Tony’s Bada Bing: A pizzeria with a drive thru!

by Jami Mullikin on December 11, 2012

Pepperoni Pizza the way I like it.

Don’t let the small, drive-thru appearance fool you. The former Sexy Taco, Tony’s Bada Bing Bronx, New York Pizzeria was a great surprise for me this week.  A co-worker told me that they had seen a new place open up on Woodruff Road in Greenville (it may actually be Mauldin, SC), so I set out to check it out and was pleasantly surprized.

Upon arrival, I was unsure of what my expectations should be.  I love small, hole-in-the-wall places, but this is in a stand alone drive through that was originally a Brewsters I believe. When I walked in, I was surprised to see a few tables.  My first question to the lady taking my order was, “Are you Tony the local pizza chain, Tony’s from Haywood Road or a new Tony?”.  To my surprise, we have a new Tony in town.

So I ordered my two slices of pepperoni and they came out quick.  The slices are huge with a thin crust with just the right amount crispiness.  It is exactly what you would expect from a NY-style pizzeria. They are light on the cheese with a good balance of sauce. Nothing fancy, just good and quick.

I think BadaBing is definitely worth checking out and a place that I will stop back by when I am on that side of town.  Check it out and let me know what you think.

Tried it. Found the pizza extremely greasy with a soggy crust that didn’t seem to be cooked all the way through…had a very pronounced yeast flavor that I found unpleasant. The ratio of toppings/sauce/cheese/crust was really good, not overloaded or under loaded. Unfortunately they got our order incorrect as well, despite repeating it at least 3 times. So we got a pretty bad first impression, and won’t be trying it again.

I love Tonys, his pizza is awesome and he is very accomadating and fun to talk with. There two slices and a drink under 6.00 bucks is a good deal.
