“Fabulous pizza in Penn Station”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

Must stop in if near Penn Station. Loved the egg plant topped pizza, new topping experience for me. Also offered sandwiches and pasta, but we stuck with the delicious pizza. Generous portions for the price.

“4 stars for pizza and the show”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

This hidden away pizza joint in the Long Island railroad side of Penn Station is a local legend. The pizza is good. Very good.

The back dining room can be quite an experience, especially on nights where there are events upstairs at Madison Square Garden. I have sat next to business people, families and homeless dudes. It is quite a mix. They do have a restroom which is preferrable to the normal Penn Station bathrooms.

All in all it can be quite an experience, but the pizza is worth it.

“The Best Slice, Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Stumbled in a few year's ago, now always make a pilgrimage when in NYC. Best cheese Pizza in NYC, hands down, but not too fussy on some of the obscure toppings. Beer is cheap and good, lots of selection on tap. Staff helpful and friendly, but not overly so. Can't wait to go back. Yeah, the bathroom was a bit scary.

“Worth seeking out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is a fast-food place rather than somewhere for a sit down meal.

Located on the concourse level of Penn station, you have to go into the station from 34th Street and walk along towards the Metro in order to find this place.

Once there, you will find a frankly bewildering array of pizzas all ready to be dished up as individual slices. As with most New York fast food places, they're not prepared for the first-time visitor and expect you to know exactly what you want as soon as to walk through the door.

Unless you're planning of buying a whole pizza to talk out, the easiest way to order is just point at the slice you want, whereupon it will be popped onto a plate and re-heated in the pizza oven while you pay, so you will be good to go in about a minute.

There is seating and self-clear tables, as with other fast food places.

“Great Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2012

Rose's Pizza is a great value! The slices are huge and they have great beers on tap for a fraction of what you would pay elsewhere in NYC. This isn't high class dining but if you are looking for a great value and a good slice of NYC pizza don't miss Roses.
