This unassuming Heights pizzeria could have been teleported in its entirety from a strip mall on Long Island, down to the grimy carpet and grease-encrusted arcade games. Founded in 1980 by a Brooklyn transplant, the pizza has that region’s classic thin-yet-chewy crust with generous carbuncles for gripping the slice. Snobs don’t like the canned mushrooms, but that’s part of this authentic strip-mall cuisine. Some say it’s the best pizza in Albuquerque. Try the pineapple-ham-green-chile, and see what you think. Also on the menu: subs, hot and cold.
Alibi recommends: The Lunch Deal and its couple slices are damn hard to top.
Vibe: The nostalgia of old has been replaced by the glass-polish of new.
