Hole-in-wall New York
Why locals love it
Some places claim to serve 'Colorado' style pizza- a wierd notion referencing pies with toppings loaded up on a thick wheaty crust, often dipped in honey. These are enjoyable occassionally, but far from authentic. Famous Pizza is not one of these places. Here the hand-stretched, thin-crust New York style reigns supreme.
Why you should visit it
Made fresh and generously layered with quality ingredients, Famous Pizza's pizza is famous for good reason. As the name suggests pies are their specialty, though they also make resepectable chicken wings, salads and sandwiches on 'home-baked bread' (which really means pizza dough). Baked spaghetti also makes an appearance every Tuesday.
If pizza doesn't suit your mood, try the calzone -one of Denver's best- available at all times. They also deliver.
