I am not from NY but someone in the area had recommended this place. I wanted real "New York Style" pizza. I was a little disappointed. It wasn't bad, in fact it tasted pretty good but its not what I had invisioned Net York pizza to be. The kitchen was very busy and there was a steady stream of customers. They looked like mostly locals. I don't think I would go out of my way to go back there but I wouldn't avoid the place either. Not bad for the money. Overall, just so-so.
