Benny Tudino’s

3/7/2008:

Another sign our economy is having trouble.

Famed Benny Tudino’s recently raised the price of a single plain slice from $2.50 to $3.00!

I’m going to go back to making my Hoboken411 scrumptious personal pies again.

Just because this place has the “biggest slice in Hoboken” does not make it a pleasant place to eat, unless you’re drunk out of your mind and don’t care about their arrogance. This place has let the hype get to their heads. The staff is rude as FUCK and probably wouldn’t even smile if you paid them too. Yes, most are from Italy but then again, I have been to Italy several times and they too are arrogant and rude and customer service is very low on their list of priorities. Sure, if you’re blonde, tall and cute, they will whip you up a fake smile to try and get into your pants but that’s about it. Their pizza by the way is tasty but the fat/grease just drips right off it. Fattening as HELL. They can take their smug attitude and shove it up their Italian asses. I am 50% Italian (biological father was born and raised in Venice) so for me to say this, you need to know I mean it fiercely. Pffft.
ps. They have some BALLS asking $4.50 for a SLICE of Pizza!

I guess you have no problem recognizing Italians.

The whole family and most of the workers are Albanians[quote comment=”215713″]Just because this place has the “biggest slice in Hoboken” does not make it a pleasant place to eat, unless you’re drunk out of your mind and don’t care about their arrogance.

Havent been to this place in years. Last time I walked in it was a Saturday afternoon and everybody behind the counter was watching the Yankee game. After waiting 5 minutes for somebody to turn around I walked out. When they saw I was leaving they asked where I was going I told them Giorgio’s..[quote comment=”215713″]Just because this place has the “biggest slice in Hoboken” does not make it a pleasant place to eat, unless you’re drunk out of your mind and don’t care about their arrogance.

Something pretty wrong here midtownauthentic. In the Carlo’s Bake shop thread you’re rather rah rah and happy for the tourist to see shops and buy here with no mention of how the cake might taste. Now with Benny’s you tell of greasy and spongy pizza and how you prefer frozen. You stated your a local businessman. What is it you sell–bullsh!t?

Just because you have the biggest slice does not mean you have the best slice. Some previous posters have said that the pie is greasy and spongy and bland and I have to agree. I prefer frozen elio’s myself

If your preference is for frozen Elio’s, do you really expect anyone to take your critique of Benny’s seriously?

There is a certain amount of charm to “school lunch” pizza. If you burn it in the toaster oven just right, it is fantastic. But not sure I would call it a good pizza.

ha ha, you snuck an extra pizza home after school too? I had friends who hate the school cafeteria pizza… paid them 25 cents if they let me have it. Back then, lunch cost 65 cents.

Man, I miss those pizzas. We had it every other Friday. If someone opens a pizza place with school pizza, I’ll be very very happy. How do you even get the recipe for that?

I think you missed my point, Elio’s is pretty darn close to school lunch pizza. It has the same shape, same crust & almost (but not quite) same taste as what they used to feed us. And if you over cooked just enough, the cheese burns just perfectly.

At our school pizza day was every Friday, but starting in HS you could also get it a la carte daily. One of the advantages of going to a HS the size of the Hoboken school system was a la carte dining. Any time you wanted pizza instead of whatever crummy sandwich you made for yourself, you could go get a slice for 75c.

Benny’s took a while to grow on me, but now I like it. At first I found the sauce too sweet.
