ABQ. For someone who lived in Brooklyn for her first 30 years, I complained about the poor quality of pizza in NM for years. I was E aged to test JC's... More

Sometimes a person just wants a good slice of NY style pizza. I love their pizza but be ready to wait - and not because it's crowded. Yes, it is very good but there is no need to take so long. My pizza was served to someone else who complained he had to get back to work. Well Mister suit,... More

Enjoyable outdoor dining in down town. Gluten free crust was one of the best I have had! Panhandlers reaching over the fence were not so great.

We visit family in NYC every year and have tried a wide variety of pizzas there. We have also tried NYC style pizza at numerous other restaurants across the country. This is NOT New York style pizza.
