Service was a bit confused and slow. But, the wings were good, tasty. The gluten free pizza was standard and overpriced compared to the usual pizza as most of these places punish gluten free customers with higher prices. i have to say for a bar, pizza place though their bathrooms were kept tidy and clean on a friday night which...

Stopped in for a quick bite and we weren't disappointed. Empire Pizza is bigger than it looks from the outside, with a bar and more tables in the back. We would definitely come back again.

The pizza is good and at a reasonable price. My only complaint is the customer service by the person taking your order. I told her I wanted 2 slices and she rung me up for 3. I told her I only wanted 2 and her response was "Well I repeated your order twice". She did repeat it by she mumbled... More

Just off 6th Ave on Congress, this seemily small place actually has a full bar in back. 6 patio tables out front. Expect to wait 20 minutes for any of their tasty pies. They also have a few Italian selections. The cheese pizza was hot, gooey and very tasty.

Pizza was great! The bar on the other had was very limited and did not carry the type of Gin I like. I say, go for the food and not the drinks.

This place has a few high top tables in the bar and a couple outside, but this is really a take out place unless you just want to have a slice or salad in the bar. Very friendly staff and excellent pizza!

These guys get it! Awesomely busy, yet friendly and quick to serve you the best New York pizza in Arizona. Oh, and a great selection of beer and other adult beverages (if you like that sort of thing) to wash it down with. Simply wonderful pie!

Had pizza and beer at this restaurant on a Friday night. It was quite busy and we were lucky to get a seat. There was a local football game that night which I am sure contributed to this. There was only only one person who was staffing the bar. She was quite busy and could have used some help. Back... More
