Everything was so delicious! I was a little hesitant about the clam pizza but it was so good. Go with a few friends so you can try more flavors!

On a night where lines to get in any pizza joint were long and no one was even answering the phone for take out orders (12-26), Frank’s filled the bill. We were hungry and our order was ready within 15 min. So, really can’t complain....More

I am no fan of wood-burned pizza. Nor do I care for thin crust pizza. And yet, Pepe has made me a believer! The laws of physics plainly state that two things cannot occupy the same space, so I'm not sure how they fit all...More

Wonderful place. Plan on waiting, since it’s very popular. Wait staff is super efficient. Pizza is made in wood burning oven, so has distinct flavor. A medium size is more than enough for two people! Would definitely go back.

This is some of the BEST pizza you will ever taste!!! The wait may be long, but the pizza is well worth it. I'm happy that they have salad for you to order while you wait for your pizza.
