Comments: Grimaldi’s is known for their long wait in line, cash only, brick oven pizzas. I came on a chilly night in December around 7pm,and to my delight there wasn’t a line!

The antipasto is what it is, there’s nothing particularly impressive about any of the components. Skip it if you don’t need it!

I LOVE anything cheesy and creamy so I preferred the white over the regular. I also LOVE meat! As you may have noticed, I picked all the meat toppings that they offered.

The first two slices I had (one of each flavour) were really YUM! The garlic and jalapeño really enhanced the flavours and added a kick! But by the third slice the pizza had became cold and the yummy-ness significantly dropped 😦

Conclusion: Overall I really enjoyed the pizza while it was still warm. Now that I know what all the hype is about, I would wait no longer than 15 minutes in line for this.

I heard Juliana’s (which is next door) serves equally good/better pizzas and they’re using Grimaldi’s original brick oven!
