This is a punk-rock pizza joint. Punk rock music blaring, and punk rock dudes staffing the place. On my last visit, the bouncer pushed me with his forearm as I tried to walk past. He wanted to see my ID. I was just trying to get by. He was talking to two of his punk rock friends who were blocking the door. This has happened every time I've been there. They go to see him, block the main entrance, as if nobody is going to walk in the front door. And why is there a bouncer at a pizzeria on a thursday night when there are only 10 people in the whole place? The bartenders are terrible--but they look the part: black t-shirts, black baseball caps on backwards, punk rock service. Which means ""bad service."" These guys work here to be seen, not because of any special talent or predisposition to hospitality. $1 slices? Yeah that brought me in more than once, but my on mh most recent (and my LAST) visit, the lukewarm pizza was served on a plastic disposable plate. It had the consistency of stale cardboard, and was just about burned on the bottom. But, what do you expect for a buck? Not much. The location on Broadway seems always packed, and lacks the poser punk staff. The staff there seemed genuinely friendly on my only visit to that location. At the Humboldt location, I have ALWAYS waited FOREVER to be acknowledged at the bar. On my first visit, there were more employees than customers in the place, and it still took me 10 minutes to get acknowledged. I eventually had to get off the stool, walk over to the group of employees who were standing around talking (to the bouncer) and ask them if they worked there. Ridiculous. It's not a place for good service, or pizza, but a good place to get ignored, or even pushed around.
Pros: $1 slices
Cons: slow service, punk rock attitude
