7 Star Pizza
Last week, I was excited to announce the re-opening of 7 Star(s) Pizza. I had a very tasty slice that day. I also ordered one of those (almost) jumbo 24 inch pizzas this past weekend too. Wasn’t as “cheesy” as the in-store slices, but was still good nonetheless. Had decent shelf-life (in the freezer) and re-heated well.
However, yesterday I had the Worst. Pizza. Ever.
Ordered a standard-size pie, with bacon. I’ve never eaten a “bad” slice of bacon in my life. Until yesterday. Hell in Hoboken.
I expect pizza with bacon to have crispy little bacon pieces on it. What I got from these dopes was practically raw FULL SLICES of bacon on the pie. Looked like worms. I’m certain they put RAW bacon on the pizza, then baked it. It was the worst and most difficult thing on earth to eat. Number 1, the bacon was chewy, limp and not tasty. Number 2, trying to pick up a slice just resulted in ALL THE TOPPINGS falling off. Number 3, when trying to remove the bacon, it just took all the damn cheese with it. I ended up actually eating only 2 pieces. I threw the rest out.
I was so mad at one point I threw a slice at the wall and punched my toaster oven. Thank god my dog was on vacation for the afternoon, as he’d probably soil my home after seeing the rampage I went on.
Worst ever, and I’m not kidding. Not sure how many of you like bacon on your pizza, but NEVER do it at 7 Star(s).

Breaking Pizza News! They re-opened yesterday (exactly 15 months to the day since they had closed).
I had a giant plain slice ($2.25), and I have to say it was better than I remember. Quite good, actually! A very decent value for the money. On Fridays and Saturdays they’re open till 5:00am! I had asked the owner about the extra “S”, and from what I gathered from the conversation, it was a bit of a mistake, that they just ran with.
Welcome back, 7 Star(s)!
Construction plods along, and they installed what may be the largest sign for pizza in Hoboken.
The extra “S” in “7 Stars Pizzeria” could be a few things:
- New ownership, keeping much of the previous namesake.
- A dopey error made by the sign shop.
- Where the “Last S” from 1-800-Mattres went.
- Where the missing “s” from Mayor Robert(s) letter to 411 went.
Was strolling by last week, and asked again when they should be open.. they guy on site mentioned “two months”. I guess the HATT was right last month when it said “2 or 3 months.”
Here’s a recent picture. It no longer resembles a fire-hazard pizza shack.
Stopped by yesterday to notice some “action” going on here at 7 Star pizza.
I inquired with one of the guys at the site, and they hope to be re-opening “in a month”. Plugging that phrase into the “Hoboken Actual Time Translator” (HATT for short), outputted the answer: “2 or 3 months”. Perhaps it’ll be wrong this time.
5/6/2006 Update: They seem to be closed for "renovations". Hopefully they'll renovate the taste as well.
The picture is about as blurry as my vision is when I typically eat there!
