Vic’s Pizza could become a family favorite
A tiny pizzeria, just off Greenville’s Main Street on Coffee Street, feels like a downtown institution. In fact, Vic’s is fairly new to Greenville, opening just two years ago.
They call their pizzas “authentic New York style” and boast about using the finest ingredients money can buy to craft their fresh-to-order pies. I think the quality shines through in every bite. The cheese alone blows most other pizza out of the water.
Vic’s pizza doesn’t smack of preservatives and doesn’t taste like it was made to please only children. It’s real, handmade food meant for families to enjoy together. You can eat in at Vic’s if you’re lucky enough to grab a seat, but there are just a few tables and a couple of stools, so pick up a pie and eat at the plentiful tables at the One Plaza across the street (and let the kids run around).
There are white pizza and veggie, carnivore, Hawaiian and Buffalo chicken pizzas on the menu. Vic’s also offers hot subs and calzones and wings baked in-house, but our order remains the same: the Vic’s Signature, otherwise known as cheese pizza. Sometimes simple, done right, is all you need.
If you think carry out will be a parking nightmare, it’s not. Pull into the parking lot just past the building and tell the attendant you’re picking up at Vic’s.
And, if you happen to live within three miles of downtown, they’ll deliver to your door.
Eat Out! tip: Vic’s offers the Bronx Bomber, a 28-inch, $40 monster that can easily feed a crowd. It’s cut into squares and makes the perfect party food. Give Vic’s at least an hour’s notice if you plan to order the Bronx Bomber, so plan ahead.
The bottom line
Vic’s brings the Upstate an authentic slice of New York that your whole family will savor.
