Well, I voted for Papa John's STRICTLY out of duress! Simply put, you CAN'T get good pizza in Ocean County, NJ. You're better off going to a supermarket, and getting frozen pizza. Something about the water that we USE, here. At least, THAT'S what my Eye-talian friends tell me!!

What is "Eye-talian" supposed to mean?

Papa John's??? Have you tried Maruca's? Floyd's? Charlie's? Klee's? Any of them are better then Papa John's. I'm from North Jersey and the pizza there is great and I thought there was no hope down here...until I tried Maruca's....best I've ever had!

papa johns? so not real pizza! good cheesy bread tho. haha. we just moved down to the area a few months ago and i hit marucas after hearing so much about it....i didnt like it at all. we moved over by holiday city and after trying most of the pizzerias near there, we have settled on joey d's pizza. the pizza is comparable, if not better, than most of the pizza i have had up north. and its not just the pizza....everything is really good. they have a great menu.

Capone's grandma's pie is great! Very garlicky and the crust is perfect!

Definately Charlies! Granted I haven't tried them all since I moved here, but Charlies is def the best of what I've tried (and I don't need to try any others now)!
