It was my first time in NYC, and even though my friend used to live near here, he didn't know the nearest good pizza joint. So we hit up Mimi's pizza, because we figured it would be cheaper than some sandwich shop. The meal started with the server not knowing the difference between bottled water and tap water. We ordered garlic knots, and a large pizza with half onion. The garlic knots came, and immediately I saw how half of them were burnt on top. He handed us a stack of 4 plates, and I took the second one down. I saw that it was dirty, and I pointed this out to him, so he took it around the corner, out of view, and wiped it with a dry towel. I gave up and just went with it. Garlic knots didn't taste too bad, apart from the burntness. Next came our pizza. The onions were almost raw, like they remembered to put them on halfway through the cooking process. The sauce was watery junk. The cheese was nothing to get excited over. The crust was the best part of the pizza, and it was only so-so.
The men's bathroom had no soap. The music consisted of a hardcore instrumental jam session, followed by... Chinese music? I thought pizza was Italian? The decoration was decent, until I (a carpenter) saw the half-rate job done on the drop ceiling. You aren't supposed to have tiles that are three inches wide!!!
Overall, a party of four was charged $40, way too much given what we ordered. Given our overall service, Jesse decided to leave a large tip of $2. Then I took half of that and gave it back to him. I hope the server reads this, and remembers our 2.5% tip.
I'd sooner eat pizza from kay's in NEPA then eat there again.

I grew up in New York City and have now been living in Canada for over 20 years.... The first time I ate pizza in Canada, I cried because it was the pits compared to Mimi's Pizza. I'm sooooooooooo happy to know that they still exist! I will be going back this year.... and I'll definitely be taking home a cooler of semi-cooked Mimi's cheese pizzas! Mimi's Pizza is the best pizza in the world! I can still taste it over 20 years later if I close my eyes! Way to go, Mimi's!

Maybe, if you run in to get a quick slice, this place is average. Don't order anything else!! The 'staff' will do no better than a bad Chinese take-out place. With so many new, pleasant, inexpensive places around here now, why keep this dump in business? Because of the paid-off, outdated celeb photo-testimonials? You've gotta be kidding if you say this rundown joint has ambience, charm or good food.
