So far I can't find any good pizza places in these areas.

I was just in Philly yesterday and I had some really good plain cheese pizza. It had a nice not thick but not too think buttery crust, flavorfull sauce and the cheese was nicely melted and gooey in a very yummy way.

Unfortunately, I can't find anything like that. Of course I have only gone to maybe 2 or 3 pizza places in the 2 years I have lived in West Chester (not counting pizzeria uno). However, these places have been HORRIBLE. Their crust taste like it is just made with white flour and water and it usually gets dark brown but not a golden toasted color the way the pizza in philly was. I do like Unos, but I would love to be a to go to a neighborhood place that has that homemade flavor.

Thanks

Have you tried Riggtown Uptown on Market Street? I don't think I can ever pass up a slice whenever I visit there. It's delicious, and a slice of regular cheese goes for $1.00. It's usually mobbed on the weekend after the bars let out.

Thorndale Pizza Box, there's also a good italian place, Rino's, on Business 30 right in the strip mall right next to the Exton Mall.

Absolutely the best. Get the extra cheese!

You can't get good pizza in PA, only in NJ. Suggest you go over the bridge to King of Pizza on Rt 70 in Cherry Hill. Nothing like that exists in PA.

LOL. Jersey doesn't beat Philly in the Pizza department. That's laughable.

Philly has good sloppy eats, no question, but I have never found a good pizza place in Philly or the PA burbs. It just doesn't compare to Jersey.

Brother's Pizza in Cinnaminson is the best.

They've been there for 20 years, in a strip mall that at different times had absolutely no other stores in it.

They've never offered delivery either, yet they're still there.

Lavita's on Main St in Moorestown is pretty good. We go there sometimes.

I believe King of Pizza has won numerous best pizza in SJ awards. You might mean Passariello's in Moorestown, fantastic pizza.
