Donato's is owned by McDonald's. Donato's founder Jim Grote sold the company to McDonald's a few years ago, but he still runs it.

        Forgot to add to the quote. Don't even talk to me about East of Chicago pizza in Ohio.

        Sure, I LOVE Saltine crust with Chef Boyardee sauce.

        Go to Colony, Pepe's, Modern, Luigi's--all in Southern CT. Then tell me about pizza.

          I've been to Pepe's and stand by the white clam being the all time champion. But I have never heard about Luigi's. Do tell about this restuarant. Is it worth a switch the next time I go through CT? There was another topic in the Miscellaneous forum about how far you would drive, and I forgot to site Pepe's. I have driven from NJ to New Haven just to have the white clam pie. Is Luigi's just as good?

            In NYC, Lombardi's on Spring St and John's on Bleecker St
            In Brooklyn, Patsy Grimaldi's on Old Fulton and Totonno's in Coney Island...BTW, Lombardi's started it all with the first pizzeria in the U.S. opened in 1905...Totonno, Patsy and John all apprenticed under him...

              Dumpy but good-old Little Italy in a strip shopping center in St. Pete, FL. Big, salty, cheesy pies and killer Stromboli.

                Almost any Brooklyn Pizza is good - huge greasy slices - it is a genre to itself. Cool to see Lenny's Pizza on 86th St. mentioned - it was the pizzaria at the beginning of "Saturday Night Fever"!

                I was thrilled to see CheeseWit mention HiWay Pizza in State College PA. That was my ORIGINAL pizza, and the standard by which I judge all others (grew up there.) Square slices, somewhat thick crust, just really good!

                The Ray's Pizza on 11th St. and 6th Ave. in Manhattan is the REAL one - beware of many, many imitators. Good stuff.

                Grotto Pizza in Delaware, especially in Rehoboth Beach, is reliably excellent. Although they are somewhat chintzy with their toppings.

                But my all time favorite is Bertucci's Brick Oven Pizza. I know, I know, it's a chain -- but the thin crispy crust, roasted tomato sauce, fresh basil, and balls (not grated) of fresh mozzarella get me every time.

                  Over here in Jersey, I can say that so far I like Masso's pizza the best. Masso's has a deli on one side, the pizza, roast pork, steak sandwiches, etc., on the other side with inside seating (nothing fancy; "luncheonette-ish"), and, in a separate building, a custard and water ice stand with outside tables. It's in historic Gibbsboro, NJ, on beautiful Route 561, across from where they park the school buses.






                  Shayna's_Mom:
                  Masso's sounds interesting. I would love to try some. I don't know the area very well, though. Could you give me directions from Springdale Ave, heading south? I would definitely like to go there soon!



                  I'm sorry for not getting back to you sooner. To Masso's: Just take Springdale Road south till you reach Route 561 (also known as Haddonfield-Berlin Road, also known as Berlin Road, also known as Lakeview Drive or whatever they renamed it). Get in the left turn lane. You'll see a Fleet Bank on your left when you're getting into that lane. After you turn left on 561, you'll be passing a shopping center on your right with an Acme in it, and also you will see the marquee for the Ritz Theatre. Keep going and it won't be long at all. When you see that split-off in the road with the Shell station, make sure you just stay on 561 and the Shell Station should remain on your right. Pass the American Legion post (or is that a VFW?) and you should see Masso's coming right up on the right, after the cricket field. It's a neighborhood kind of place, so come as you are. If you need a menu I can try to stop by this weekend and grab one & scan it to you. Let me know!

                      In Baltimore, my favorite place is Matthew's pizza on Eastern Ave. in Highlandtown. It's been around since the 40's and it hasn't changed. Agree with the other posters on Pepe's in New Haven, Geno's East in Chicago. Had a bad experience at Lombardi's in NYC. The service was rushed and the pizza was cold.

                        Well, if any of you ever come to Waco...go to Mazzio's. It's the best we've found here. Anyone from Harrisburg,PA? I have a question for you.

                          I'm making a list of all these places and if I ever get to travel to any of em', i'm stoppin'!

                          Here in Minnesota, pizza is not the best, at least I haven't found "to die for" pizza like in Chicago or New York.

                          Frankie Brocolli has a slice of new york place in Hermosa beach, CA. It is really good pizza.You could get it by the slice so I think that's the name of the place, but I'm not sure. (short term memory loss, I lived there in 1997)
                          Otherwise, if anyone has had a good pioe in Minneapolis, let me know. I've done most all of them in St. Paul.
                          BTW, even though Punch, the Napolitan wood fired pizza place in St Paul is very very good, I guess when I think of pizza, i'm thinking traditional red sauce w/ cheese.

