The Best Pizza..PERIOD!!! – I have been going to Gaby's Pizza all of my life. I can honestly say after eating Gaby's you will not want to eat Pizza Hut, Dominos or any of those other commercial pizza spots. The pizza that is prepared there is as fresh as can be. The sausage taste like sausage and it doesnt have that processed taste. For the 20 plus years I have been eating there I can honestly say that I have not once gotten sick.
People who have come to visit me and my family from out of state have loved Gaby's Pizza. They always get upset that Gaby's is not where they live. Even if you look on Gaby's Facebook page, you will see people who use to live in the neighborhood and now live out of state saying how much they miss Gaby's. I brought my sister-in-law who lives in Tucson, Arizona to Gaby's, she loved it so much I have to have a pie shipped to her overnight.
I look around this page and it really upsets me with how I see people are finding excuses of what's wrong with Gaby's food, the location, the staff or whatever they can find. If you have an issue with how the crust is made, just tell the staff how you like your crust and they will be glad enough to make it to your liking. That is part of the responsibility that goes along with being the Best Pizza in NY, making sure the customer is satisfied.
I can go on for hours about Gaby's, in a nutshell don't listen to all of the negative remarks that have been posted, listen to someone who has been going to Gaby's since day one and who knows what GREAT PIZZA is all about!
Gaby's Pizzeria the Best in the United States – Gaby's Pizza is the best with numerous trophys displayed. I have flown all the way from Alaska to enjoy the pizza and today (Monday I am ordering two large pizza's (whole wheat) FROM NEW YORK TO ALASKA. They will ship and freeze the pizza for you. It will arrive on Wednesday. I can't wait to sink my teeth into the pizza. Alaska's pizza taste like half cooked 'sour dough' and gummy bread with fake cheese, (Alaska is not known for good food). I will never order any pizza from anywhere else in the world, except from Gaby's. I'm a vegetarian and Gaby's pizza is good for us vegans. GREAT JOB GABY, YOU HAVE A PERMANENT AND SATISFIED CUSTOMER.
Vegans Not Welcome Here – I bought garlic bread today at Gabiy's and took it home. The bread was good, so I ate it. By the time I almost finished it, i realized there was muzzarela cheese inside the bread.
As a vegan, I have had to buy garlic bread at pizza and ilalian restaurants. I've had garlic bread in dozens of places around queens. But never before at Gaby's. No other place I've been to puts cheese in their garlic bread.
I complained about this to Louis, the manager. He said everyone likes cheese in garlic bread. I said why not posta sign warning vegans? He hung up on me.
if you're a vegan, stay away.
There is no pizza like Gaby's Pizzeria – I have been living in southwest Florida for 12 years and all these places down here that say "New York style pizza" have nothing to what Gaby's have. Even though I prefer a fresh hot pizza but if Gaby's was to ever ship their pizza out of state...I will pay whatever the cost. They have best quality in food and loyalty to their customers. When I crave for pizza, it's a struggle to find which pizzeria can please that craving. Gaby's if you ever read these reviews...KEEP DOING A GREAT JOB AND I HOPE ONE DAY YOU CAN SHIP PIZZA OUT OF STATE!
Simply The Best.. Better then all the Rest – I've been coming to Gaby's for years and i cannot find one complaint from there. The service is outstanding and the Food is always fresh and consistent. Other Pizzaria's cannot even come close to the taste that Gabys has. Gabys truly is number ONE and that why i recommend it to everyone!!!
Best In NY – Gaby's Pizzeria is the best in New York. I live a good distance from the restaurant and I still find myself passing all these other pizza stores just to get to theirs. If you haven't tried Gaby's...what are you waiting for get over there.....VERY DELICIOUS
Taste is nothing without service. – The food is fine. BUT The service can be rude and snotty. All the male owners are wonderful and very friendly. However, there is a poor excuse for a lady who answers the phone on the weekends and she is very nasty. She has no patience and seems anything but happy for your business. So if you order on Sunday.. go in and pick it up. She's not worth your phone minutes. No matter how great the food is, if the help is hostile..its not a good experience.
No comparison... – To the person that compares Gaby's to Domino's Pizza - ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND?! To compare Gaby's to Domino's is crazy! I live in Manhattan, but my husband used to live in Hollis. From the first time that I tasted Gaby's, I was truly hooked. There was only one other pizza place in Manhattan that tasted just as good and unfortunately they are no longer there. They were "Pizza Town" on Broadway and 114th street. Gaby's is by far great. I have never had a rude experience. The sauce on the pizza is sweet; the crust crispy (if you want it that way) or just right. Everytime we go visit my mother-in-law, we look at each other and ask 'Gaby's'? Hands down, they are fabulous.
Reviewing the reviews.... – i noticed a couple of bad reviews about Gaby's and im thinking... "are you smoking something illegal?" Gabys IS the best pizza anywhere. YES i grew up nearby and YES im biased but guess what? when people come and visit me from Cali, from Chicago and from Miami, not to mention my freinds from the 4 boroughs (i dont know any1 in staten isl.) and long island, they all agree its the best they've ever had. Most queens village/hollis residents will tell you there freinds from abroad visit them and the first thing they ask is "can you take me to that pizzeria you took me to last time?" NO, the slices are not mini, they are normal napolitan pizza size, like MOSt everywhere else. Some places in brooklyn make extra large slices (pies cut in 6 not 8) with flimsy crust and scarcely sprinkled cheese. (no disrespeect to brooklyn) but this is not the norm and not to be compared with truly tasty pizza. Yes, the sauce is sweeter than most and i think thats a good thing, but that really is a matter of personal preference. Anyone reading this review, i recomend ordering a sicilian slice (some of you know them as "squares") . i personally never liked sicilian slices except for Gaby's and there i cant get enough.
Best Pizza I Have Ever Had – This is the place my family used to get pizza at when I was little living in Jamacia, NY. Now that I live 4 hours away in upstate NY, when ever we come into the area we try to stop for the best pizza we have ever had. I have been living in upstate NY for over 20 years, and never have been able to find pizza nowhere near as good.
