Cititour Review:
When my friend Sue told me about a place selling pizza for 99 cents, I almost didn't believe her (especially since she said every time she had it it was in the early morning hours after a night of drinking). So, one day, when she was sober, I made her take me there and sure enough there is a shop selling slices for 99 cents. It's called "99 Cent Pizza." Now, that's a catchy name. And best of all, the pizza is pretty darn good. The pies have a solid crust, not too thin, with just the right amount of sauce and mozzarella cheese. OK, so it's not href="http://cititour.com/NYC_Eats/listings/view_details.php?eats_id=1709">Di Fara's or href="http://cititour.com/NYC_Eats/listings/view_details.php?eats_id=1528">Otto's, but it is well worth the price. In fact, it's a downright steal considering some places are commanding $2.25 to $2.50 for a regular slice, and $3.50 if they slap on the name "Grandma's."

Think of it as the Gray's Papaya of pizza.
The storefront sits on the corner of 41st Street and Ninth Avenue. And there's really not much to it. No seating, just a few workers behind windows dishing out slices by the dozens.

I think 99 Cent Pizza is quite a concept. Wouldn't every neighborhood like one? And I'm sure they're still able to make a profit by selling in bulk.

But there is a downside. It's in a not-so-hot location (probably for a low rent). The restaurant is literally inches away from the entry ramp to the Lincoln Tunnel. It's also pretty close to a homeless mission which means you may face some panhandling.

But for a buck a slice, you should have some change to spare!
