When Westworld puts Marco's pizza as a top ten pizza choice (coal ..er I mean Wood Fired Pizza) then you know that perhaps Denver doesn't know. . .or haven't tasted good pizza?


The first time Yelp ever really let me down was the recommendation for Buenos Aires pizza (not a step above the cafeteria soft stuff they serve here at work. . but twice as expensive).


Anyone from a Pizza mecca (Chicago, New York, or Connecticut) find anything tolerable here in Denver?

Native NYC'er here. I lived around the corner from what many consider to be the best pizza in Brooklyn - Trio's on Avenue U. Certainly my all-time favorite.
I don't expect to find anything anywhere that good - different water produces different crust (same deal with bagels), but, there are a couple that I find perfectly satisfactory:

When I am at home - Anthony's, and the slices are ginormous.
When I am at work - Joey's New York pizza on Colfax between Grant and Logan.

Edited to add: I also like the pizza at Mici on Stout St., near the 16th street mall.

I wondered about that, I think some people just have bad taste in general and eat low quality stuff so they think a lot of places are top notch. I'm speaking generally about all types of food.

I.e.. the people who rate olive garden 4 or 5/5.

I've had pretty good luck with Osteria Marco in Laramier square and Pizzeria Locale in Boulder.

Native NYer here too. I just make my own. I make the dough from scratch, and freeze it. I got tired trying to find something that only exists in NY. I'd rather do it myself!

Just go with the flow.
I moved here in 1980 from greater Boston.
Was disappointed in the pizza. And, lots of ex-East-Coasters complained.
It has become better, but this is not NYC nor Chicago.
Fine some you are OK with and relax. Wine helps.

Perhaps there's a correlation here. Colorado has the lowest obesity rate and the worst pizza- hmmmmm

On the other hand, Mexican food in Chicago, New York, and Connecticut really sucks.

I guess it all balances out.
