Over the last couple months I've become a regular. It has the best pizza in Portland by far, the crust is always right and they never skimp on toppings!

Old school, old fashioned pizza by the slice. It's my favourite pizza place in Portland. But they only take cash or checks, no cards.

One of my favorite pizza places. New York style pizza, not surprisingly... even a simple slice of cheese is excellent. Good dough, good sauce, good cheese. My favorite is the classic pepperoni. Simply delicious.

After a full breakfast earlier in the day, I was in no mood for stuffing myself for Lunch. I also didn't want table service. So my Jewish Deli experience at Kornblatt's next door would have to wait for another day. What this early afternoon situation called for was a slice of pizza, a beer, and a quick escape.

Considering the trendiness of 23rd Avenue and it's high per capital chain store population, Escape from New York Pizza was a refreshing neighbourhood joynt experience. And judging by the crowds inside this long and narrow shot gun of a pizza parlour, something has definitely been going right for all these years. And as Jen K. mentioned, service at this "same as it ever was" establishment was a neat combination of New York gruff and Portland polite.

Once I figured out how the line works here, I ordered a slice of Canadian Bacon and Pineapple and a pint of IPA. I then snagged a seat at the window to watch the world go by. My order was up quickly and it was a pleasure to enjoy my slice from a place that knows how to make an excellent crust. I was soon on my way and lightly full in the best way.
