99 Cent Fresh Pizza
Posted by Mark C on 01/23/2013
Sometimes, it's possible to find a genuine value; high quality for a low price. This is not that kind of establishment. These slices cost a dollar for a reason - the ingredients used are cheap, low quality - especially the cheese. Low-quality pizzas use low-quality cheese: the sort that quickly separates into fat and solids. This pizza has a thick layer of grease from the cheese. I soaked 3 thick napkins with it to try to dab off all the grease. Also extremely salty and greasy residue. Save your money, this is not a value.

the food isn't bad, you get it fast, and its actually $1.00. At 2 locations, I have yet to receive either my penny or even a napkin. I frequent the place for the value. The foodbisnt filling and they have no problem stacking multiple slices on 1 place.

if you've ever been to any 99 cent/ dollar pizza place, you know the deal. It's a tiny hole in the wall shop that fits one person behind the counter, one person behind the oven, and about 5 standing customers. All they sell is pizza and canned/ bottled beverages. This is a GREAT place to grab a slice if you're on the go, didn't have time for breakfast, or are just piss broke like me. Slices are normal sized, and I think have the right combo of sauce and cheese to taste right but not make you feel enormously guilty about the calories. Another great thing about this place is that it's open LATE. Like 3 in the morning late. Perfect for getting a bite on your way home from the club. This place is definitely a blessing to this incredibly over-priced neighborhood!

The obvious criticism of these guys is that they are using a bare minimum of cheese and sauce in order to sell a slice for a third of what others charge. But the average NYC slice has gotten so heavy and cheesy that I think it's about time someone went in the opposite direction. My hunch is that the first pizza's ever, back in Italy centuries ago, were probably a lot closer to this than a 1000 calorie slice of Ray's.

this place will never be mentioned in the Michelin Guide but for 99 cents you can get a pizza just out of the oven and that doesn't taste bad. If you are looking for a cheap quick bite that's your place..

Restaurant Review From The NYC Supper Club. This is a very small pizza shop in Midtown East. Let me warn you that first of all, there is no seating available in the place. People line up outside, come in and place their order. Then they leave to roam about the streets of Manhattan, pizza in hand. First of all the positive – it really is $.99 a slice. They have a special where one can get two slices and a soda (or water) for under $3.00. They also make pies in 14, 16, and 18-inch. Their prices for these are quite reasonable as well and they do deliver. Of course, the original price if for plain cheese and additional toppings are $2.00 more each. So what do you get for this? One step ahead of over coked cardboard. The slices I got were burnt on the bottom, they had no taste whatsoever, and little ingredients. No wonder it is only $.99. For me, I would pay a little extra and get something that tastes good; after all, isn’t that why we like to eat in the first place? I am sorry, but won’t be going back here anytime soon. The menu only consists of pizza and a meat patty if you dare try one.

i rated the atmosphere low because well, there is no atmosphere! lol. its a great little shack on 9th ave that gets you the bang for your buck. unfortunately there isnt a seating area. and well there isnt much to settle when you want to eat there, just a bar table really. but new yorkers are always on the go, the true NY expirence comes here at 99 cent. where the pizza is great, fast and your off to your busy day.
