My oldest daughter and I were on an errand and all of a sudden I see this vehicle with I love NY all over it. So, of course we were delighted at the design. Then, I thought “..hmm, wait a second, most people do not decorate their vehicles like this. Could this be pizza?” I seem to be drawn to all things New York and I can always sniff out a good pizza.
The vehicle was driving and we were walking. So that was the first challenge. Luckily, they turned the corner and pulled into a car wash. So we followed them, of course. Don't worry people, I am totally not a stalker – unless New York style pizza is involved. Anyhow, sure enough once we got closer, we saw that it was in fact a pizza vehicle – one for I Love NY Pizzeria Denver (nypizzaden.com/). So we robbed them for the pizza. Kidding. We took down the name and number nonchalantly and went home and ordered it.
We opted for ordering online, as this was most convenient for us. The online menu was simple to navigate, even with all of their options. The prices were more than fair as compared to similar styles of pizza restaurants we've tried in the past. Payment processing online went smoothly as well. You can choose from paying cash at delivery or paying via PayPal, which allows more options such as credit card payment.
When the pizza delivery driver arrived, the kids were playing just outside the door with their friends. They excitedly shouted “Are you the pizza dude?” He replied back very friendly stating that he was and joked with the kids for a second. That was already a win – that and the fact that he didn't have to call me to figure out where my place was. Most delivery drivers get lost trying to find us. But he had no issues and arrived earlier than expected. The pizza smelled so good before he even handed it to me.
The delivery driver was very friendly with me as well. The conversation was the perfect amount of time – not so fast and rude like you don't matter, but not too long that you're wondering when the person will leave.
The kids and the dogs were all immediately in line behind me as I carried the food inside. It did smell pretty darn good. But the taste test would be the true test. I threw the dogs a few pepperonis (yeah, I know they're bad, they don't get them often) and they wouldn't leave me alone after that. So that was a good sign. Then, the rest of us dug in.
The cheese was very “melty” just like New York pizza should be and the toppings all tasted fresh, unlike many delivery pizzas we've tried. I ordered more than we usually order because I had planned on us having some for lunch the next day. However, we ended up eating it all that night. We chose a few different types of pizzas and toppings and equally enjoyed them for different reasons.
