I s told they sell 1500 slices daily ..do the math.
That's one hundred for every hour they're open not counting their other food items sold. Highly unlikely.

You don't believe anything do you? What's the sense in trying to have a rational conversation with you when you think you have all of the answers from 90 miles away.

You didn't believe the traffic count on Route 5 that came directly from the DOT and now you're questioning a restaurants numbers. Again, all from 90 miles away.

You're so blessed to carry so much knowledge.
Yup

It doesn't take a rocket scientist...or in the Uticans mind someone who works in "high tech"...to know that place doesn't sell that much food. 100 slices an hour. That means a customer essentially every minute of every day they are open buying two slices. Now factor in everything else they do. Do they serve fifty customers an hour for eleven hours a day just for pizza? Lol!!! You are touching yourself.
And yes the poster that cited those DOT numbers was lying. Those are far from the numbers.
Do utican seven realize that when they lie they at least need to make it believable. Yes I'm sure this pizza place serves 600 people a day just for pizza. Lol!!!!
I'm sorry for questioning you. I mean why wouldn't I believe you over the DOT. You've been correct on everything you've ever posted on here. I mean you nailed the Comets folding date. Please accept my apologies.

Well....this is just an opinion based on actually going there and eating. I don't know anything about the owners and people should keep in mind that everyone has their own idea of the perfect pizza. I was a little disppointedas it seems to be a gas burning pizza oven, not a wood one, which makes a difference in flavor and texture in my humble opinion. I think the pizza was fine, not bad in fact....just as good as most pizza places in the area but not as good as some others. All in all, I wish them the best.

Pizza when they first opened was a lot better then it has been now. Nothing special compared to pizza boys. venice and the others. Being on Varick St is the reason they sell so muchv
