Anyone tried RC'S PIZZA yet?

Just wanted to let all chowhounders know about a unbelieveable New York Pizza Parlor. Apparently they have 2, but I have only been to the one in Kingwood, TX. I spent most of my life in NY and now am forced to live in Tx. I have yet to find any pizza worth a crap. I've tried a lot of chains of course since that seems to be the majority of pizza restaurants here in Tx. And a few independent pizzeria's. In the last 9 years I've been here, I have never had a pie this good that takes me back to my youth. You gotta try it. Here's the info I have on it. 1202 Kingwood Dr., Kingwood, TX. 77339 281-358-4663

  1. Sorry you feel you must endure Texas... We would bring in some snow for you if we could... as well as some attitude. We do have one, it's just different, I guess.

    Anyway, we do try to provide a pizza that will make you happy as well as one that will give us that New York Pizza Parlor experience that you speak of and some of us aren't familiar with if we haven't traveled extensively in the NE. I know that I'm not alone in wanting to feel it here in Texas.

    We read of so many reasons that it's not working. I've heard the NYC water system, the Italian influence, and the different types of ovens. Whenever people come to Texas they don't want the Italian food we have here. I guess it's our interpretation ... we have everything we need to do this, on paper and in theory.

    I will definitely visit this place when in the Houston area. I'm dying to see what it is we are missing and how we can fix it.

    1. re: Rene

      OMG I so appreciate that Rene. I have also heard of restaurants importing water from NY for the perfect pizza. But in actuality, I think its all perception. Pizza is very personal. Some like one and not another. And many of us have great taste. I think pizza is an amzing experience that we can attribute to our life experiences, and that is what makes us all wonderfully different.

    2. "Forced" to live in Texas? Try eastbound I-20.
