110-80 Queens Boulevard
Forest Hills, NY 11375
(718) 520-7601

Frankie & Joey's Pizzeria sits on what I think must be one of the most valuable spots on Queens Boulevard: right next to the Midway multiplex. Every time people want a quick bit to eat without fearing that they'll be late for their overpriced show, they're likely to consider Frankie & Joey's. Who needs advertising... or even a website?

And that's exactly why I went. I got home from work (late, as usual) and decided "screw it, I'm seeing a movie". I literally hadn't eat all day and figured, what better time than now to binge on a variety of pizza slices?

Frankie & Joey's is pretty new, having taken over from a previous pizza joint a couple of years ago, and they're relatively new looking. Note the word "relatively". This isn't a hard task, given that their closest competition is uber-generic J&D over on Austin or the uber-in-need-of-renovation-and-a-mop Sorisi right on Continental.

I chose to try the Plain slice, the Chicken slice, and the Ziti slice. And here's my opinion on all three: they tasted fine. Yep. Fine. And while they won't win any awards, I'd order any of them again. If any of them tasted bad, I'd tear them up like Kleenex at a snot party.

See, New York pizza, which I will place Frankie & Joey's squarely in the category of, can be bad (read: godawful), fine (read: good), or damn good (read: damn good). Fine means that when it's there, you'll eat it, be happy, and not complain. Frankie & Joey's is good for what it is, good New York pizza to suck down a few slices of with a soda before a movie while BSing with friends.

From now on, this will be my go-to Pizza place when waiting for a movie or if I happen to be walking by. (but my go-to place when I order a bunch of pies for poker night will be Lillian on 68th)

Live near the Queens Center mall and got it delivered once. Enjoyed it and have tried to order again several times, but won't deliver.

I'm not sure where you are located. We are on 71st and they deliver to us all the time!

Why is "FRANKIE & JOEY'S PIZZERIA" Closed?? looks like they skipped out on the rent

Best piece of real-estate in the area, yet nothing survives. It failed as Frankie and Joey's Pizze, it failed as Joanne's Pizza, the pet-shop didn't last, and even the Krispy-Kremem that was there closed it's doors. Face, this spot is cursed.
