I’ve been a big fan of Joey’s on the Beach since the first time I entered about a year and a half ago. So what makes it the best pizza on the beach? It’s the crust, no the sauce, wait, no it’s the cheese… It’s just good! The crust is made from home made dough and hand tossed. The sauce is home made from fresh delicious ingredients. The cheese is high quality and the toppings are fresh.
Each made to order pizza is prepared with plenty of fresh ingredients and a generous amount of your favorite toppings and the pizzas are much larger than the average pizza place.
My favorite topping is meatball but Joey’s offers everything imaginable so make sure you ask for your favorite, even if you don’t see it on the menu. Every Thursday the restaurant celebrates “gourmet Thursdays” with an advertised slice special that is very popular among the local patrons.
If you have ever been to New York City you have surely walked into one of the many small pizza restaurants scattered about with pre-cooked cheese pizza and a couple of other varieties to choose from. They will gladly add more toppings to your slice or two and toss it back into the pizza oven and you have a meal in just minutes. This is how I tend to enjoy my Joey’s pizza. A slice of cheese with meatball, mushrooms and extra cheese plus a soda costs me about $7.50 after tax and tip and is ready for me in about five minutes.
Though best known for their pizza, it’s not the only thing on the menu and far from it. There are also an assortment of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, wraps, calzones, pasta dishes priced from $6 to $10 and authentic italian dinner entrees such as eggplant parmigiana for just $12 (I had this and it was delicious and very generously portioned) Chicken dishes for $13-$14, veal dishes for $14-$15 and much more. The dinner entrees come with a side of pasta and scrumptious garlic knots.
There are also a few dessert items. I had the cannoli and loved it and the New York cheesecake looks decadent!
