I haven't tried the NYC Pizza but heard great things about it - I need to get out there myself.
They still have several locations in Missouri. There was one in Springfield last time I was there and several in Kansas City. Maybe they are just franchise stores.Originally posted by quincy101:
BTW, Chris- I really liked Godfather's too but it went bankrupt several years ago.
For Chicago deep dish, I agree.Originally posted by TU BB Goldenboy:
Savastano's, hands down
I finally tried it on a weekend a mont or so ago. Place was dead, pizza was decent, but nothing special. I don't see that place lasting very long.Originally posted by t-townpod:
Yes, no good if you ask me.
Thanks for posting that info, Steve. Very cool. If you don't mind me asking, where is the Selvaggi family originally from? I also incorrectly assumed Nick was related.Originally posted by hotterthanyourhusbandTU:
Thanks for the kind words regarding Mario's NY Style Pizzeria.
My wife (Elisa Selvaggi-Burkett) and her mother (Salley Selvaggi) own and run the 2 locations since Michael Selvaggi's passing.
Michael never had a son...many customers initially think Nick (the BA shop manager) is Mike's son. Elisa loved her father at immeasurable levels. She and her Mom work extremely hard to make Michael proud.
They love the company. They "do it the right way for the right reasons".
It's nice to hear all of the hard work is paying off!
My wife (Elisa) typically works all day Saturday at the Broken Arrow location (71st and Elm). Stop by, have some pizza...and say "Hi"...!!!

The Selvaggi family is originally from Naples, Italy.
Elisa's (my wife's) parents are from the New York City area.
Michael Selvaggi moved to Tulsa to attend Spartan. He was actually a very successful auto mechanic (he owned his own auto shop) while concurrently running Mario's.
Unfortunately, none of this information will help Cody Green become a good passer!
