Pinto's in Hackensack

legsdiamond12 | Jul 15, 2012 08:48 AM

Does anyone remember Pinto's Restaurant in Hackensack? It used to be in a white building on Greene Street, and when I lived in Teaneck as a tot (early 1960's), it's where my family always got their pizza. Later on, when we moved out of Teaneck, we'd still stop by if we were in the area, and I thought their Italian food (and pizza especially) was delicious, although I probably wasn't very discriminating when it came to Italian food (which I uniformly loved). In the mid 80's, the restaurant still existed, and I stopped there as a young adult after not having been for several years, and found it not all that great. Not sure if that meant the quality had deteriorated over the years, or whether my own sense of taste had become more refined. In any event, I'm pretty sure it no longer exists. A shame. I can still sometimes have visions of its pizza, with those circular pieces of sausage floating amongst the bubbling cheese and sauce (not sure if the visions are justified, or I'm looking back at the past through the proverbial rose colored glasses).
