Pizza overload in Hoboken?

4/19/2010:

Too many? Or not enough good ones?

Did you know that two downtown Hoboken pizza places are are currently for sale?

It’s hard for me to understand, how selling pizza (the perfect food according to my God at least) – wouldn’t be a top-notch money making operation in Hoboken. Especially downtown, where each weekend thousands of drunk & hungry bar patrons stumble around town looking for grub to eat (and eventually hurl back onto the street).

Marissa’s Pizza (100 Hudson St.) has an ad up – and is looking for $139,000 – while Rome Pizza (20 Hudson Place) has had an offer out there I believe since the day they opened. Rome is looking for $249,000 for their joint.

Is it just bad pizza or slice overload in Hoboken?

Marissa’s pizza is the worst. When a ten year old boy comes to your door delivering pizza for his no doubt lazy parent or guardian that doesn’t care to get out of the car, then it pisses me off. To make matters worse, the kid didn’t have enough cash to make change for a twenty, no doubt a ploy to make me feel sympathy for the little guy causing me to say “nah keep the change.” Tough rocks, kiddo. I’d call child services but I’m hoping to first learn that i’m not the only one who’s seen this.

bottom line…way too much competition in Hoboken, so they wanna sell out i guess.

I don’t understand why both Rome and Marissa’s want to sell out now when both are still newish — didn’t the owners conduct due diligence before getting involved? I’m wondering what they have stumbled on that they didn’t expect to stumble on.

Also doesn’t Marissa’s not have a bathroom because it’s zoned as retail or something? What happens if you’re in there and you have to take a crap?

They don’t have a bathroom? Where do the people that work there go??

They want to get what they can while they can. They probably didn’t expect to stumble on customers with taste buds.

Being a delivery person must suck. People mainly call you because it’s the type of day that they don’t wont to go out into. Tips must vary widely, and even if the tip is minuscule they have to keep a big smile on their face or risk a complaint. Getz76 you are setting a fine example, I salute you and your tipping sensibilities!

We wont recognize each other but I’m sure I will see you at the Castle.
