Though Indian Church Road sounds like the location of a postal office in an 1870s prospecting town in West Seneca, it’s home to a pizzeria laying a hefty claim as the shop to represent the entirety of the Great Lakes region. Having visited most of that region myself, I can comfortably say that 99% of the competition for that title is in their backyard (shout-out to the …

We’re out in East Aurora today, friends, and can you believe it? We’re not here to buy a $40 scented candle or find a new farm share despite the shabby look of my kohlrabi last week. I had heard the legends were true and can now verify that if you squint in just the right light peering across the T.J. Maxx parking lot, you can find a hint of grit in this town. Make sure…

Slinging slices since 1957, La Nova, Spanish for “The Nova,” is a storied Buffalo pizza institution that should be one of your first merit badges on the quest to catch ‘em all. If you’re an off the wagon vegan or a rookie to the slice game who has somehow dodged the lifelong onslaught of La Nova pizza, I suggest you leave the house and eat some, if only for the sake of cou…

Harfing down pepperoni pizza in spanking new formalwear doesn’t have to be an activity isolated to your arraignment. It was big news to me when the man in the top hat passed me a slice, so I’m spreading the word as it was spoken so you can indulge outside the usual parameters, as nostalgic as that annual “drunk and disorderly” at the Buffalo Bills game may be. Living wi…

We’re off to New York, kids. The Big Onion. The trendy borough of West Seneca to be exact. Surprisingly we’re not here to build condos, cocktail bars and candle shops. We’re on board this train for a taste of the old country at Ferro’s Famous NY Pizza. A true slice shop with eight or so pies lying seductively in wait behind the steamy glass (Lord have mercy), once yo…

Welcome to Kenmore. Land of people claiming to live in the city but actually just 'burbing it up like their parents before them (come at me, Kenmore). Today we’re at TC Jr’s, which in true Buffalo fashion has no relation whatsoever to TC Wheelers in Tonawanda. To whoever said Buffalo wasn’t big enough for two TCs, don’t you feel like a fool now? If you’ve ever imagin…

Stare into the cheese and pepperoni Rorschach and tell me what you see. Love? A spark of joy? Pride and power are also acceptable answers, Junior, but we’re not working on daddy issues until we’re four slices deep. Lovejoy Pizza – with two locations, including one in a neighborhood on the edge of Sloan – is a fitting name for a pie of passion, and it's clawing its way i…

A lesser-known notch in the screaming slice belt bolstering South Buffalo’s ballooning pizza gut, Artone’s has been a neighborhood staple. Originally opening as a submarine shop known for its steak hoagie nearly 50 years ago, it later added pizza and began cranking out the regional style for years, albeit under different ownership and through brief periods of closure.

Hi, I’m @SexySlices and I am on a quest. Yes, a quest. There’s no dragons or wizards, and in all humility not much magic, but by definition definitely a quest. Look it up. Just setting expectations in advance so you can’t blame me when the elves don’t show up by the third review. That’s on you, bud. Since 2015, I’ve been anonymously documenting my quest to rank all the …
