Dear Slice, Letters From Our ReadersSac's Place in Astoria. Goin' there for lunch today with one friend. i can't download the menu b/c of some plug-in problem. Any recs?



Dear Chichi,

Probably avoid anything with too many toppings. Sac's is already a bit heavy on sauce and cheese and has some sogginess issues. Other than that, go for what you normally like on a pizza! Most people already have the knowledge of what to order contained within them!

See if you can split a whole pie cooked-to-order. Here's a photo of a Sac's Place pepperoni pie ...

Hasta la pizza,


Thanks, Adam! We'll go for a whole pie cooked to order, in the coal oven, I presume.



Yeah. I think they do all the pies in the coal oven. At least all the whole pies, but ask just to be sure.

I think they use the gas oven for reheats of slices from slice pies cooked in the coal oven. Weird system.

Happy chew year!
