My review on TripAdvisor:


J’s Pizza at 96 Seventh Avenue

I have been coming to J’s Pizza for many years and had eaten here in the past after viewing the Halloween Parade in October. I just rediscovered it again when I started grad school in the neighborhood and forgot how good the food was when I dined here. The pizza slices are generous in size and their marinara and pizza sauces you can tell are freshly made and not from a can.

The sauces for all the meals here from the pizza, to the spaghetti and meatballs to the sauce that is the side to the many rolls and calzones is well spiced and has so much flavor to it. It really makes the dishes.

J’s Pizza counter is lined with pizzas and calzones

The wonderful garlic knots, Chicken and Pepperoni Rolls and Grandma Pizza

The Chicken, Sausage and Pepperoni rolls and fresh Grandma Pizza

The selection of pizzas by the slice are extensive

The menu is very extensive and what I like about dining here is that there are a lot of options if you are on the run. They have a nice selection of pizzas by the slice at later hours of the day and they are always so fresh. There is a nice selection of rolls and calzones as well if you want something a bit more filling.

The menu is extensive and very reasonable

The Daily Specials at J’s Pizza

Their prices are very fair and the portion sizes are generous with everything you order. I like the daily dinner specials even though they have raised the prices a bit they are still a great bargain if you are on a budget.

Many of the meals that I have had recently have not exceeded $10.00 or just a bit more than $10.00 with a drink and tax. You are not going to get a better bargain with the quality and size of the portion.

My first dinner there was this delicious Baked Ziti Pizza

My second trip was for this wonderful Chicken Roll

The Tuesday Night Special is Spaghetti & Meatballs for $9.00

On a cold and rainy night at the end of the November, I stopped in after class for dinner needing some comfort food on this chilly evening. I ordered the Lasagna, which I was in the mood for (it is on the special at the end of the week but I need it). It was really good.

Layers of Lasagna noodles with lots of mozzarella cheese and ground meatballs. It could have used some Ricotta Cheese in it but still it was topped with their delicious sauce and served with a side of garlic knots. What better way to end this gloomy evening. Everything was delicious.

The perfect comfort food on a cold night

The service is really wonderful and the owner is really friendly to me when I come in on Tuesdays for dinner (Class night). It is nice that there are still places in Manhattan for wonderful reasonable meals.

I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
