After ordering a slice and mentioning if it's for eating in or to take away, wait a couple of minutes as the slice is baked in a pizza oven. My choice today was an olive and pepperoni pizza.
In mid-afternoon, this location wasn't crowded at all so it was a rather quiet lunch in this crazy part of the city. With a medium drink my total was $5.80. That's a value that is not bad at all for Times Square. The slice was good enough that I almost ordered seconds.
Many see Times Square as a collection of chain restaurants preying upon tourists and so many avoid the area like a plague. But if you're staying in the area, then it would be a battle to have to find every meal beyond its borders. If it's practical to eat within Times Square, then remember this is New York City and restaurants are something that are not in short supply. If you don't want to eat a chain restaurant, then there always alternatives to please your palate even in tourist driven Times Square.
