I came for lunch in February. This is a small summer town, Seaside Heights, NJ. The pizza slice was fresh and giant! The sauce ever so flavorful with spicy sweet sausage. The cheese had a wonderful taste and texture. The jalapeño poppers were stuffed with cheddar cheese,, different and nice. The calamari was crispy but NOT greasy. It all washed... More

I have been so many times over the years and always loved it until today. Sunday Feb. 19th was horrible. First after being seated, it took so long for service that the busy hostess noticed that no one came over to take our order. After someone finally showed up to take our order we were still feeling ingnored when after... More

When operating their business in Seaside Park the food quality was higher. Now that they are operating their business in Seaside Heights the food quality is lower. Menu prices are higher! I was very upset paying for a low quality slice of pizza.

Maruca's tomato pie has been a longstanding institution on the Seaside Heights Boardwalk. It has moved twice since super storm Sandy, but is a nice fit sharing space with JR's. What's different?? You can now get a bar pie vs. the gigantic regular Maruca pie but with the the same taste and 2 cheeses. What's great is that you can... More

Right on the boardwalk midway. Covered seating so you still get the view. We had huge pizza slices, sausage sandwich with peppers and onions and draft beer on tap. A little pricey at $25 but good food, great view and the shore experience.

Been wanting to try this pizzeria for quite some time. Being a former Pizza man I just had to see for myself what the hype was all about? I have eaten a lot of pizza and I will say that this pizza ranks among the top 3 pizzerias I have eaten at in my life time. The crust is exceptional... More

great jersey shore pizza, on the Boardwalk. One of the differences is they spiral the sauce on over everything!

Get a slice of Maruca's! This place has been a stable on the Jersey boardwalk for 40+ years. A walk on the boardwalk always included a slice.

We ordered a super sized Maruca's cheese pizza ($28) while visiting with friends who said this was the best pizza on the boardwalk. The slices are HUGE and I love the spiral swirl of cheese and sauce. The pizza hit the spot for quick eats after a day at the beach. It wasn't the best I've ever had, but it... More
