“BEST CRUST & SAUCE!: Please Move to Farragut !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

This place is a hidden gem in the Knoxville area. Let's just set this straight. THIS IS THE BEST CRUST AND SAUCE IN THE KNOXVILLE AREA!!!!! The place is a long trip from Lenoir City but is worth the trip. Garlic Rolls-Yum!!! Beer Buckets Specials-Yeah! Toppings are fresh and not too heavy or skimpy. If this pizza is not as close to real NY without going there, then you obviously must be from New Jersey!

“Great Ny Style Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013 via mobile

Super Pizza. Grew Up In New York....Most Pizza In Knoxville Is Made Using A ConveYer Belt Oven.....Doesn't Have The Crisp Crust. This Did. Is Well Hidden So Repeat Customers Must Be What Keeps It Going.

“Best NY Pizza in TN.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2013

Went here several times, I'm from N.Y. so good pizza is hard to find. This is the real deal, takes longer to cook so a little bit of a wait but that's because they don't make any ahead of time. Brought my N.Y. friends here they loved it too.

“Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2013

I'm from New Yok so good pizza is hard to find. We tried this place a while back and its fantastic. It really is as close to NY pizza as you can get, we ate it there the first time. We picked it up the second time, if you live a distance I'd say don't pick it up the bottom gets soggy sitting in the box too long, but still hard to beat the taste. Bon Apetite'

“Best NY Pizza in Knoxville!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2012

We had the pleasure of going for lunch today. We tried the garlic knots (a must have)....A pepperoni pizza, and a canoli. The service was excellent....Also, the pizza was amazing! It is the best pizza since we came back from NYC. I can't recommend this place enough. We drove almost 45 mins to get there and it was definitely worth the trip! We will be visiting often!
