I Need To Get This Off My Chest RE: JOE'S PIZZA

Josh | Oct 23, 2004 01:27 AM

I'm just fed up. I pass by Joe's every day to find tens of people lining up outside for this stuff, to see Zagat awards of distinction, to see a write-up from every culinary magazine.

The pizza sucks!!! It is horrible. I'd even venture to Ray's up the block before I go back to Joe's. I've been there five times. Five times I've gotten a slice so thin and overcooked that it completely broke when folded. Not just at the crust line, but the entire pizza.

The sauce they get is the same sauce used in every other pizza store, as is the cheese. Why everyone keeps singing the praises of this place is beyond me.

For decent pizza in Greenwich Village, head to Pizza Box or Bleecker Street Pizza. Stay away from Joe's, The Pizzeria, and Pizza Booth. Am I missing any?
