    I’m sure they didn’t steal the pizza ……….

    • NY Pizza

      Pizza at NY pizza prices is always a steal!
      On a more serious note, all of these armed robberies suck. It’s really getting scary. I used to just think that if I weren’t out of the house between midnight and 5 am I’d be fine. Put more plain clothed officers out there as targets or something, then lock these wastes of oxygen up and throw away the key.

    Isn’t this the third pizza place to get robbed by 2 men in ski masks with hand guns? H&Pizza was 2 weeks back and I remember another one last week too!

  • Pizza Patrol

    That’s absolutely horrible they were robbed but honestly I wish they would step up their game. I’ve had a LOT of pizza in my life and NY Pizza is the worst I have ever had.
