this is an awesome pizza place located in murray hill just over the railroad tracks from avondale . the decor is eclectic and noisy . lots of people and many walk-ups from the neighborhood . lots of familys enjoying pizza night . and the pizza is simply incredible ! many types from a meat lovers called the t-rex , a supreme stylre even a white pizza . the greek salads make 2 meals each . amd don;t try to pick up your slice and eat it or you will be wearing it . this is deep dish style you eat with a knife and fork . also you can get pizza by the slice which is really nice because i've never been able to eat more than 1 slice at a sitting .
Can be great, or much less than. Make sure you tell them extra crispy so the dough will be cooked through. Toppings are excellent. Friendly staff, but sometimes can be a little forgetful. Huge salads. Your best bet is to call in and then come and eat it there.
Great food, but the service is horrible. All orders are done by hand, lots of room for errors. One person writes the order, has to process all the drinks, and there is only 1 register. I have seen smaller burger joints use 2 registers or have at least 2 people ALWAYS at the counter to take care of customers. The service here is pathetic. No one cares to do a good job and if you wait 30 minutes in line for take out, that is about normal!

This is some of the best pizza I have tasted in town. However, after five visits, the wait and cook staff there leaves alot to be desired. The guy in the big cap covering what I assume is dread locks consistently handles food with his bare hands (without washing) after scratching his head (hat), knocking down boxes from deliveries, or handling the wipe rags. The one time I saw him wash, he dried them on his jeans. Oh and let's not forget when he came to the front counter and was handling cash, then went and started handling the raw pizza dough without washing. There is a tiny little girl with the biggest and loudest voice who lets everyone know about her love life and issues. I have witnessed her rinsing her hands and wiping them on her short cut offs back side and then deliver food to a table. The last time we went, we could not help but overhear the argument she was having about schedules with another girl. They were yelling so loudly, they were the loudest noise in the half-full restaurant and we were on the oposite side of the restaurant from the arguement. Four visits have shown that at least two staff members for each visit use their cell phones while working on food prep or serving. We, your customers, are so sorry to interrupt your busy personal life, but you are at work, so pay attention to the people paying your wages and tips. Tim, the manager, is VERY nice and helpful, but perhaps they should consider hiring people with experience and not those who like to view themselves as stepping out of a GAP ad or a teenage drama TV show. I have seen him listen to a different customer's complaint about the handling of the food and take action, ie. talking to the associate, making them take action, and he really does listen to the customers. Not listen and then forget the issue.
As I said before and now, the best pizza in town, but with the staff and the health issues, I am not sure I will be back.
We have eaten here on several occasions and ordered take out. The pizza is one of the best in town. They have a good beer selection. The kids always have a good time playing with the pizza dough while we wait for dinner. You gotta try it out!
