And Lou G. said, "Due to time constraints, I only had pepperoni pinwheel. There was a 15-minute wait until it's heated thoroughly. It's kind of salty for me. But the amount of mozzarella overwhelmed my sense of reality. I'll be back to try salad pies and stromboli."

Empire Pizza is open Friday and Saturday from 11am-11pm, and Sunday-Thursday from 11am-10pm.
