The pizza here was delicious, the service could have been better, the guys worked very very fast and the shop was cramped, but I suppose a pizza shop in new York is going to be that way, still the guy who served us was a...More

We went on vacation last Fall for our son's Fall Break and ended up in NYC. We were scrambling to find a place to eat before our shuttle took us back to our hotel in Jersey. All the restaurants were so expensive and we couldn't...More

Stopped here late one night after a long day in NYC. This place was busy to say it was late and quite rightly so; the pizza is great. Ordered the biggest sized pepperoni for 3 of us to share which was approx $30. Would highly...More

Was just a bit disappointed after having a slice from Majestic. It was a large slice but the ratio of sauce to cheese was a bit heavier on the cheese. My own preference is half and half. Still acceptable though.

Needed food @ 10pm mid-town, and we came across Famous Original Ray's. Good slices of pizza, price was OK. Established 1964, so must be good.

Nothing spectacular or out of this world, but it was a good piece of pizza. It has a small place in rear of the restaurant to sit and relax. On a hot day, a piece of pizza and a Diet Coke tasted great!

Huge slice of pizza with black olives, mushrooms and pepperoni for $6. I found that quite reasonable for NYC. My son had a huge piece with chicken and ranch for the same price. Neither of us was able to finish the slice since it was...More

$6.00 for a slice of pepperoni and sausage is high even for NYC. Why can’t I just get a slice of pepperoni for $4.00? It’s never available. You can get cheese for $3.25 or specialty slices for $6.00. One topping slices are never available. Very...More

I definitely don't think so. They are not that kind of guys who think about intolerances. But I'm not 100% sure.
