Long Description:
This restaurant has been open for 65 year as of posting this Waymark, 1956-2020.

Gene Cortese opened Pizza Shop at 301 Broadway in 1956. It was the first pizza joint in town, and pizza has been served there ever since.

"There are just so many tender, tender stories," Tilock said. "And we've got a guestbook that I've had for years, that people have written their stories in: I got engaged in this booth, I had my first date over there, and these are people that are celebrating their 60th anniversaries."

One time a lady whose husband had died came in and Tilock was able to show her a place in the guest book where he had written that he "fell in love" with the lady "over a Sammy's sausage pizza."

Tilock also doesn't mind bragging on the shop's pizza pies.
