Live near the Staten Island Mall looking for pizza to be delivered

I just moved a few blocks from the Mall and would love suggestions to what Pizzeria to order from. A few places I saw on this site dont deliver at all and I dont think I would like Joe & Pats not being a fan of thin crust pizza

Ps just looking for a regular pie

Thanks,

Don

  1. Hi, Don. I wish I could help you. I'm on the island too, but not near your neighborhood.

    It seems many contributors here do like the thin crust variety, but if you like other kinds, there must be a good many. After all, SI seems to have a pizzeria on every other block. Pending further responses here, why not just visit a few near you and discover which you prefer? And then write here and tell us of your finds! We're all ears.

        Bump, you got to be kidding me. You guys know everything yet I'm getting no help

          Did you do a search on Staten Island Pizza here? You might turn up something.

          I tried to help you out by checking some other sites. Bridge & Tunnel doesn't seem to have anything in your area (Brother's on Port Richmond is closest) and Slice (see below) seems to review the same places that are touted on CH. There's a site called eGullet that you might look at.

            I'm not sure what a "regular pie" is a foodie lover wants, but maybe I'll try to turn this thread away from pizza to the great ethnic restaurants out here. I tried this with a previous thread and was mildly successful, although it turned back into a pizzas thread after a short time.

            You live by the Staten Island Mall my friend which culturally is a scorched earth zone including the pathetic Tiki bar that Bourdain went to with a mummified New York Doll. This board is full ad nauseum of Island pizza places none of which is in your nabe. However, odds are that in one of those horrendous strip malls that radiate off of Richmond Ave like vericose veins you will find a decent pie but first you must venture inside, take a look and maybe have a slice if it seems promising. Yes, boldly go where no hound has been before...

              Isn't there a steak house on Richmond Ave. that looks like it's been there since the 1950s? Always wondered if it's any good, even though I'm a vegetarian.

              Truth be told, there WAS a Japanese restaurant that was pretty darn good in one of those awful strip malls. Happened upon it a couple of years ago. Who knows if it's still there. An oasis.

              1. re: comestible

                I believe that the Japanese restaurant is in the same strip mall as the Vietnamese restaurant--next to the Staten Island Hotel--and I also believe that it is still there. Where is the steak house--I'm not a vegetarian.

                1. re: BMartin

                  comestible is probably referring to the fairly recently revived Henny's.

                  1. re: BMartin

                    Actually no, the Japanese resto I was referring to was in a forlorn strip mall adjacent to or behind the big mall...or behind another strip nearby. I'll be going in that direction to do some shopping soon, and I'll have a look to see if I can find it again.

        2. I have stated on SI at a hotel about a mile away from the mall and had great (at least I thought) pizza from this little family owned restaurant. It's in a strip mall near a Chili's I think.
