Phil's Pizzeria in Montvale, NJ

I am a pizza fanatic and Phil's on Chestnut Ridge Road in Montvale next to the Grand Union is where I got my start over 30 years ago. Back then it was a thin, blistered crust, tangy tomato, and creamy mozzarella topped with a dusting of oregano. When you folded a slice, the orange-tinted grease dripped out the back and down your arm. Anybody remember it or even still go there? If so, is it still what I remember? I think the person slinging the pies back then was a little italian guy named Jerry. I live in LA now, and pizza deprivation has made me weepy and nostalgic. Any thoughts, memories, or info would be appreciated.
