My father was born and raised in what he calls "the tiny town of Brooklyn." Since settling in San Diego, the man has forever been on a search for a taste of home. He loved Bronx Pizza, but when one of the pizza makers, Mike, opened up a pizza place closer to Dad's office, my father has been in pizza heaven. Like any preacher spreading the good word, Dad is eager to introduce friends and family to Long Island Mike's, (on Murphy Canyon just south of Clairemont Mesa Blvd. and west of I-15) because the guy in the kitchen talks with a New York accent, and the pizza is the same price per slice, regardless of what toppings are added. Today my sister, David, and I joined Dad yet again, for a couple of slices and Dad's stories about the state he never wants to move back to, but refuses to let go of.

Here's a peek inside the joint:

You know you will get comments on this one. From a native Long Islander I have yet to try this place but I will venture there tomorrow. But the best New York style that I have had in San Diego is Luigis in Golden Hill the best pizza hands down but not quite New York style is Mazaras in South Park. Of course we will never get true New York style unless you import New York water to make it with.

update: I ventured over to Long Island Mike's today. I was actually disappointed. The cheese was not greasy enough and the pizza was not floppy enough to be called NY style in my book. It was good pizza, just not the best NY style in town. I will give Bronx pizza a try but until then Luigis still number one in my book

Milos Pizza is my favorite N.Y. Pizza. The giant 20' with cheese and garlic is orgasmic. Their sub sandwiches are great too.I've had so much bad pizza from Papa Johns, Pizza Hut, and Dominos that they can't even pay me to eat their pies. Once I tried Milos, I was hooked.
