Pizza is ubiquitous in American culture, thanks solely to its ability to double as a fraction calculator. Indulge in a numerator with today’s Groupon: for $11, you get $22 worth of authentic New York–style pizza and drinks at Romeo’s New York Pizza in Johns Creek.
Since 1945, the growl hunters at Romeo’s New York Pizza have tackled talkative appetites with authentic New York–style pies made from house-made dough and fresh ingredients. Before taking in a movie at the neighboring Regal 18 cinema, patrons can hone their plot-guessing powers by guessing who will grab the last slice of a specialty pizza, such as the garlicky spinach and mushroom pizza, blanketed with enough cheese to form a new moon (16”, $18.95). Diners can also choose to custom-arrange a host of toppings—including pepperoni, sundried tomatoes, canadian bacon, and anchovies ($0.50–$1.90 each)—on a doughy canvas ($2.75+ for a slice; 16”, $13.75+) or inside of a hearty calzone ($7.95+). Pizza-free fare includes a chicken philly sub ($7.95), fried ravioli ($4.95), and wings served hot, mild, or still attached to an angel ($4.95–$16.95).
Romeo's New York Pizza
Pie slingers at Romeo’s New York Pizza twirl their ‘za from scratch, piling dough made in-house with red sauce and toppings such as garlic, ground beef, meatballs, and sundried tomatoes. The cozy neighborhood joint has purveyed New York–style pizza since 1945, when delivery boys first started using hovercrafts. Its unfussy menu includes hearty appetizers such as cheese bread or fried ravioli, alongside healthy salads in vegetarian or meaty iterations. Those who opt not to build their own pies can go in for one of three chef-crafted incarnations—margherita, spinach and mushroom, or vegetarian, sold by the slice or in 12-inch or 16-inch rounds.
