“Best Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2008

A friend had a "welcome to New York" party here. It is a very nice location and we were in the front room. The pizza is delicious and I love their crust. It is in a great location, right across from the spamalot theater and very close to Times Square. If you feel like pizza and you are in the revitalized Times Square, then this is the place to go.

“Pizza, Cold Beer and Stained Glass do go together”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2008

Being a big fan of John's in the Village I was excited to try the Times Square location. It is vastly different, but the quality of food is equally as good. Located in a restored tabernacle, the atmosphere is top notch. There is a small bar in the front to wait for your name to be called. They give you a number and then display it on a digital board, a smart idea for such a busy place.

We enjoyed a nice cold Brooklyn Lager on tap, but they had other nice choices besides 'Bud'. We were seated on the top floor with a nice view of the entire restaurant and the pizza was delish (as always).

This area being a very expensive locale to eat, I would put John's on your radar screen.
