UPDATE: Bayonne’s Pizza Linos—Watch Them on TV’s Hungry Investors

Original Review: 05/03/14 PIZZA SNOB RATING     ****½ Nearer Perfection One of the Pizza Snob’s favorite new Bayonne pizza places, Pizza Linos, was recently featured on Spike TV’s Hungry Investors, and you can watch it online here. Seems like times have been tough for this local joint, and they turned to the team of Jon Taffer, […]

Dazzo’s Pizzeria—Good New York Style Pie in Knoxville

The Philosopher and I still had time to kill before our evening’s concert entertainment in Knoxville. So we left our disappointing pizza experience at The Tomato Head to grab a slice at a place my other son, The Kid, recommended. We were clueless about its actual name and location since The Kid’s full intel was […]

The Tomato Head—Knoxville Restaurant’s Pizza Disappoints

Knoxville, about a three-hour drive east from Nashville on Interstate 40, is a city that The Pizza Snob has seldom visited. Recently, my son, The Philosopher, and I made a trip there to see Elvis Costello at the drop-dead gorgeous historic Tennessee Theatre. This gave me to chance to knock another pizza joint off of […]

New York Pizza in Homewood, Alabama – A Place That Just Doesn’t Live Up to Its Name

If I behave myself, Mrs. Pie will let me stop for pizza along I-65 on our annual vacation drive to the Florida Panhandle. Timing has it that going down we stop in Montgomery while coming back it’s Birmingham. My pre-screened pick for this year’s return trip was the enticingly-named New York Pizza in Homewood, a […]

New Pizza on the Panhandle—Acme Ice House Brings “American” Food to Florida’s 30-A

Every summer seems to bring at least one new place serving pizza to Florida’s 30-A. This year’s offering is from the Acme Ice House in Seacrest Beach. A rather elaborate establishment with a Happy Days 50s feel, Acme focuses on good old American staples like burgers, fried foods and pizza. (The Brooklyn Meatball Sub sure […]

Joey’s Pizza Truck—Nashville’s Best Pizza Goes Mobile

When local radio station Lightning 100 kicked off the sixth season of its Live on the Green outdoor concert series, there was a new addition to the line-up of food trucks parked along Deaderick Street. Joey’s on Wheels, the pizza truck run by Joey’s House of Pizza, was there doing a brisk business. At usual […]

UPDATE: Enzo’s Italian Restaurant—Still the Best on Florida’s 30-A

Original Review: 10/07/12 Previous Rating: ***1/2 Working On A Good Thing Two summers ago, The Pizza Snob travelled across the Florida Panhandle’s Highway 30-A looking for good pizza. Hands down, the most authentic and tastiest pie I found was at Enzo’s Italian Restaurant. Previously located on the west end of 30-A in Santa Rosa Beach, […]

Panama Pizzeria—The Death of a Slice in Panama City Beach

During our annual beach vacation in the beautiful Florida Panhandle, Mrs. Pie had a need to go to the mall. Since we were staying on the east end of 30A, that meant we would take a trip over to the mega Pier Park outdoor shopping center in Panama City Beach. On the drive over I […]

Tomatinos Pizza & Bake Shop—An Adventure with Whole Wheat Crust in Montgomery, Alabama

There are quite a few pizza joints that I visited before I became the self-anointed Pizza Snob. Recently I returned to one that I enjoyed despite it not being a purveyor of classic New York-style pizza. On our way to the Florida Panhandle for our annual beach vacation, Mrs. Pie and I took a break […]
