Used to be great in Apex... – We used to go to the store in Apex on a pretty consistent basis, i.e. 1-2 times per week. The pizza was just the best around. Once the Fuquay store opened, the service and food quality seemed to go downhill pretty quickly. The pizza started having less cheese and toppings on it, and also the "bubble" all over the crust, from wrong dough prep... The younger kids are working more in the Apex store, and their customer service is not wonderful anymore.
You need to try Anna's Pizza in downtown Apex.. The place is small and can get overcrowded, but they have the best pizza around now...
Less then one start How old is your pizza – We will NEVER NEVER return to this restaurant again. My wife and I went on Saturday 17th 2009 about 1pm to the Fuquay Varina restaurant. We both ordered a small salad and 2 slice of PEPPERONI pizza each. We waited about 10 minutes for our salad, the server told us there was a fresh pizza being made. The salads were good and fresh. After eating the salad my wife told me she saw the waiter putting pepperoni on 4 slices of cheese pizza that had come out from the heat lamp. I turn and watch him put those slices, on a paper plate, in the bottom level of the pizza oven. After about 4 minutes the server took them out and brought them to our table. Needless to say the pizza slices were as hard as a brick. The server had walked away and my wife had put Parmesan cheese on hers and I was still trying to break my pizza slice to fold it. The waiter came back and asked if every thing was okay. I asked him how many times has this pizza been cooked. He stated once, but he put pepperoni on it and put it back in the oven. I told him I was DONE I did not want the pizza, I would pay for my salad and leave. At the counter paying for my salads and drink, the lady asked me what seemed to be the problem. I told her that my pizza was as hard as a brick and had been cooked twice. She stated "it is a little over done but it is not to bad", never getting a apology. While talking with the lady, the server took my wife's slices of pizza and slid them off her plate and back under the heat lamp. I asked the lady behind the cash register "DID HE JUST DO WHAT I THINK HE DID" and she asked the waiter did he just do that and he stated "YES" She told him ?no you throw that away and that is disgusting? and she looked back at my wife and I and told us that "We are normally not like this" Being the first time I had ever been in there "and the last" Leaving there never did I receive an apology. We paid the bill and left.If this is how they treat people in NewYork take it back there don't want it.
Great Pizza! – One of my good friends recommended this place if I wanted to experience new york pizza. Personally, I have never been to new york, but I LOVED THIS PIZZA. THe slices were hot, crispy and I love the cheese. The price was a little more than I expected but my boyfriend and I could not get enough of this pizza.
The Rating System here is Worthless !!! – The CitySearch Review system is absolutely WORTHLESS !!! Not just this Restaurant, but every one of them.
If you look at all of the "1-Star" and "5-Star" reviews, it is the only review written by the author. It si so very obvious that every one of those reviews were written by the Owners, employees and former, disgruntled employees that are fighting a "Ratings War", which is totally irrelevant to the Quality of the Establishment!
BEST FAMILY IN THE BUSINESS – If you know anything about family, then you know it is hard to get along all the time. But, that is some of the best entertainment available at this pizza store. Our family enjoys dining in so we can watch the pizza dough flying and the sauce spreading. The parents are pure Sicilian so they know what their doing. When the store is not packed with people, the family takes time to really get to know their customers and make you feel at home. We have been customers for six years at the Apex store, and just love it! We have also been to the Fuquay store which is better-suited for dining in. The food is fantastic! The cheese blend is amazing - they use two different kinds of mozzerella!! Whatever spices they put in that sauce is magical. And, I got the inside scoop that the dad is very particular about how his dough is prepared FRESH DAILY! YOu couldn't ask for anything more EXCEPT A canoli - WHICH THEY HAVE! The wait-staff is friendly. During the games, it's a great place to grab a cold beer and a slice of pizza with your friends. They got humongo TVs displayed all around the restaurant whether you like football, basketball or baseball. There is usually a game on. It's true that the wait can be long, but why wouldn't you expect that when they got the BEST pizza around. I must agree with kitzycathorse about the Fuquaychicky - what a rude person she must be and insecure. How could you make comments about a person's weight? Sounds more like a child wrote that review than a mature adult AND has absolutely nothing to do with how great the food is. Sometimes, we just can't get what we want right when we want it. Give the girl behind the counter a break! The wait can be long, the food is worth it and it's not the employees' fault. But, good things come to those who wait. What can I say, the place is popular, the family is sweet, hard-working and the food is Delicious! We'll be coming back again and again.
