Red Front COB - Cheese On Bottom - trust me

Red Front is a Troy institution! They've been around for at least 40 years and make the best pizza. The chicken parm and delmonico steaks are also excellent. Good prices and friendly staff - decent beer selection.

My husband and I lived on 2nd St for a year and we ate at the Red Front numerous time, not only because it was a short walk but because their pizza is amazing. We would only need to get a small and we would usually have 2 slices left over. They had Ommegang Rare Vos beer on tap which... More

I was absolutely appalled by the service and lack of interpersonal skills and conflict resolution by our waitress and 'owner' of the resturant when there was a discrepancy with our bill (we were overcharged). As a big group of friends who regularly go into the resturant and spend 100+ dollars every visit, being treated the way we were was surprising... More

The food you order will arrive cold and burnt. The owner is rude and refused to pay me back for the food that did not arrive in my order. DO NOT EAT HERE!!!

Red Front Restaurant & Tavern is a popular local gathering point and Italian eatery in Troy. It's packed on Friday and Saturday night. Plan on arriving early or you will be waiting a good 30-45 minutes to get a table. The pizza is traditional NY style and is quite good. The decor is quite dated but the staff is quite... More

Mi wife hung out at the Red Front when she was a teenager so when we returned to Troy for her class reunion, a group decided to go to the Red Front. The pizza was good but not great. Our friends tried the cob pizza where they put the cheese under the tomato sauce and said it was good. The... More

This was our first trip to the Red Front - we went for pizza. We had good service, the wait staff was friendly and the prices were reasonable. We were pleasantly surprised at how good the pizza tasted. We had peppers and pepperoni on our pizza. We will definitely be going back again...

So pissed just ordered me a Philly cheesesteak sub from red front. Even went and picked it up. I've had three in the past and they were so good my mouth watered. This one sucked, hardly no meat. Cheese was skimpy. And the bread was so damn soggy and soft. Not hot and toasted like all the other ones I... More
