Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza
Ranked #37 of 93 Restaurants in Fair Lawn
Cuisines: Italian
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 26, 2014

There's an outside bar facing the highway that is very crowded along with small tables to seat some of the waiting guest. Once inside the restaurant is very crowded and loud, with many servers running around. There are multiple TV's around the entire restaurant along with pictures and sports memorabilia hanging from every wall, mostly of Dan Marino. We had for appetizers the wings and the Anthony’s Classic Italian Salad which were good but I've had better. For the main course we had the Roasted Cauliflower Pizza and the Broccoli Rabe & Sausage pies. Both were good but I wasn't overwhelmed with either the taste or their claim of a "Well Done Pizza". I would categorize this establishment as Sports Bar hangout that serves Pizza, once we walked out we realized just how loud the place was, probably would not frequent this establishment.

Just visited this place and I got to say that food is average and prices a bit high for the food. Service is ok. Like I said is just another pizza joint with tv's around. Drinks could be priced better but is what it is

First time at this chain and other than the pricing its just ok. Not a fan of the draconian well done pizza regulation imposed as the doneness of the pizza has never been a question at any other pizza place I have ever visited. The bottom of the pie is cooked nicely but the outer crust is like a hard pretzel, while some may enjoy this others don't so why not cook to order? Sauce is bright and seasoned well, the cheese tasty and in proper proportion however the end product is overcooked and pricy.

What the draw for me was the offer "Every Monday and Tuesday "Coal Fired & Craft Beer," featuring half off craft beers from local brewers." That's a decent offer as all draft beers are 6 or 7 dollars so three bucks for a quality cold brew (I believe the glasses are 10 oz.) is fair considering the selection. The small mushroom topped pizza we ordered was $14.98 and a questionable value considering its 12 inch size.

I moved on trying the wings that were highly recommended by our bartender (corporate trainer) who provided a sample of two wings free of charge that are marinated in Italian seasoning, coal fired in the pizza oven and served with way too many undercooked caramelized onions, we enjoyed them but for ten wings it was over ten bucks and they're not that big. Next up was the Marino Eggplant breaded and fried topped with sauce and grated pecorino finished in the oven, I asked for mozzarella on top and was obliged. The eggplant came with two wedges of decent focaccia, what brought it to the next level was its low moisture content and a nice touch with the seasoning. Anthonys sister was in earshot during this soft opening and overheard us about the cheese agreeing that she also prefered the melted mozzarella aka eggplant parm style while the manager said the cheese masked the great flavor, again to each his own.

No food specials for happy hour just deals on booze, three stars.

This place has recently opened. On a Sunday night the tables were full so they provided a seat at the bar. It took about 10 minutes just to get a menu as the bartenders were busy chatting up some customers The food was ok but priced slightly high based on the quality and quantity It has an tiny parking lot which will no doubt become jammed when the adjacent restaurants open up. I ended up picking up dessert at the nearby Starbucks which had much quicker service

Food is average. Lots of buzz, limited seating, and long waiting times for service. It's best to sit at the bar if you can.
