“Delicious New York slices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

Hands down, this is my favorite slice place in New York. Everytime I'm in town, it's one of my first stops, and I always try to stop one last time before I head to the airport. The slices are thin and crispy, with a balanced sauce that's just a little sweet, and the perfect amount of toppings. Just as a warning: It's a small space with mostly counter seating - there are 2 standup tables in the center and three counters along the wall with stools. So if you have a large group, plan accordingly.

Another great thing about Joe's is the location. It's right around the corner from the West 4th Street subway stop, and also right by Bleecker Street, which is full of awesome restaurants and food shops. I like to graze my way through the neighborhood - slice at Joe's, then a gelato pop or macaron, some cheese from Murray's, etc.

“Good Pizza!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

The shop is little and you just walk in and order. Hubby and I took our slices out to the little park across the street and ate. It was hot and delicious! Prices were great and eating it in the park was perfect. Hubby even went back for another slice! We headed over to Molly's Cupcakes for dessert... a perfect night!

“Oh Joe's!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

The best pizza I've ever had!!! Started with one slice and had to go back for another and even more the next night. The pizza is not too thick and the price can't be beat, 2.75 for a slice of cheese.

“Best NYC street slice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Infinite number of pizza joints in NYC so there is tremendous competition but there's reason why there is always a line at Joe's. The true test in comparing pizza is to try a plain slice, nothing on it. Easier to compare dough, sauce, cheese. Joe's has got it right, tasty dough at the right crispy thickness and tangy tomato sauce. If you want a real treat go for the more expensive slice with fresh mozzarella.
