Pizza Review: Mary's Pizza
Mary's has two locations--one in Massapequa, the other in the dingy hamlet of Islip Terrace. The Islip Terrace location is in the Terrace Plaza Shopping Center, a strip mall that has all the warm, fuzzy ambience of a Bronx ghetto.
"Voted 'One of the Best' Pizzas on Long Island" the box and telephone listing boast. For 1999. Someone needs to buy them a damn calendar. The pizza is decent but is notorious for its lack of cheese. To get the same amount of cheese you'd get at any other place, you'll have to order extra, which puts the price at $13.55.
The squalor of the dilapidated exterior of the shop and its environs are surpassed only by the filthy, repellant interior. And considering the various body parts of the staff that are pierced, one seriously has to wonder about the sanitariness of the product.
But, hey, if you're willing to spend $13.55 on a plain pizza, risk the damage to your car driving over the myriad potholes in the parking lot, and put up with the idiot teenagers who serve you, then, enjoy.
