I live near here and this pizza is the best NY style pizza in Atlanta. It's so good that my family from NY actually said it tasted like NY pizza. We only order plain cheese though. They also serve pasta which is delicious as well. It's a great place to go for lunch or dinner when you don't want to... More

Empire State has been our family hole in the wall favorite for years. To our suprise when we came to pick up our carry out calzone last week that Empire now has a new owner. We met Steve and he seems to be very nice and eager to please his customers. We wished him the best and assured him that... More

We saw all the good reviews and it is not too far from us. We decided to give it a try. We ordered an 18" with 2 toppings. I tried to grab my fist slide and noticed the crust was extremely wet and soft. Before I can get the slice off the pie, a chunk of cheese with toppings fell... More

My boyfriend and I stopped by Empire Pizza the day before yesterday. We aren't too familiar with the area and were in a hurry and we saw this pizza place and decided to give it a try. First off, we were the only people in there at 1130am. We looked at a menu and decided I wanted wings and he... More

The Calzone and Stromboli here are superb. This place is not much to look at, both inside and outside, but looks can definitely be deceiving. The Calzone are bigger than a deflated Tom Brady football and certainly taste better. You can get two meals out of one, unless you are intent on a carb overload. I know because I did.... More

I have not been here in years but I had a take-out calzone and I swear it tasted like it was delivered from Brooklyn. It was big and the inside ingredients went all the way to the edges. Don't you hate it when you get a calzone somewhere and it takes three bites to get to the good stuff? Not... More

A friend raved about the calzones at this restaurant so the wife and I decided to try them. Our Verdict: The Good: The calzones were large, and a lot of food for the price; friendly service The Bad: The bulk of the calzone was dough....and more dough. Not very tasty. Bottom Line: If you want volume for your money, this... More

We often take advantage of the specials on Wednesday (calzones) and Thursday (wings) and everything we have ordered is delicious. Great for takeout and table dining. They have a few tvs to watch. Nice little deck for outside dining.

Went here for lunch today. They gave pizza by the slice and it very tasty. Two pieces were enough for me along with a beer. I will be back soon and try their Calzone special on Wednesdays.

My brother took me here Weds evening, 2/18. It was fairly crowded, when we were there. My brother had a calzone and I had a sausage roll. Our server, Kim, was very attentive and informative (since I had not been there before and I had a question or 2 about what was on the menu). My brother's calzone was very... More
