Love love love Bens. If only barstool sports and El Presidents himself (Dave Portnoy) could come taste for himself. Pepperoni with sausage, black olives and jalapeño peppers. I've been eating their that way for 37 years. A must try
Sadly some of you think this is the best pizza. Maybe 20 years ago but not now. And I dare you to call barstool taste test. They will give them a miserable rating . I come from a pizza back ground and can tell you this is solely in business because of what they once were... might be time to consider retirement
Large poboys.. Pizza crust is prefab, but edible with extra cheese & pepperoni. Helps that they are nice here too. If you're hungry, or sick of the normal pizza delivery places, it will work. My boys love their hot sausage poboys & onion rings. I like the wop salad, easy on the olives (or on the side), w/Italian.
I'm stuck at a 12 hour shift and not familiar with the food around me so I googled pizza places near me and Bens Pizza popped up first. I get hungry so I ordered my regular Hawaiian pizza and spicy wings as I usually do at any pizza place.
I was excited to get my food because I haven't had pizza in over a month. The driver took over an hour and half just to deliver my pizza being that the restaurant is nearly a mile away from my location and it was a Saturday evening. When I get my food the pizza don't even look like a pizza should, it looked made out of cardboard and had no taste to it . When I actually go and try the pizza , I was right, the dough tasted like cardboard and I was highly upset. Now the toppings, sauce, and cheese was on point and that was the only part that I enjoyed about my pizza. The wings were also on point and that brought my judgement about this place a little higher that it already was.
The reason I gave this 2 stars and not 5 or 1 is because, I feel as if they could have done better with the pizza dough and I have yet to try the rest of their menu and enjoy the pizza in their restaurant.
This is a no frills kind of place. The decor is non-existent other than the picture of Roger Goodell with the words "Do Not Serve this Man" on the wall. There are a few poker machines, a few more cheap tables and chairs and that's about it.
With that being said, all of the food is decent to solid except for the pizza. I know that's odd as the name of the place is Ben's PIZZA! Now granted I only had the pizza once but it tasted more Digiorno like than hand tossed in a restaurant like. The rest of the food though I like. They have a decent list of po-boys, I usually get the meatball or fried ham. They always bake the meatball po boy after so that the cheese melts and the bread gets browned around the edges. Perfect! They have the usual shrimp, roast beef and erster poyboys as well. (Yes I typed 'erster', they don't say Oyster in Da Parish). They also have a very good Muffaletta. The olive salad is great! The fries and onion rings are blah as they are frozen but they don't charge you a lot for them either.
Forgot to mention they also have tamales and a Wop salad. You won't find that name in many places in this politically correct world then again Da Parish doesn't follow those sort of rules. The people are super friendly and fast at both Ben's locations. I prefer the one in Arabi so I can take my sandwich across the street to The Battlefield and eat it in peace.
