    One of the many many shops where you can get your quintessential slice of New York style pizza. You can’t leave New York without at least having had a slice. Joe’s claims to only serve “old-school, real deal New York Pizza. No string-bean, asparagus covered, wild turkey surprize pizza here.” I can confirm that they are true to their word. I did not see any of those aforementioned things on my very nice looking slice of pepperoni or fresh mozzarella slice that was shared between my YEA and I. The crust at the edge of crunchy yet soft and the pizza is nicely cooked at the bottom. You will need to do the old pizza fold in order to eat this without sharing the pizza all over your shirt so make sure you got the technique right.

    Went too early so I was only able to try cheese and pepperoni. They are really good in a way that I can’t quite explain. At first, I thought it’s missing the wow-factor, then I realized Joe’s Pizza is as tasty as small NYC pizzeria’s pizza can get. If you know how to cherish a delicious but cheap pizza, then this is the place to go. If you’re expecting some amazing, fine diner, Michelin Star Chef kind of thing based on the reviews and its reputation, trust me, you will be disappointed. I’m not saying one’s better than the other. Overall, this place rocks if you can appreciate it.

    As part of Scott’s Pizza tour. This was slightly my favorite over John’s and Lombardi’s. 5 stars on the pizza only. I did not set foot in the restaurant. Simple but refined and perfected plain cheese pizza. Sauce was divine. I’d eat it every day if I lived nearby.

    I doubt a trip to the west village would be complete without a slice of Joe’s- the pizza has the right amount of cheese and sauce ratio and is served fresh out of the oven. Given the footfall in this place, I doubt they are able to have anything but fresh pizza. We stood in a line for fifteen minutes to grab our slices of regular cheese. One issue though was that one slice was way smaller than the other. So if I was super hungry, it may not have been enough. Otherwise it’s a decent place. One of the New York staples.

    Great crowd, tranquil atmosphere & fast friendly service. Unfortunately I can't say the same for the pizza itself... It's curiously... average. It's far from being considered bad, but just as far from being seen as good. Luckily, "average" pizza in NY is still much more appetizing than "above average" pizza anywhere else. I know I only gave Joe's Pizza 3 stars, but I can still see myself giving them another try if I'm in the area. The great atmosphere & laid-back vibes are alluring on their own & maybe my first visit was an off night for them. So we'll have to wait & see

    Ok for a quick slice, but pretty expensive ($4 for one slice of pepperoni) and the place is cash only. You won't be blown away and you won't be disappointed by the pizza here. The crust is the best part of their pizzas. A bit crispy on the bottom but still maintains its chewiness. The sauce is pretty traditional Neapolitan... It tastes like pureed tomatoes and not much else. The Sicilian style (thick squares) has a very crispy, almost crunchy crust, but the thickness and chewiness of the dough makes it very enjoyable. Overall, just average pizza that's a little overpriced.

    This is the classic NY slice. Best in the City. Don't go there expecting to sit down and eat it in peace. But will definitely will be one of the top pizzas you ever had.

    I don’t understand the hype. Tried this late night and at lunch time. Both times the slice was thin and floppy. Very thin almost to the point of soggy and falling apart. However, the cheese and the dough is good...maybe would be better if cooked longer?

    This is the original Joe's, and I think it holds up to the hype. The pizza was good, prices were reasonable, and the service was fast. Although lines sometimes form, they seem to get through the customers very quickly. There is very limited seating, but you don't really need to sit to eat pizza. Also, there is a park basically across the street with plenty of benches. I don't think that this pizza is necessarily worth traveling for, but if I was anywhere in the area, it would absolutely be my first choice.

    Delicious! On a recent NY trip made our way to Joe's Pizza after reading their reviews and they did not disappoint. It was just the perfect slice of pizza. There was a long line which was a given for a Saturday night but it ran fast. We ordered and were even able to eat inside. Will definitely go back when in NYC again!
