Located around the corner from where I grew up, Joe Peep?s offers up New York style pizza, with thick or thin crusts. They're known for their menu of ?5,969 calorie pizzas,"" and boy your stomach will know it the minute your first bite sinks in. Plan ahead, as the wait for take-out can be long.

If you're craving NY style pizza, complete with plenty of ingredients and grease, this is the place to go! You walk in and feel like you've left LA. The walls are full of graffiti and the tables are very relaxed. The staff is even nice!
The only drawback is if you're looking for a good side salad, don't go. It's definitely for a craving for good pizza and worth the trip. (:

pizza is good but the employees have attitude and over charge. I've paid as much as exactly $19.98 for a 18"" three topping blue collar pizza for pickup. Shoulda been according to menu + tax $18.34.
$10.49 + 1.99 for each topping including extra sauce + .49 for takeout + tax.
They acually charge for a premium topping for extra sauce!
I won't be back!!!

This pizza place is not for the weak at heart. You will be stuffed. They are very genorous on their topping. they are always fresh. The staff is very friendly. I have never had a soggy pizza delivered. The place is small, so I recommend take out or delivery. Also try their fresh loafs of bread. The price is outstanding. The 18 inch meat lovers would cost you at least 1/2 more at a change pizza place. Thanx Joe Peeps for making me a VIP.

If you physically go to Joe Peeps, it's really good. But ONLY if you go there. Delivery takes forever. They say it's because of the volume of orders. That would be easy to believe if the food showed up, say, WARM. We can't expect hot food, now can we? At the restaurant the pizza is hot and the crust is crisp. Delivered it's just a cold, soggy mess. I was shocked by this, having eaten at the place, so I gave the delivery a second chance. EVEN WORSE the second time. Not only was the pizza cold and soggy, but it appeared to be only half cooked. When did NY style pizza become an all-encompassing term? I'd say it's more Transylvania style than anything, as no vampire will come near after all that garlic. I like garlic a lot, but too much is too much.

First thing's first.. this is not NY pizza. Don't expect that when you order it despite the name. We ordered delivery. This was our first try of Joe Peep's NY Pizza. Something I've found about LA (which is definitely different than NY) they charge delivery charges and some times hefty ones at that. Joe Peep's charged $4 on top. Seems a bit steep and puts me in an awkward position about what to tip the driver. Well, we ordered the 18"" Blue Collar (thin) pizza. Thick crust is not something I like (even from Totono's in NY). We always order the first pie plain to try it out for what it is.. Cheese and sauce were ok.. just ok. Crust was crisp and thin.. definitely some corn meal used which is never ok. Another reviewer mentioned it was Domino's-ish. It kind of was but a few small steps up. Other reviewers commented on the garlic in the sauce.. it seemed fine to me. Nothing stood out. The 18"" is a big pie with many small slices. Oh, skip the wings. They're oily and nasty. They came with ranch too.. no blue cheese and celery. I've tried a few pizza places in the area searching for that great pie and so far the only one that has had the best flavor (despite having too much oil though) has been Vitello's in Studio City.

I eat pizza all the time, and I've tried tons of different places in LA and New York. I went with a good ol' pepperoni pizza. They really don't mess around with the toppings. The pizza was completely covered in pepperoni, which is a good thing if you really, really like toppings. The sauce was very heavy on the garlic, and that says a lot coming from a garlic lover such as myself. It was almost too garlicky, but not quite. The crust is thick and quite filling, I could only eat two slices from the large pizza I ordered.
I definitely expected more from reading the reviews on this site, but the pizza was still quite enjoyable. I wouldn't mind going there again and trying something else, but I probably won't go out of my way to do so. The restaurant itself is not a particularly pleasant environment. I'd suggest getting takeout.
