This is the best pizza in the area. It's small so it's pretty much carry out only but there are a couple places to sit inside. I've had pizza from all over and this is by far one of the best if not the best. Once you've had Sal's you won't be able to enjoy chain store pizza again.

I was looking for a more authentic style pizza place rather than all these chain pizza places. The pizza's we ordered were very good. The crust was thin and had a nice flavor. Will definitely be back.

Coming from the North it was hard to find good pizza! We love this place! Food is always good and it is real NY style pizza! We have tried the pasta and other items and we have enjoyed everything! Easy location and close to home.

Reminds of NY style pizza, straight outta Philly. Lol. Great pizza, service. Small, only a few seats. But worth the trip from Cowpens. The white with tomatoes (has Ricotta) is awesome.

My first Tripadvisor review. Sal's pizza and owner are the real deal. I had to feed a lot of hungry techs while training at a local hotel. They made GREAT subs AND pizza (to my surprise and delight). They even took care to cut subs in half so people could mix and match. Everyone loved it. I'll be back! Thanks... More

I was looking for great pizza in the area and the reviews of Sal's led me to try it. While I was hoping for something as good as Tony's Pizza based on the reviews (but much closer to me) the pizza just didn't live up to the hype. It was good, tasty cheese and sauce, but it was the crust... More

What can I say. This is an authentic New York eatery. Sal and his team make the best food you could ever hope to have. Get some! Shove it in by the fist full and then order more! Do it now!

Sal's is not a huge business and caters to a majority of their orders being take out. Since my first experience with Sal's pizza, it immediately became the pizza standard that all other pizza had to measure to and since that first bite, no other pizza has even come close. And oh may goodness the baked ziti with meat is... More

My husband and I discovered this place a few years ago when we moved to Gastonia and immediately loved it! Now that we live closer we order at least once a month for carry out. Sal is always there and ALWAYS friendly. The pizza is fantastic and always tastes fresh. The crust is amazing! One of the best things about... More
