There are three (3) 2 Bros Pizza locations in New York City.
All three offer two (2) slices of pizza and a can of soda for $2.75. That’s a meal my budget can afford.
The way they get away with offering their meals so inexpensively is by mass-producing and dealing in a high volume. The pizza shops are mobbed, but usually I can get a seat. Even if I can’t there’s a lot of counter space to eat while standing and then “jet”.
These are the locations:
- 32 St Marks Pl
btw 2nd & 3rd Ave
New York, NY 10003
- 601 Sixth Ave
btw 17th & 18th St
New York, NY 10011
- 542 9th Ave
at W 40th St
New York, NY 10018
The shop on St Marks Place is the best that I’ve tried. The pizza is consistently good. The only issues are: portion consistency and pizza temperature. Portion consistency is an issue in every pizza shop I’ve ever gone to. Someday someone, maybe me!, will invent a “Trivial Pursuit”-type stainless steel device that will cut pizza slices evenly, but until then you may end up with one gigantic slice and a tiny one.
I don’t really understand why the pizza temperature fluctuates so wildly. I guess it’s related to the spurts of business that prompt many pies to be cooked at once. This place does not reheat pizza. You order a slice, they cut off a slice. Food delivery is instantaneous.
The shop on 6th Avenue is within walking distance of one of the two movie theaters I use, but the pizza just doesn’t taste as good.
I have never gone to the shop near Times Square.
