I only get into town once or twice a year and I also travel a lot to the New Jersey New York City area. I noticed that the pizza at Dusina's is absolutely delicious!
If this pizza restaurant was in New York City area, it would be one of the top pizza restaurants in the city without question!
Keep up the great work keep up the great pizza!
There's just no easy way to say this...from the very first bite all the way until I stopped pretending that it didn't, this pizza tasted like and looked like Dominos or some other fast food type pizza. From being somewhat overcooked to the canned-tasting sauce to the meager amount of cheese to the thick, doughy crust, it just wasn't good. The mushrooms were rubbery and squeaked like cheese curds when I chewed them. Dusina's does not even offer garlic as a topping. I should have taken this as a bad sign-- is fresh garlic not a staple in a restaurant that serves pizza and other Italian dishes? Why is garlic not on hand? Don't they cook with it?
I feel bad saying all this because the people who work there were really friendly and the price was excellent-- but there is no getting around it--this was my experience. They have a thriving carryout business and really good reviews. This mystifies me. Maybe the locals know something I don't. Or perhaps I know something THEY don't.
Me and my lady got take-out from here last weekend. She raved about this place and said it was a local gemstone, and now it's easy to see why! Dusina's is this little hole in the wall, pizza place that appears to be a fan favorite among those who live in the area. We were both in the mood for Italian so this was the choice for the evening! I am not sure if there is an ear in area as she actually just went inside and picked it up; since I stayed in the car I only saw the outside.
Anyways, we got a large pizza half pepperoni and half ham and pineapples (that one was for her). She also raved about the Buffalo wings and cheese bread so we added those to our order as well. The cheese bread might be the best I ever tasted! It was hot and fluffy and drenched in mozzarella cheese! It was also sprinkled with parmesan cheese and came with marinara sauce that was rich, hearty, and had a nice flavor to it. It had a hint of sweetness to it which I liked as well!
The Buffalo wings were DELICIOUS! They were huge, and really meaty! We got medium heat, and it aligned perfectly with the cool and creamy blue cheese dressing that came along with it! Finally, we made our way to the pizza. It was really fresh as you can tell they use real ingredients! The over. Asked crust was cooked thoroughly as some places have that doughy crust like it's undercooked. The size of it was very impressive as well! All of it came to about $27 which wasn't bad for all that food. It was worth it, I will say that.
The only frustrating part was we originally wanted to have it delivered, but patently my lady's place was right out of their delivery zone. The manager offered to meet us somewhere, but that sounded too odd for me and we just told them that we would come pick it up. Overall, I would eat here again for sure. Make sure you get those wings and cheese bread though, there were so so good!
I have been coming here since I was a kid but it had been quite a while since my last visit so my man and I decided to try dinner from here the other night.
We originally tried to call our order in for delivery but were informed that they could not deliver to our location but would meet us somewhere. #creepy. We instead opted to pick up our meal instead. I would have to say thst was my only complaint as the food was absolutely delicious.
We ordered pizza, garlic bread, and wings. The pizza was a thicker crust and very cheesy. Their garlic bread is more like what would be called cheese bread elsewhere but was really a great combination to our meal. The wings were a good size but could've been a bit spicier for my taste.
All in all, thus is a great place for a quick meal to go in the area.
My poor husband has heard me talk about how great the pizza was here probably 20 times today since we had it just last night. The employees are super nice and the food was done quickly. The pizza had the best crust, perfect amount of cheese and was hot and fresh. Will definitely be a customer over and over again.
