Great Food!

We went here for lunch on a Sunday after an ice/snowstorm, and we were really impressed. The pizza was good, slices were huge, and it was authentic NY pizza. My father in law enjoyed the calzone which was big enough for 3 people. He ate most of it by himself. Great food, good service, we will... read more

If you want good pizza and don't want to travel up North this is the place to go. The Pie is extremely good and stands the test of a 2nd heating as left overs.

Right down to the owners being straight from Italy - accent and all - years of pizzeria in Brooklyn and then moving their business here about 20 years ago, they are the real deal! Family owned and operated - all there of their adult children run the business with their parents (expanded to Fuquay Varina also) and are very friendly... More

This couple are the real deal, and I am sure that once upon a time they made great pies, but 20 years in a local culture of fast food does not provide many foodies or critics. The first time all of my family of 5 felt sick from overly greasy and heavy pizza, loaded with salt. We tossed the leftovers,... More

We've been getting our pizza from J n S for 18 yrs. We love the NY style crust and their toppings, specially the sausage is delicious. I'm fond of their pepperoni pizza and the steak n cheese sub. Messy, but delicious.

Apex is not very big when selecting a home cooked ( non-franchise ) restaurant . This one fits the bill on all quality, quantity and value . We've been to the other Italian place down the street and this place is better on authenticity and value . The food and pizza are just more tasty / authentic and remind me... More

We've enjoyed pizzas from J&S for 12 years; its family owned, and they make magical pizzas happen in their ovens..... What a perfect place for a real taste of Italy.

This was my local pizza joint when I lived nearby 10 years ago. They still remembered me when I walked in the door. Excellent pizza and italian food. A bit out of the way, but worth finding if you;re hungry for a big meal or just a quick bite. The current location is not the best for eating in. Good... More
