Garlic knots alone are a reason to visit! One of the best Caesar salads I have had in years. And of course, great authentic NY style pizza.

Always loved J&S, and appreciate this newer Apex location (Fuquay one great too!) with more seating, tvs on wall, but the great food, great service, and having Josephine & Silvia always present and walking around gives the extra special Sicilian and NY (that's my heritage too) atmosphere. Pizza, pasta, desserts, zeppolis, garlic knots all super - try a "stuffed slice"... More

I've loved J&S Pizza for nearly 25 years. It's been wonderful to see this special family business grow and yet maintain the high standards for great-tasting, authentic NY-style pizza that they started with. A lot of Italian love goes into these pizzas!

As a former Road warrior, spending almost 30 years on the road, a good meal is always greatly appreciated. J&S is a family owned, Italian restaurant in Apex, and a 2nd place in Fuquay Varina. I have eaten at both and they are both EXCELLENT! As someone who was born in the NYC area, I know what GREAT NY Style... More

Quality of food was average. Price of food and drinks were way too high. Assume prices are to cover rent in new location.

My family ate here recently and everyone in our party was please with their dish. We had pizza, lasagna, and calazone. All of it was very good.

Stopped in around 30 minutes before closing, still full from lunch, just ordered a slice of cheese. The crust was paper thin but had a great taste. Cheese and sauce were doable. Not bad for a first visit. Will give it a second chance.

We got two xl pizzas. We had been told how good the crust was by another family member. I kid you not, the plain cheese crust could not be bitten and would have served well as a floor mat in an atv. The other, a white pie with pepperoni, was slightly better, though still unacceptably tough. The toppings, "meh". Perhaps... More

A long time ago, J&S had the best NY Style Pizza in the area (mid-to-late 1990s). Unfortunately, while they may still have amongst the best in the area, that does not necessarily mean it is great pizza. It just means that it is seriously difficult to find really good NY Style Pizza in/near Apex, NC. We've been hearing lots of... More
