Ever since Tony Baiamonte took-over running Boston's Gourmet Pizza, on Fischer Boulevard, in Toms River, it has become MY home away from home!

Hey Barry how many drinks before you typed this? This place is a CRAP HOLE. Lousy cardboard pizza at high prices. Looks like someone repossessed their sign, the same week the electric company cut them off.

Hey, So Much to Say, I'm just trying to be fair, is all. Tony Baiamonte was asked to take-over the business by the Boston's corporate office, in Dallas, Texas. Tony OWNS that corner (Fischer Blvd. & Hooper Avenue). He leases to Boston's. The franchise is in trouble. BIG trouble! So, I see changes in the way the place operates. That's all. Just trying to be fair. The electric company (JCP&L) cut them off because the former manager, Jerry R. (no longer wiith the franchise) embezzled money. To answer YOUR question, though: No drinks. I wrote MY post cold, stone sober.

Just trying to be fair and honest....The place is horrible, the pizza is nasty and high priced. Didn't Tony Baiamonte get caught with his hand in the till when he owned Mugsy's. Remember he had to dump Mugsy's because he didn't pay vendors and taxes. So it looks like nothing good comes from that corner.

Boy, a LOT of barflies on this board, huh? Only five (5) lousy comments. I don't mind IF The Miracle Pub or The Office Lounge wins this particular category (I voted FOR Boston's, but THAT'S only because I live near there, and it's easily within stumbling distance of my abode). ANYPLACE, but The Spot. I used to frequent THAT high-end boite (Four bucks for a pint of Miller Lite!!). Plus, the place is SO unfriendly!! They think that they're doing you a favor by waiting on you, there! Plus, the bartenders ignore you as a paying customer, and DO their college homework (that they SHOULD have done the night before, on THEIR time), while YOU wilt of thirst on your barstool. 'Ya think I'm kidding? NOT!!!
