The pride of pizza slices in Weehawken, NJ. Here to fulfill our hunger desires. We are not worthy.

The fair priced slices here are ENORMOUS. Look at the scaled comparison. One slice did the trick. The cheese and sauce texture/ratio was on point although lacking significant flavor. Crust was descent as well.

This place has been around for a while and has that traditional NJ pizza parlor feel. Godfather memorabilia strewn about and a neat elevated dining area give it some standout appeal. I def dig the atmosphere. Made me nostalgic

The infamous creepy pizza chef outside Romano Pizza on Park Ave. This thing is a Weehawken legend in it’s own right.

Romano Pizza

Definitely one of the less popular spots in “the hawk” I decided to try Romano Pizza on Park Ave while Cousin Mike, Rubencho, and Mike M. ate Chinese next door. I am a softy for a good Hawaiian slice. This is often hard to achieve. However, Romana Pizza did it justice. The diced pineapple gave the slice a perfect subtle sweet taste. They skimped on the ham however. The cheese and sauce were no different than your typical Jersey pizzeria. The crust folded nicely and was thin just how it should be with such toppings. A doughy Hawaiian slice can really be an awful experience. Not too much grease. And it was a reasonable price at $3 a slice.

After our failed attempt at trying Mannino’s on our pizza adventure, we headed to Pizza Pasta in Lodi, NJ on a recommendation from Paul’s mom. She said she remembered it being good back in the day, so we wanted to see if they stood the test of time. I grabbed a ‘roni, Paul and Ryan got grandmas, and Brian got a buffalo chicken. I overall enjoyed my pepperoni, though it wasn’t the best I’ve ever had. For anyone who doesn’t know, the secret to having an awesome pepperoni slice is having them put pepperoni on a plain before they heat it up, a little trick I learned from Drago’s. I can’t remember much about this slice, which can only mean it was pretty average overall. Good pizza, but we had better in Lodi on our last trip. Look for the reviews!

Okay here it is, the last stop from this pizza adventure, Pizza Town in Elmwood Park. Paul had heard good stories about this place from several people from the area, so we were hoping to close out the night on a high note. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be. Up until you taste the pizza, Pizza Town is pretty sick. It opened up in 1958 and looks pretty much what I would expect it to look like were it still 1958. As you can see in the pics, it’s got a really old-school vibe to it, which was sick. There are also tons of pix on Google worth checking out if you’ve never been there for yourself. The pizza was also cheap, I want to say it was $2 a slice but I honestly can’t remember for sure, which is always a plus. Now for the cons. First off, it was freezing inside. The windows aren’t real walls and it was dark out so it wasn’t very fun sitting to wait for our pizza. When it did arrive, it was DARK on the bottom to the point where my fingers were getting black crap on them from touching the crust. Yuck. I am not about that and it definitely took a lot away from the slice. Paul also got a coke and said it tasted like it was FROM 1958. Ooooooooooof. Too bad, because I had high hopes. Pizza Town is open ‘til at least 1am every day though, so if it’s a late night and you just need a slice, it’s probably worth the stop. I have a feeling most of the people who LOVE going here have already hit the clubs earlier that night so they aren’t in the right mindset to be judging pizza. Next time I’m in the area and haven’t already had 3 slices of pizza, I’ll consider giving it another shot. Until then, Pizza Town was a huge disappointment. If nothing else, it’s at least worth stopping by for the ambience, because I will say, it looks fucking awesome.

P.S. I just realized my inside pic SUCKS. Just go here and see for yourself.

The second stop from the last pizza adventure was Heights Pizza in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ. I’m pretty sure Paul has reviewed this spot before (he’s told me about how clutch it is), but I figured everyone would appreciate a second opinion. Walking into Heights Pizza, you aren’t really expecting anything special. It looks like a typical North Jersey pizzeria in just about every way. However, the slices they offer are serious. We grabbed the last three plains they had out (only $1.98 each!) and went outside to sit in the cool Spring night air. Seriously, this slice was so good. As I’m sure you can tell, it was cheese heavy (my JAM) and had just the right amount of sauce underneath. In addition, the crust was juuuust the right amount of doughy, right before it starts tasting bland and shitty. So sick. I don’t want to just dole out 5’s all around, but Heights Pizza definitely deserves it. $2 for a slice this sick is too hard to come by to give it any less.

