Take a good look at the guy with the long white beard. Does he remind you of somebody you might be familiar with who wears a red suit, has a big bag of presents and rides a sleigh pulled by Eight Reindeers ? You might be familiar with them too. Their names are; Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixon, Comet, Donder and Blitzen. And the Most Famous Reindeer of all - Rudolph.

Even if he is NOT a fan of Pepes Pizza, I do know this about the guy in that picture with the long white beard. He is one GREAT GUY who has ALWAYS been very good to me. I know that he also used to ride with his favorite FDNY Fire Company, I think it was Engine 69/Ladder 28.
He also has documented some of the BEST FDNY Pictures around and shares those EXCELLENT PHOTOS in his own web site titled: www.fdnysbravest.com . What a collection it is.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH Brad for posting these pictures for me. As they say; "a picture is worth a thousand words".

To ALL my NYC buddies, I think these pictures speak for themselves. Those people aren't standing in line to collect their welfare checks. But rather waiting to get inside of their favorite Pizza Restaurant. Yet, in conducting on scene interviews, throughout that large crowd waiting to go inside for their "favorite" pizza pie, there are many New Yorkers who have left the five boros of NYC, then drive the 75 mile trip on the very busy I-95 in Connecticut, just to get a spot in line at their favorite pizza place. The one that has been ranked NUMBER 1 - 4 years in a row, as the BEST PIZZA in the Entire Country.

As for my good buddy Brad, "signal 73", I am certainly grateful to him for once again posting these pictures for his Uncle Wilfred. I'm actually kind of glad that he isn't standing in line like so many others, because that is One LESS person that I have to wait to get a seat and thrown down one of Pepe's LARGE Meat Special Pies. YUMMY.

Gentlemen, your comments were all well taken. But there really can be "ONLY ONE WINNER". By the popular vote, that WINNER IS - ONCE AGAIN - Pepe's Pizza.

Order Yours Today. Tell'em Uncle Wilfred, aka "NFD2004", sent you.

Why would anyone give any thought to “Drive 75 miles” to the northern, untamed province of something called Connecticut when one can take an enjoyable (free) Staten Island Ferry trip and a short bus ride to Joe and Pat’s on Staten Island. The next closest “best” is Domino’s Thin Crust. Take it from a lifelong NYC Irishman who knows about these things!!

Bill – how about sending us each a full pie so we can see for ourselves?

"manhattan", YES, we might be buddies, but NO MORE PEPE Pies for "You NY Guys".

I already spent too much of my hard earned cash on "YOUR Other Buddies" here, (left to right), "Johnny Gage, "Mr fdce54", "mikreindabronx", and "jbendick", giving them plenty of FREE Samples of what the entire country voted as "The Best Pizza in America". (Reply # 24)

As has been mentioned here before. Take a good look at their faces. Do they look HAPPY ? At least Mr Gage did his best to try and smile.

Not only that, at this Pepe's the waitress had a thing for "ME". That was clear to see. But I think those guys might have been a little jealous over that too.

They can have their Arthur Ave Pizza Joints. A while back when they bought me and a couple of other out of state guys to a pizza joint there, at least we smiled after putting a couple of slices in our bellies. "It's just the polite thing to do".

I think back then, the Rev (CFDMarshall), Declean (Irish), and maybe Johnny D (Johnd248), was also with us. Of course "Johnny D" being from Brooklyn hates to admit it, but he's now living a life of luxury here in Connecticut. "HOME TO THE BEST RATED PIZZA IN THE COUNTRY.

Joe & Pat's pies are good, but they're so thin that one can easily eat 5 or 6 slices and not feel full. The box the pie comes in is thicker than the crust.
