Poor dawgfan1982 wouldn't know good pizza if it landed in their lap.\r
Now I can agree that many Nashvillians haven't ventured to the Northeast and wouldn't understand what makes a pizza great. However many of us, myself included, have spent quite a bit of time traveling to the New York metro area and can appreciate a properly made pizza. Joey's is most definitely on par with many of the eateries up North.\r
I can say that I have gained tremendous perspective after dining at every one of the Top 10 pizzerias in America (as rated by Epicurious). If you haven't eaten at Frank Pepe's in Connecticut, or even Letizia's, you aren't prepared to accurately judge other pizzas.\r
The only two places in Nashville that can compete on a national level are Joey's and the 2 Pizza Perfect locations. And no, you can't make a proper judgment by ordering a cheese or pepperoni pizza. Please! A true taste test should be determined by an establishments finer toppings; roasted garlic, feta cheese, peppers, artichokes, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, etc.\r
Joey's House of Pizza is incredible, and their peppers are probably the best I've ever had. The cheese and sauce are a delicate balance and it's well worth the wait for what you receive in return. A little longer wait than Pizza Hut or Papa John's, but that's not REAL pizza.\r
And by the way dawgfan1982, too much grease and cheese on a pizza? Are you kidding me? Stick with Domino's or Red Barron's freezer pizzas my friend. That will suit you just fine.
Pros: Excellent gourmet toppings, authentic New York taste
Cons: Longer wait than Pizza Hut, they charge for drink refills
