      After talking to my Hamilton friends they say stick to Papas Tomato pies in the burg!

    2. the first time I went there they were OK, so I thought I'd give it another try. The second time, the pies again were just OK. In a pinch, we picked up pies for our third try. They were horrible. If I didn't know any better, they warmed up pies that were sitting all day (the ones for slices) and put them in a box. They were HORRIBLE. I'll never go back.

        Try Papa's in Trenton in the burg if you want great Tomato Pies ;)

      2. Coreleone's in Hamilton is such a fantastic pizza place/restaurant. The Tomato Pies are out of this world. It was the best tomatoe pie I have ever had. Also they have different varieties of pizza. Dinners are great. The staff was friendly. This is my new weekly pizza place and I definetly recommend going there.

            Wow, finally got around to picking up a large tomato pie there and let me say, we were not disappointed. It was excellent, even as take out which moste tom. pies don't hold up for. They describe their old fashioned pies as having sweet plum tomatoes, mozz and olive oil. The tomatoes (just the right amount) are true to that description, very sweet which pairs well with the salt in the cheese, and the thin crust, a little different than DeLorenzo's, I actually liked it better. To all tomato pie lovers, I definitely recommend giving it a try! I'm hooked.

          2. Outside of Trenton, best Tomato Pies around, their Cheesesteaks are awesome, and their antipasto is delicious and can feed an army...plus free zeppoles for the kids...

            1. Their Brooklyn pie is addicting, so much so that I might pony up the hefty price for delivery, which includes an outrageous 20% gratuity on top of the delivery charge (which they did not tell me about so I ended up tipping on top of that -- not happy). Their regular pie is completely unremarklable. I like Papa's Tomato Pies much better -- but they do not take credit cards. I am trying Jeppy's Brroklyn pie tonight and will post a review later.

              Love the free zeppoles.
