Best time to go to Di Fara's?

We will be going to Di Fara's on Sunday and were wondering what is the best time to get there for the shortest amount of wait?

  1. Opening time - which is generally between 11:30 am and noon.

      Agreed. I've gone there at 12:15 PM on a Sunday and there was nobody there.

    2. My son says to go when it's cold or snowing. Otherwise there is no good time. He went last Wednesday during the snow and didn't have to wait.

      1. We were there today at 11:55 and had fresh slices, no waiting. You may not be as lucky on a Sunday, but agree early is your best chance.

        1. a GREAT time to go is on a monday or tuesday or even wednesday night at around 9:30/45 ish- dom is always cranking out pies, the oven is screaming hot, and there is usually no one around. order a fresh pie with 1 slice of a topping on it- then distribute the mountains of said topping to the rest of the pie. dom has great pepperoni, the artichokes are great, the green olives great, etc. enjoy and best- fb

          1. I like weekday midafternoons. 3pm, 4pm, 4:30pm.

              Agree...have had nothing but success on recent weekday "lull" hours between 3 & good last trip (Friday) that a box of three fresh squares was in my hand (to enjoy four hours later) within five minutes. Milagro!
