First of all to give you a little background about what some of my preferences are. First of all I prefer meat toppings full of porky goodness just the way God and Ron Swanson intended. Second, I tend to like thinner more traditional crust pizza over deep dish. Third, and here's where the Greek Tony's lunch experience comes into play, I almost never get pizza by the slice. In the past I've felt unsatisfied by just having 1 slice of pizza even if it was large in size. Pizza is an addiction for me and I can't eat just one. So when I walked into Greek Tony's and ordered the single slice of pepperoni I had my doubts about whether it could fill me up. That worry was assuaged quickly as soon as my slice arrived in front of me.
Good lawd this slice of pep was huge. You can get some idea of scale by comparing it to my knife and fork in the picture. I knew I wasn't going away hungry. Better than the portion size though was the taste. I love pizza when it's done like they do at Greek Tony's. The crust was the perfect combination of crusty on the very bottom yet soft and chewy when you bite in all the way. Also, I couldn't get over how plentiful the cheese was here. It was as much mozzarella piled on a pie as I've ever seen. The amount of pepperoni was adequate. The only drawback I would say was the sauce. There was so little of it in comparison to the cheese and pep that it was a little hard to even taste. I'm usually not a "there needs to be more sauce" guy, but here it is undeniable. I think it should only be considered a small glitch in otherwise pretty awesome slice.
I also wanted to say a few words about Greek Tony's itself. I absolutely love places that are throwbacks to an earlier age, and Greek Tony's looks like a place that hasn't changed in quite some time. When so much of Carmel looks new and fancy it's refreshing to see a place that doesn't fit that meme. They are located in an older building, they have years of collected hockey memorabilia on one wall and games for kids on the other like a truly old school pizza parlor. Hand written specials are on a white board behind the counter where orders are taken by an employee with a friendly face. I'm looking forward to a return trip, and If I can get myself away from the pizza I might have to try their Italian Beef.
Taste 9/10 I enjoyed this pizza by the slice as much or more than any I've had.
Value 9/10 A slice and a medium drink was just over 5 bucks. Considering the size of the slice and the quality of the product I'd call that pretty darn good.