Great Pizza! – Ive been to the location in Apex many times and it is very good. I always order slices and they come out hot and fresh! My husband likes the stromboli. One of our favorite pizza places!!
Fuquaychicky customer – MAN! The chicky who smacked down on the heavy set girl seriously hates big folks - is that a hate crime? The jest of the comments seemed like hate crime to me. OR, maybe fuquay chicky is jealous of the heavy girl's pretty face and the fact that she is family. Bottom line - she showed her hate and her ignorance. Make love, not hate :) We we don't show love and mercy, we caaaan't get it.
Love J&S NY Pizza - have eaten many things on the menu - no complaints. I have actually been to New York some and YEAH MON! the pizza is good and maybe gets better as it lives longer down south :) The pizza place family members makes you feel like one of them. YES! The wait can be long, but when 200 people show up at a restaurant at once and there are only 75 chairs - hello? The wait was worth it and the waitress we had, Becca, was very attentive and smiley, and she hustled her tables.
The family are pure Italians and the parents, who started it, started in Brooklyn many years ago after coming to states from Italy - now how can this food be called bland? Italians don't make bland food and I have it straight from the dad that he does all the pizza dough and does not think anyone can learn the pizza dough trade and get it right unless they have done it for 10 years!!!!! Too bad the employees can't hang that long to "get it."
J&S - keep doing what you are doing - working hard, trying hard and the location is great and mucho needed - a family restaurant in the cute down town area with outside seating, cafe style when warm. Much luck in 2009!!!! WE WILL BE BACK OH AND WE LOVE THE APEX STORE TOO! Thanks for new TV there :)
bad day – I have been to most of the restuarants that are scored on city search, but I have never heard of a rude customer. I just recently went to the J@S New York Pizza Fuquay and had the oppurtunity to be serviced by the big girl. Well let me tell you that just after reading your review you must be pretty insecure(you must be a big girl yourself to have such a nasty mouth).God is the only one allowed to judge, so you must have something seriously wrong to make comments like that, anyways great experience as usual, and would recomend to anyone who knows what real pizza is. Pretty sad another customer defends against a rude foul mouthed wanna be GOD.
Absolutely WORST customer service I have EVER experienced!!!! I called to order a pizza for delivery. They took my order and called about 1 hour later saying they wouldn`t deliver to my house. Why didn`t they tell me this in the first place? Then I asked to speak to the mgr. on duty. He said , "I got something for you" and HUNG UP!!! Seriously, this is a business we are taking about? I then called and asked for the owner and again got the same gentleman and he started pushing buttons saying " I can`t hear you, I can`t hear you". Obviously these are very immature people. Please don`t waste your time with this place!
RUDE PEOPLE.....HEY ATLEAST YOU DONT HAVE TO TRAVEL TO NY TO GET THE RUDENESS!!!!!!!!!! – THE STAFF IS COMPLETELY RUDE ESP. THE HEAVYSET OR NOT SO WELL POPORTIONED YOUNG GIRL THAT DOES THE REGISTER EVERY TIME I HAVE BEEN IN THIS SO CALLED PLACE OF BUSINESS SHE HAS BEEN FLAT OUT RUDE SOME ONE NEEDS TO FIRE THIS GIRL!!!!! SERIOUSLY MAYBE IF SHE DIDNT EAT SO MUCH OF THEIR FOOD SHE WOULDNT HAVE A STOMACH FULL OF GREASE AND SHE MIGHT BE IN A BETTER MOOD!!!!! LOOSE SOME WEIGHT TUBBY TUBBY OR TRY EATIN SOME OF THEIR BLAH SALADS.
IF YOU WANT A TASTE OF NY GO HERE AND YOU'LL DEF. GET THE RUDENESS THEY HAVE THERE!!!!!
