Stopped in for a quick slice. Good taste but the slice was under cooked. Priced right with plenty of seating. Lots of pizza to select from. Very busy location. Beer is available here too! Owner on location! Would stop again.

November 14th, 2016 my African American male coworker ordered pizza at this establishment. After receiving his pizza, the OWNER asked him "What's the difference between apples and black people? None. They both look good hanging from trees." Unacceptable. Inexcusable. Do not patronize this business.

A co-worker of color had the owner tell him a very horrible racist joke. "What looks good hanging from a tree...?" Yah. It wasn't welcome and easily could be construed as threatening. I highly recommend avoiding this place.

Timmy the owner is very personable and has... More

I have my lunch and sometimes dinner here for over 10 years now. It is the best fresh food yet that I actually like and enjoy. The owners are awesome and the staff are people friendly!!!

Ruined out night, double booked an event and screwed us! We called a week in advance to plan our group of 40 to come in. WE arrive and they booked someone else there. Owner did nothing to help us get seated or make an attempt. Thanks for nothing!

I've eaten at this pizzeriia many times over the past 10 years. The food is always GREAT and the wait staff is terrific. I worked in the Ten Eyck Building which is just a few doors away from this pizzeria. I have bought up to 10 pizzas at one time for business lunches and have never been disappointed. Their subs...

We were on our way back to our hotel room after having a couple of beers and wanted to grab a quick snack. Pizzeria 54 was the only place that was still open at 3am so we followed everyone else in and grabbed a couple of slices. They were fresh from the oven and at 2.25/slice, the price was right....
