I would happily list many of these same exact bites, although I’m not sure if it matters if the bites were had in previous years? haha

What do you get there?

usually just the plain cheese pizza, tbh. i’m a less is more guy when it comes to pizza, and i think it stands up to the better slices i’ve had in nyc. not unusual to order 10-15 pies in a night for the staff at salazar.

Ah ok, crazy haha

It’s pretty good.

Their sandwiches suck, though. Tried a philly pork out of curiosity…so awful.

I agree that their pizza is pretty good though, not sure who makes a better straight up pie really.

Agree. The philly pork sandwich was horiffic.

Still, a hot cheese slice from there is straight up excellent.

Someone here eats well
