“Great NY Slice of Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

Truly a NY experience. This is one of the pizza joints that is on a tour of the best pizza places in NY. It is not a sit down place where you order a full pie. Its a small shop where you are lucky to get one of the stools to sit at, or 1 of 2 tables outside. Order a slice of the pizza, cheese only, they have thin crust and a square slice. Order both its cheap, and enjoy. Both are super tasty. This is a quick bite and then off to your next stop. Good for a refueling while you are out walking and shopping.

“Good slice, nothing major”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

We went to see was all the hype was about, as we had read all the good reviews. First off, the place is very small, no seating aside from a counter. But we knew that. Secondly, the guy behind the counter couldn't care less about me as a customer, and almost didn't say a word , just nodding. But that didn't matter as long as the pizza was good.

The crust and dough was Ok and had a nice crunchy texture, but the topping we had (pepperoni) was some of the most boring and bland pepperoni I have ever eaten. Looked like a cheap topping bought in a giant box from a warehouse. Didn't feel or taste like a quality ingredient. Cheese and sauce was alright.

If I didn't knew the place was very famous, I wouldn't have stepped in. I'll probably give it a try again next time, but not impressed the first time.

The slice was cheap though , and a good decent size!

“Simply delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

Can't beat thin crust pizza with simple toppings, hot and freshly made.
Great for casual slice or three after a morning exploring the West Village. You can stand at one of the tables or find a spot in the small nearby park.

If you have any room left, suggest you go to the Popbar (almost next door) for dessert afterwards.

“Best Pizza in NYC.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

The famous Joes pizza! Seen in Spider-Man. Must visit! Get the pepperoni slice. About 3$ a slice. After the pizza take a walk around Greenwich village! Have a look on the right hand wall and look at the famous people who have eaten in there! Enjoy.

“Great NY slice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Joe's is an institution in the village, even though this is not their original location (They lost the lease on the original shop on the corner) Anyway, I've been coming here since college 20 years ago, and nothing has changed, save for the pizza tours that come in every day around noon. Save yourself the trouble and get two slices and a glass bottle of Coke and enjoy! If you can, try and get the pie out of the oven, if not no worries, the pizza does not sit for very long. Can't testify as to the other slices (white, siciian, etc).
