    Anyone ever eat at Pizza Junction?

    Just saw them on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.

    The Beef On Weck Pizza looks like typical American overkill, but I'd still try a slice.

    Re: Anyone ever eat at Pizza Junction?

    From what I understand Pizza Junction is closed. I never liked their pizza, way too much stuff on it. Their subs were outstanding though. I go for Bocce or Leonardi's, myself.

    Grew up walking distance from there. Played little league baseball almost across the street. Eaten there a lot. They closed. Sold out and re-opened. I think Dr. Lecter could tell you more. (My family sends updates from Tonawanda News at times).

    The best pizza in western New York. Hands down.


    That episode of Diners/Drive-ins was done quite a while back though.

    It has been closed for a few years. The owner's kid ran it into the ground. There is a place called Good Guy's that opened up about 10 years ago that is basically just like PJ. There is also a new place in the old Junction building.

    I work about half a mile from where Junction used to be. And about a mile from Good Guy's.

    We may have our preference concerning WNY pizza, but one thing is certain, at least for me. You can get a pie in Buffalo from just a neighborhood joint and it's twice as good as anything anywhere else. I lived in S. Florida, Houston and now Colorado and have never found anything close.

    I was a big fan of pizza junction but not for the pizza. The Steak and cheese subs were ridiculous. The taste! THE TASTE! and they were as big as my thigh.

    Re: Anyone ever eat at Pizza Junction?

    PJ was hit and miss for me, sometimes great, sometimes not so good. And there is that "too much of a good thing..." for their pizzas too at times.

    I've been looking for a place that does something called an Old Fashioned pizza or a sauce pie. Basically just sauce on dough with just a little bit of romano or parmesean cheese, but not too much sauce. DiCamillos currently does one that is the closest, but not every place does one and I don't want to buy a whole pizza to try it.

    When I was in college in Utica they called that a Tomato Pie. It was huge in the old time Italian places.

    I agree moonie. I live a 30 minute train ride from NYC and the pizza in Jersey and NYC is good but give me a slice from Main Street Pizza or the old Pontillos in Batavia any day.

    co-signed. People down here recommend pizza and I laugh and suppress the urge to slap them.

    The best. Royal sub was double everything. I could only eat a half at a time.

    Tailgate Deli at Deleware Rd. - Sheridan Dr. now wears the crown as the best Subs in town. Just amazing.

    You'd get a sub with double everything then only eat half? Think about that for a second.....

    I will second Dr. Lecter. They put so much meat on it, a regular sub looked like a double.

    I can't believe that place can stay in buisiness for how much stuff they put on their subs.

    Re: Anyone ever eat at Pizza Junction?

    I can't eat that much meat on a sub though. I could take a sub from the tailgate deli, take off half the meat for a second sub if I wanted and it STILL had more meat than most pizza joints.

    The only Pizza I've ever had that was comparable to the stuff I had in Buffalo was in Illinois, but otherwise ugh. Out west it's pretty rough that way.
