Boardwalk Pizza in Falls Church

  • s

The folks who own the frozen dairy bar on Rte 50 have added a pizza section to their place. They are from the Jersey Shore and are out to replicate the boardwalk experience of cheesy pizzas and frozen cones. Although the name Boardwalk Pizza sounds like it must be some kind of chain - complete with a conveyer belt desktop cooker, it really is a one-of-a-kind operation featuring gas decks and Jersey toppings like vinegar peppers, sliced meatballs, and the like. They are serious about their pizza.

Anyone interested in replicating that Boardwalk feeling should check it out. Just try a slice and see how you like it. YMMV. I thought it's a good attempt, though I doubt I'll go back for a whole pie.

  1. I've had a slices there on a couple of occasions and found them to be OK but nothing special, but then I wouldn't expect much different given that I'm eating reheated pizza. They have a lunch special with an individual (I suppose) sized pizza which I presume will be cooked to order. I'll have to give that a try some day when my carbohydrate and cholesterol budget allows. ;)

          Arlington Boulevard (Rt. 50) and Annandale Road. And if you chicken out on the pizza, Miu Kee is on the other end of the short strip, reported good food (particulaly dumpling soups) and sloppy housekeeping.

            1. Anyone have any updates on Boardwalk since 2007?

                it's just OK in my opinion, but anthony's in falls church is much, much (much) better. ask for "extra crispy."

                  I can't eat a whole pizza. Does Anthony's sell by the slice? Boardwalk's slices are OK, but I usually don't get past the frozen custard. (but I like Nielsen's custard better)

                    mike, i think they might (though they're not on the menu), but they also have a "small" 9" whole pizza.
                    i have no idea what the turnover rate of the pizza slices -- if they have them -- might be, though.

                      The small pizza at Anthony's or any New England-style greek pizza joint is the perfect size for one person.
