Anyone able yet to compare the Robbinsville Pies to the Hudson St Pies?

      My sources (ok, my mom) say yes. She said there was a huge crowd when she drove by one Saturday. She could also be wrong and the crowd was for some other event in the shopping center. Either way, I'm staying away until stuff settles down.

      1. We went there last night to try it out. Sam's wife was working the front of the house, taking names. She told us that there would be a 45 min. wait, but we were seated in about 15 min. The decor is contemporary and beautifully done, with comfortable chairs. Lots of tables in the front and back, and about 5 booths in the middle that hold up to six people. They have an actual written menu here--listing the pizza (small--$10 and large--$13, plus $1 for each extra topping). Plus--they have a green salad and an antipasto. We didn't get either of those, but some were ordering them around us and seemed happy with it.

        The pizza to me was the same taste as the Hudson St. location that we know and love. I thought the crust was a little thinner and crisper, if that's possible. Yum!!!

        There are bathrooms :-) and they take credit cards at this location. Also, a biggy to me, they have glass glasses (not plastic) for all the drinks. It took us longer to get there, since we live in Bucks County, so we'll probably keep going to the Trenton shop. Hope they keep that one open. I hope the limited hours of operation are not a foreshadowing of things to come.

          Speaking of Hudson St ..There is a Steak sandwich place on Hudson St that is Great ..It is a through back to the 50's and the Pleople running the place are very friendly and appricate your bussiness .They also have good tomato pies

          1. re: big1515

            You're referring to Pete’s Steak House, 317 Hudson Street

            1. re: cranrob

              Is that the same ownership as the one in Ewing? There used to be one on Hamilton Avenue that was pretty good years ago.

              1. re: Heatherb

                I'm pretty sure it's the same owners. The menus are the same (at least they were the last time I checked).

                1. re: SarahEats

                  Pete's is the place .Good steak sandwiches ..with people that work hard to get your bussiness .Another good sigh the police eat there .!

            a little tip - the booths are only for 4 + so I was told by Sam's wife. Want to get seated quicker tell them you have party of 4 - you have now increased your chances of getting seated quicker - OH and if they seat you in a booth w.less than 4, just tell them the others are on the way

            1. re: puinsp

              I don't know about that... We were seated in a booth at a really busy time, and we were only 3 people.

          3. Finally got here last night. We arrived just before 5PM, and were told there would be a 45 minute wait, which actually turned out to be about 20 minutes. Pizzas are just like Hudson St. location. We also ordered the Green Salad, which was salad greens, sliced apple, and sweet glazed sesame-coated walnuts in a tangy vinaigrette. We'll be back. Soon.

            1. Wow. Rt 33 is now a destination with DeLo's and Tony Luke's just up the street.

                I also noticed a sign for a Sushi place opening up next door to DeLo's.

                1. re: rockhopper

                  Don’t forget Tattoni’s also moved to 33.

                  1. re: TomDel

                    They did? Where is it exactly? Is it still called Tattoni's?

                    1. re: cranrob

                      I haven't been there myself, so I'm not sure but I think it's near Mercer St. and 33, near the Blockbuster building. It may be in the strip mall accross the street. As far as I know it's still called Tattoni's. Anywho yellow pages lists the address as 1280 Highway 33, Trenton.

                      1. re: TomDel

                        There used to be a place called Pietro's in that strip mall and it's still in the phone book ( also at 1280 Hwy 33. Different phone than Tattoni's. Hmm... I'll be driving by there next week and will check it out.

                        1. re: carl555

                          It is the same location as what was Pietro's (and probably 3 other italian places in the last 5 years)...little strip mall across Rt.33 from Blockbuster, along with a bad Chinese restaurant. I really doubt that in that location it's the same Tattoni's as Trenton.

                          1. re: BeeZee

                            it is the same the same people and the same menu

                        2. re: TomDel

                          its at the strip mall they are just re-opening after a month off for vacation

                      2. re: TomDel

                        Ihave been going to tatonnis for years since the 70's my brother greg was great friends and my brother harry works for lou a couple of times a week for the last several/mant many yrs.

                    2. I don't get to DeLorenzo's often enough to know, but do they take reservations? I seem to recall that on my visits to Hamilton Ave. for lunch not only have we had a table reserved, but we've ordered our pies in advance. Can this be done in Robbinsville?
