The Iconic Dollar Pizza Slice of NYC – Street Food Icons
Eli and Oren Halali, the two brothers who founded 2 Bros Pizza, sell slices for a buck. They’re known for getting their patrons in and out of the store within ten seconds, and for selling hundreds of pies a day. And they’re certainly not the only people in the dollar-slice game in New York City.
Ever since the Great Recession in 2008, dollar-slice spots started popping up all over Manhattan because people were in desperate need of a quick and cheap food option. Now there are more than 80 dollar-slice spots on the streets of New York.
People gravitate to dollar slice because it’s quick, easy, cheap, filling—and the slices themselves are pretty damn good considering the price. But, according to pizza historian Scott Wiener, dollar slices may be on the way out…so get them while you can!
