I think Randy's is the best pizza in the Triangle (that I've tried). I haven't had it from that particular location, I don't think. It is definitely NY style and very good. But you can never have too many good pizza places! In NJ or NY, there are usually a plethora of pizza places in a given town, and most are at least pretty good even if you just stop at a place randomly. Here you really need to pick and choose to find the good ones.

Randy's is great pizza when you eat it at the restaurant; carryout and delivery is not as good.

This has been my observation.

yes, I like their pizza but the crust doesn't hold up well.

Dave, from Queens NY, is a Jewish guy who is one of the owners of Randy's. I agree the pizza is generally great but alas, it can be inconsistent. It depends who makes the pizza. Randy's uses local Durham tap water with no vintage H2O imported from NYC.

I personally can't stand pizza that I have to fold over to eat. If I wanted that I'd get a calzone.

I know you New Yorkers love the fold over though.

Randy's tastes really good though despite the foldover.

you fold it so you can hold it in one hand, and don't look like a two year old learning to eat or worse yet go at it with a knife and fork.

I lol'd because that's exactly how I feel when eating Randy's pizza, cause I refuse to fold it. So I do this awkward two handed ordeal where now that you mention it, I probably look like a two year old learning to eat.

Although Randy's is so thin sometimes that it even flops after a fold.

Randy's is great, and it definitely is IMO. DiFara is a different situation as there's a lot of legend around the place, but the Randy's near me is just as good to me if you add extra cheese.

Hang on, you're stepping on some toes I start with a knife and fork, and finish by picking it up...no folding required

+1

I use a knife and fork to savor the exact amount I want until the end when the pizza begins to cool .... that's when I pick it up