Two Saturdays ago, Sean and I went into the city to see The Sound of Animals Fighting at Best Buy Theater. As I’m sure you could have guessed, we decided it was mandatory that we stopped for city pizza on our way to the venue. Now I’m not too well-versed in any hot city spots (feel free to recommend some), so I went on good old Google to do some research. Every page I came across seemed to say that if you’re looking for good pizza in Manhattan, then you want to get out of midtown. However, I wasn’t tryna walk all the way downtown or PAY for the subway, so I just picked one of the better reviewed spots in the area, which ended up being Giuseppe’s Pizza on 39th and Lexington. I wasn’t super hungry when we got there since we had already stopped at Wawa and Krispy Kreme en route, but I still decided to get two slices because why not? I don’t get pizza in the city too often and figured I should make the most of my trip. I ordered a buffalo chicken and a plain which cost $6.50 and Sean got a chicken bacon ranch for $4. Pretty pricey, but that’s what you get when you’re in the city. I opened with the buffalo chicken because I didn’t want to be too full on plain to be able to thoroughly enjoy it. In hindsight this was probably a great move, because the buffalo chicken was awesome. There was lots of chicken and buffalo sauce, and it was just overall awesome. I definitely recommend this slice if you ever stop here. It’s exactly what you would expect from a buffalo chicken slice in the city, though I have had better elsewhere. I also sampled Sean’s Chicken Bacon Ranch and it was just as good. They didn’t skimp on the toppings and you could just taste all the bacon and it was great. I was hesitant to get this myself as I noticed there was tomato sauce underneath the cheese which is pretty whack for this kind of slice if you ask me. However, neither of us could taste it so it didn’t end up detracting from the slice in the least. Now a trend I have been starting to notice that continues with Giuseppe’s is that places that have primo specialty slices often have extremely lacking plain slices. I’m not sure why this always seems to be the case, but Giuseppe’s kept up the trend. I wish I had just stuck with one slice, because I was extremely let down by the plain. The sauce was all goopy and while it wasn’t necessarily bad, it just didn’t do anything from me. I expect better from New York City, especially for the price. Overall, Giuseppe’s was above average, but I honestly was expecting more from a decently high rated New York City pizzeria. There are definitely worse, but there are DEFINITELY better.

P.S. Paul and I were talking about this, how NYC are pizzeria lunch trays?!?

Two Fridays ago, I ventured down to the Secaucus area with Brian to go on yet another pizza adventure with Paul and Ryan. We originally had other plans, but PAUL decided to BAIL last minute so we had to settle for pizza. Nah just kidding getting pizza is never settling. Anyway, we started out big with Mr. Bruno’s in Lyndhurst before moving on to Heights Pizza in Hasbrouck Heights. From there we had full intentions of checking out Mannino’s in Moonachie, but they had NO pizza. What kind of pizzeria doesn’t have pizza on a Friday?!? They had one sicilian and something else that looked weird but we were definitely not tryna. This seemed to be the trend of the night, as every place seemed to be pretty light on selection. Even Bruno’s. Seriously weak. Anyway we picked ourselves up and moved on to Pizza Pasta in Lodi before closing with Pizza Town in Elmwood Park. Overall another great trip with a bunch of great slices, so stay tuned for individual reviews, they’re on the way! Oh, and I picked up an OG copy of the first Slipknot CD at FYE. You know you’re jealous.

Reggio’s, Union, New Jersey
If you go to Kean University and you loathe the dining hall’s miserable pizza and long for a decent slice, look no further. 
Reggio’s Pizza on Morris Ave. is bringing da ruckus. They delivered to my dorm a buffalo chicken pie. I did not have napkins so I used my old training manual from the Nike Factory (slave laborers). The cheese melted the buffalo chicken strips into the slice. The crust held strong under the heavy weight of the toppings. It hit the spot. Only complaint was the excessive grease that got everywhere, but I’m willing to look pass that Reggio’s because you were so fuckin’ delicious.
