Maxie's Pizza---Taylor (Old Forge)

Stan | | Nov 17, 2003 12:51 PM

For me, Old Forge Pizza IS Main Street/Ave.(starting with Gabello's in nearby Duryea, then Ghigiarelli's, Revello's, Arcaro and Genell, a one-block detour to Salerno's, Anthony's and Arcaro's atop Taylor Hill just before the Scranton line).

That's probably why it's taken me that long to find Maxie's (on the other end of town at Keyser Ave. near the Taylor/Old Forge line). I came across an old post way below from someone who recalled it fondly and wondered whether it still exists. Well, yes it does! And it's wonderful! So from now on, unless it was a fluke (doubtful), Maxie's deserves a slot in any serious Old Forge Pizza discussion.

We ordered "a tray" of 12 ($9) to go. These are thick, crusty slices---heavier in texture (more like Victory Pig or Pizza Perfect, but a bigger back crust and far less greasy) than your typical Old Forge Pizza. Cheese is some kind of American/Monterey Jack blend and sits atop (the best part) a nice chunky tomatoey sauce that often oozes out with each bite.

I'm always excited when I can add a new pizza to my list...and Maxie's goes into "regular rotation"!!!
