This no frills NY style pizza place serves a killer pizza by the slice, with lots of variations for you to try. There are a few tables inside the little, open shop. Just outside the door are a couple of tables, in a lovely and large grass courtyard. And you're across the PCH from the ocean. I'm a particular fan... More

Custom made East Coast Pizza - like one really does get on the East Coast - fresh ingredients, no problems with special orders, never been disappointed. Go there at least once every 5-8 weeks

I have been to East Coast Pizza a few times. I suggest sticking with the " by the slice" deals they have. We ordered a whole pie, mushroom and sausage. The crust was not cooked properly-soft and lacked flavor.

Love that you can walk in, select from what they have available (may options) and then they warm it up so the crust is nice and crunchy. It's a nice size and you can get 2 slices and a drink for $6. My boys love it!

Really can't beat their lunch deal. 2 Slices and a soda for $6. Might be good for dinner too. Just don't know if they offer it at that time. The pizza is really good too. It's thin crust, which I normally don't like, but it's actually really good.

I'm a Jersey Girl who loves a good pizza. East Coast does not disappoint. And their 2 slice/drink special can't be beat.

I keep walking by this place and finally stopped in for a couple oven warmed slices. I have another favorite pizza place further south but I live in Encinitas, and this is by far the best place in the area. Blaze Pizza and Flipp'n pizza are not even close. The pizza is thin but not flappy and soggy, and the... More

Husband and I were tired after a long day and wanted something simple and low key. Stopped in here and got a big slice of pizza and drink for $6 a piece. Good price and the pizza was really good. The shop is really small with just enough room to buy your food but there was seating outdoors at a... More

Fast delivery, good food. They delivered our pizzas to the pool. Slices are big, families might ask them to cut smaller slices if there are younger kids

So I am a self-professed pizza connoisseur. I have lived in SD for 15 yrs & have tried pizza from at least 50 places. I was also very excited last year when San Diego magazine came out with their PIZZA ISSUE and I proceeded to eat my way thru all 25 of their top recommendations. Coming from the East Coast... More
