Hoosick Pizza

This restaurant sells bargain pizza (among other things); a large cheese pizza for $4.00 (carryout) sounds too good to be true, and of course it is. As I say, it’s bargain pizza, which means you can definitely get better quality elsewhere. Much better, in fact, although of course at a price. I’m not bashing Hoosick Pizza outright; it’s great to be able to eat for cheap, but dearth of cash (and/or stinginess) is really the only reason to choose this pizza over the many better options available. Hoosick Pizza serves as a good “emergency” pizza place, but that’s about it. Still, when you get into a pizza emergency, you’ll thank them. Postscript – After a few more visits to Hoosick Pizza, my opinion of their pizza itself has not changed, but I have discovered a good alternative order: the falafel. It’s very tasty, neither skimpy nor overfilling, and for a measly $2.99, a righteous bargain. I recommend it without reservation.

Comments on Hoosick Pizza

getting a falafel sandwich, grape leaves, gyro, and soda to your door until 3am is rare in most cities, the yogurt sauce is great, the pita is fresh, and they have vintage video games at the store itself. If it were gone it would be missed.

The best chicken wings i’ve had in my entire life. During exam week i ordered their 24 wings and lg cheese special almost daily. Hoosick rocks! Gotta love that thunderbird tip!

The one thing me and my roommates noticed during our stay in Troy is that since we order from them entirely too many times a week (we were poor and they were 4 buildings away from our place)was that if you ordered enough that they knew you, there was an increase in quality. Of course, we generally only got the 4 dollar pizza twice a week, the rest of the time getting things such as gyros (damn tasty) and wings (survivable).

Hoosick Pizza is owned by wonderful people who are friendly. It’s amazing to get pizza this cheap, and perfect for those of us with little money. If we continue to support them they will continue to sell pizza at reasonable prices.

They are great for Greek food fast, and things are real fresh.

their breadsticks are really good. the pizza is okay; worth 50 cents a slice (if you get the $4 large pick-up special).

Their pizza is alright (not bad, not too special), but their wings are no good. The sauce is very, well, unusual, as was the bleu cheese. The meat seemed pretty tough and dry. If you want good wings in Troy, you’re stuck with Gino’s (pretty good), but if you’ve got a car, check out Dom’s Pizza in Latham, at Rte 9 & Boght Rd, about a 10 minute drive from RPI.

I’ve been eating there for 1.5 years. Their gyro and veggie pizza are good. If you are polite then they are more polite to you.

I thought the pizza ah Hoosick was pretty good, especially considering the price. The crust was fairly bland, though, so I generally don’t order there unless there’s some sort of budgetary crisis.

The pizza at Hoosick Pizza is definitely not t·tty, but some of the other items are good, and everything is hella cheap, man.

The pizza I had here was excellent. It’s Greek pizza, that’s why people seem unhappy with the place – they’re probably just accustomed to Italian/American pizza. Try the stuffed grape leaves… and they have cheap but pretty good baklava too.

I ordered the falafel at the suggestion of the postscript and I must agree – it is delicious! I ordered the spinach pie as well, to round out the $10 delivery minimum, and it too was great. I will be ordering from them again and again…

They are good people, always putting the customer first. I have been eating there for about a month and they started giving me discounts! I always get the chicken cutlet or the veggie sub, their best. Give them a chance, and also try their veggie pizza, it’s top notch ($15, worth it).

Oh, come on, they aren’t that bad. It’s not exactly the cuisine that reigns supreme, but come on. They are dirt cheap, do free delivery, and are one of the few places open to 2AM that accept major credit cards. Give ‘em a chance, but don’t be expecting Lo Porto or anything. It’s okay cheap college food.

They are awful; I will never go back.
