I was passing through Salem and I had time for a quick slice of pizza at Essex's N.Y. Deli and Pizza. Located in Museum Place, the downtown mall in Salem, Essex's N.Y. Deli and Pizza looks a bit dated. However, do not let that look fool you, the pizza is fantastic!! The service was also solid. Despite closing in a few minutes, the staff gladly prepared me and my buddy's orders and waited for us to finish with no rush what so ever. That is really appreciated!! The crust of the pizza was fresh, not too doughy and cooked perfectly. The sauce was tangy, sweet and the slice had the right amount of sauce on the pie. My pepperoni slice as well as my Mac and cheese/sausage slice were excellent. There was plenty of taste, cheese and sauce! The prices were more than reasonable. Perfecto!! Pizza is supposed to be simple and Essex's N.Y. Deli and Pizza simply does pizza right. I would recommend a stop at this pizza restaurant for a slice while in Salem!
