The sign at Frank Pepe's Pizzeria Napoletana

The commotion, the huge ovens, the slicing methods and the ten-foot long pizza peels are truly sites to behold. If you're making a weekend trip and you don’t arrive by 11:30am (noon the latest) it’s doubtful that you’ll be eating during the first seating. In that case you may as well wait for the 4pm (2pm Sunday) opening of the adjacent original 1925 Frank Pepe’s location, now called The Spot. You may have to wait for someone to pull out of the guarded parking lot for a space. But hey, you’ll be there for the first seating.
