New York Pizza in Jacksonville – Day 1

September 18, 2006

Just pulled into Jacksonville and immediately found my way to Tony’s New York Style Pizza out on St. Augustine Rd, South of town near where I-295 meets I-95.  I was excited as I approached the place– how can you go wrong with a place called Tony’s New York Style Pizza???  The answer is you can’t go wrong.

I walked in to hear Van Morrison playing “Into the Mystic” and I was very pleased– I’ve been on a Van Morrison kick lately.  A mural of the Statue of Liberty on the wall, pictures of gondolas and other scenes from Italy hanging about.  We ordered slices and were very pleased.  No Sicilian Slices were available– that gave them a 90 on the Sliker Rating System.  A 4 stars out of 5 on the Yummy scale– very good stuff!

New York Style Pizza in Mobile, Alabama!

September 18, 2006

You may not expect to find New York Style Pizza in South Alabama, but then again you may not really NEED a slice.  So with a little research prior to my trip, I found the prospect of Papa’s Pizza in the town of Daphne, just east of Mobile.  Papa’s is just a 1/2 mile south of I-10, just east of Mobile Bay on Hwy 98.  

 Papa’s may also be home to the world’s largest slices.  Fortunately I only ordered two slices (I often order 3).   I was disappointed at first to see the pizzas being cooked on a conveyer belt  (Lose 10 points on the Sliker Rating System).  But then the Slice Pie started peeking out of the little conveyer belt oven and I couldn’t believe my eyes– a 28″ pizza pie!   I am tempted to give it extra points for having Extra Large Slices,  but thought better of it.

Overall score on the Sliker Scale is a 90, on the Yummy Scale it gets 3.5 out of 5 stars.  Their take out menu says they have a website at, but I get a dead link.
