This place is a dive in the best possible way. It is the restaurant that you look for when you visit a city and want to go “where the locals go.” It has been ingrained in my family for at least 50 years. My parents went there in high school. I have been going for as long as I can remember. And now my daughter associates any pizza with “Tony’s Pizza?” It is like that with families all around the Atlantic City Area, which is what makes it great.
The pizza is why everyone goes to Tony’s, but their spaghetti & meatballs, roast beef sandwiches and fried shrimp are all pretty good too. The pizza has a unique taste that I haven’t found anywhere else. It is not gourmet thin crust pizza, although I am a fan of that style too, but it is fantastic in it’s own way.
