My family ate here recently and everyone in our party was please with their dish. We had pizza, lasagna, and calazone. All of it was very good.

Stopped in around 30 minutes before closing, still full from lunch, just ordered a slice of cheese. The crust was paper thin but had a great taste. Cheese and sauce were doable. Not bad for a first visit. Will give it a second chance.

We got two xl pizzas. We had been told how good the crust was by another family member. I kid you not, the plain cheese crust could not be bitten and would have served well as a floor mat in an atv. The other, a white pie with pepperoni, was slightly better, though still unacceptably tough. The toppings, "meh". Perhaps... More

A long time ago, J&S had the best NY Style Pizza in the area (mid-to-late 1990s). Unfortunately, while they may still have amongst the best in the area, that does not necessarily mean it is great pizza. It just means that it is seriously difficult to find really good NY Style Pizza in/near Apex, NC. We've been hearing lots of... More

Best pizza around. Just like in NY. We love the new brand new location. You can eat in beautiful dining room or carry out all your favorite Italian dishes. We love the stuffed pizza with tons of homemade Italian gravy or sauce.

Purchased pizza and wings for the family. Everything was way too salty and even with teenage boys, I threw away pizza for the first time ever.

Anything Italian and New York and that is what you can experience in the J & S New York Style Pizza and Italian REstaurants. True blue Italians - mom and dad started the business long time ago - they are from Cicily - then Brooklyn Silvio and Josephine had same business there but moved their family here to the South...

My wife and I finally had chance to visit the new (and much improved) location for J&S. The food was always great and now it has a much nicer atmosphere. Plan to go here or at least get takeout.

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 definitely come back.

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.