                            Look up my post on Sammy's Pizza. They are all over Minnesotta and a few other nearby states. I am from Brooklyn, NY and I KNOW pizza. They are very good and are worth a road-trip.



                            I wish there was a Sammy's near me. I went to one in Winona. Is 100 miles too much to travel for a good pizza? There may be a Sammy's closer to you.

                                  We live in Colorado now and are having a hard time finding a "good" pizza. So far the only ones that we have come up with are Beaujo's Pizza, which has several locations but the one we like the best is in Idaho Springs. Here in the town the closest thing to a good pizza is Granelli's Pizza (the owner originates from the Southside of Chicago.

                                  Chicago is the place for pizza. We love JC's Pub in Crestwood for their Garden Pizza with lots of ingredients and the thinnest of crusts. Also, Traverso's in Orland Park (Far South Suburbs) great pizza with a bottle of Ruffino Chianti.

                                  Going back in the past I remember pizza at Giovanni's which was the best pizza. The grease just sat on the top but the flavor was the best and so were the seasonings. Also, Nino's Pizza and of course Chucks Pizza (which brings back a lot memories) There are just too many great pizza places to mentions. But Chicago is the place for pizza along with beef sandwiches and great hot dogs......

                                    The Chicken Caesar Salad pizza from Romeo’s in Austin.
                                    The “Blondie” pizza from Spaghetti Western in Houston.

                                    Is anybody here from Dallas? Wondering if anyone has tried Pappas Pizza there. They used to have two Pappamia’s in Houston but they both closed. They had marvelous pizza there. I was wondering how their new pizza place is.

                                      It USED to be Teatro Pizza on West 44th Street in NYC before they abruptly closed this year. In my neck of the woods, it's Pizza Paradiso either on Dupont Circle or in the Georgetown section both in Washington, D.C.

                                        It sounds familiar. I think I've probably passed it many times when I'm in the KOP area.
                                        I'm trying to remember where exactly it is.
                                        Cheesewit, is this the place you're referring to. What makes it so good, and I'm guessing this means giving it a try!

                                          We have a Donato's by me that just opened up not too long ago. I have never tried it. Just never had the urge to do so.
                                          That's weird that it's owned by McDonald's

                                            Not long ago I heard that Mickey-D's sold the Donato's concept back to its original owner, Jim Grote.

                                              Talk about confusing. Any ideas on why they sold it back to the original owner?

                                                My only guess is that the people at McDonald's thought that Donato's wouldn't be as profitable as their Boston Market and Chipotle brands, Dana. Then again, I think Donato's has a rosier future than Boston Market.

                                                  The pizza landscape in Lexington was deplorable until Joe Bologna moved here from Detroit. Before Joe arrived, most people here had never had a really good pizza. Joe Bologna's Restaurant - housed in a former synagogue - still turns out terrific pies.

                                                    It sounds familiar. I think I've probably passed it many times when I'm in the KOP area.
                                                    I'm trying to remember where exactly it is.
                                                    Cheesewit, is this the place you're referring to. What makes it so good, and I'm guessing this means giving it a try!


                                                    DanaJ: Peace a Pizza is in Ardmore, Rosemont, Wayne, and other locations including KofP. I like the crust and I'm wild about their wild toppings. You have got to try some of the chicken based toppings including bbq, ranch chicken, buffalo chicken with bleu cheese, etc.
                                                    Try it, you'll like it!

                                                      Thanks cheezewit for the info!
                                                      I'm a vegetarian so I won't be trying the chicken pizza. If we do go I'll let my SO know, since he really likes chicken.

                                                      I know I've seen it before recently, but it's one of those deals where I can't rememeber exactly where it was.

                                                      I'll check out the website:)

                                                        Oh okay now that I checked out the website, I remember where I saw the one location. It was on Gulph Rd in KOP.
                                                        I had no idea there was one in Exton. I work about 5 miles from Exton, so there are a few easily accessable locations:) I am going to have to check this place out. Some of those pizzas sound really good

                                                          Never thougtht of Grotto's as good pizza. Pizza by the shore should be excluded because anything tastes palatable in the salt air. When my son was about five he had a slice of Grotto's and pointing to the oily pool on top, proudly and authoritatively announced, "See that Dad? That's the grease!" He has long since developed a more refined appreciation for pizza.

                                                            Grotto has four locations in the Scranton-Wilkes Barre area of Pennsylvania. Check out [url]www.grottopizza.com[/url], as well as [url]www.grottopizzapa.com[/url].

                                                            I happened to order pizza from the Wilkes-Barre location four years ago, and it was pretty darn good!
