Pizzeria Luigi

Also 2121 El Cajon Boulevard, North Park, 619-294-9417. Real New York pizza, with just-right sauce and crusts thin enough to fold in a V and eat on the run. Better yet, get a whole pie to enjoy at leisure. Neighborhood delivery available.

Best NYC-style pies in San Diego, HANDS DOWN. Maybe even the best pies in San Diego PERIOD. I like to go with the plain cheese or the BBQ chicken. Fun atmosphere.

That cash-only thing at Luigi's is such a pain in the ass. Who carries cash anymore? Luigi's, three times in the last few weeks I've wanted to get a couple of slices and a beer only to realize I had no cash. So I ended up spending that money somewhere else. Please, join the 21st century.

I carry cash because credit and debit cards are crawling with fees and because it's easier to track my spending when I count out cash myself rather than just irresponsibly throwing everything on plastic and assuming it will be taken care of. As for Luigi's, their typical sale is probably less than 10 bucks, and businesses sometimes lose money running credit and debit on such small items. Also, they probably don't want to serve a customer and see their card declined, or they don't want people who use plastic for five-dollar purchases because that's kind of a sign of douchebaggery.
