    new pizza place

    Anyone tried this new pizza place (New York style pizza) in Ames that is owned by Shaban Dika's family. Not many places to get authentic New York style around here.

    Re: new pizza place

    He had a place in Marshalltown for awhile. It was a lot of food for the price and pretty tasty as well. I think I still have a gift card for there - I wonder if he'll take it for his new place in Ames ;).

    His problem in Marshalltown was the bad location.

    I had it at work when they brought a bunch in. Pizza was pretty decent, but I really liked the pasta that comes with jalapenos.

    Re: new pizza place

    I love some NY-style pizza. I'll check this place out next time I visit. That might not be until the youth volleyball camps this summer though. =(

    Until they discover a way to transmit smell over the internet, there will be no internet M'Town bashing that hasn't been done before.

    Re: new pizza place

    Wow how have I never heard of this. Ordering one asap. $12.95 for an 18" pizza and 1.50 for toppings per topping for that is a pretty good deal.

    Jeffs Pizza in Ames would be closer to $16.00 and $2.00 per topping for am 18". (about halfway between their 16" and 20")

    or CR bashing. That city only smells good when they're making crunchberries.

    I honestly don't notice it anymore. Except when I'm on the west side... smells like flood, mold and penford.

    Joe's Pizza is a little difficult to find because they don't have a big sign. It is between West Towne Pub and Jimmy John's, right behind the Kum & Go station at Mortenson and Dakota. We are really glad that they are in Ames so that we don't have to drive to M-town for their pizza.
