It feels like an authentic New York Italian kitchen. All family operated. We've been going for years and love the food. It's nice to order and watch it be prepared. Easy parking. Much more like a deli experience.

We have only visited J&S one time but it was the best pizza establishment we have visited in the past 12 months. We don't go out for pizza but when we do this will be our number one establishment.

Giant NY style pizza at its finest. I love NY pizza and had not found a place in Apex I really enjoyed until a friend told me about this place. It's not very noticeable, but definitely worth trying if you like NY pizza. I do not like chain pizza places like Dominos etc, so this is my go-to place in... More

While visiting my parents in Apex, I occasionally get away for lunch. A place with good East Coast pizza is the New York Pizza restaurant in Apex. Lots of variety in the type and style of pizzas and additional Italian fare as well. The food is good, the restaurant clean, the service friendly and quick, a good combination for a... More

I read all the positive reviews and thought I'd give this place a try. Let me admit I really don't know what NY pizza is supposed to be, but I picked up their pepperoni and it was the geasiest pizza I've ever had. It took multiple paper towels to absorb excess grease from just one slice. Also, the cheese was... More

Stopped for an early dinner at the Fuquay Varina location. They have changed from paper plates to hard plastic, so you can use a knife and fork now! Okay!! So, the food was alright, but unremarkable. However, one thing bothered me: In the "kitchen" where the pizza ovens are and the food is prepared for serving, there were several people... More

Read a couple other reviews, all good, and very accurate! Not much to look at, but if you're going for flavor & filling, we left very pleased that my son wants to revisit. Too bad we're from PA, otherwise this would be catapulted to our favorite pizza joint.

Okay, two things you should know before reading my review of this place - # I am an Italian girl from the Bronx, New York and #2 - my first meal was a pizza - okay so the second one isn't really true but I think I have eaten more pizza in my life than anything else and I have... More

Not much to look at - Carry-Out Pizza and small Italian menu - You can't go wrong! Everything is great! Old Italian family - the absolute best! Don't expect streamlined automated ordering - Expect GREAT FOOD!!

We got the "garbage pizza" and it was one of the best pizza's that we've ever had! That being said, this is not really a restaurant - it's a take-out pizza place with a few tables. We live 30 miles away, so went here because we were in the area that day and had read to rave reviews. There is... More
