    One of the best pizza joints on the East Coast...To die for, thin crust pizza smothered in hot oil. YUM!

    Thin crust pizza and local pub. Specialty is the hot oil pizza. No thrills here just good thin crust pies.

    Delicious. Worth the wait. I would say it's better to order in the restaurant as opposed to picking up for take-out.

    The specialty, a Hot Oil pizza, is a local legend and has spawned a few franchised locations elsewhere in CT. The ambiance and experience makes seeking out this hole-in-the-wall original worthwhile.

    Cheesy, pockmarked bar pizzas are the thing to get at this old-school Connecticut tavern.

    The sodas come in tiny juice glasses. You're better off getting a pitcher if you like to drink a lot with your meal.

    Always save at least 2 pieces for Breakfast. Cold Colony is the only thing better than hot Colony. If you eat your whole pie. Bring a Friend who doesn't eat a lot and take theirs home.

    Sausage is a must. Bacon & Onion is really good too. No matter what, get hot oil. Stingers are not for the weak but very tasty.

    The stingers are serranos. The source for the heat in the Hot Oil. Do Not get both unless you can handle extreme heat. Fire in your Wire.

    It's hard to go wrong with any of the pizza toppings, just make sure to include Hot Oil as one. I loved the Pepperoni, Sausage, Peppers, and Onions too. Read all about it on WinstonWanders below! Read more

    I reccomend the delicious sausage, peppers & onion pie. It's thin thin, thin crust, oily and every bite is packed with flavor. I'd say its no frills bar pizza that surprises you with it's tasty punch.
