What makes Primo Pizza the best in the River Wards?
Owner Jim Duffy’s lips are sealed.
“What, you want me to give away our secrets?” he said lightheartedly.
But even if he’s not going to divulge his recipes, it’s clear that the pizzas at Primo reign supreme.
For over 19 years, Duffy and his crew have been making pizzas in the small shop on Trenton Avenue across the street from Pop’s Playground.
“We’ve seen the transformation of this area,” he said. “We’ve seen all the changes.”
Asked the shop’s specialty, Duffy said hungry readers should try the “mega pie,” a 24-inch pizza that Duffy said is great for parties.
“Bigger is better,” he said.
Duffy pointed out that Primo Pizza wouldn’t have won if it weren’t for such a hardworking team of employees.
“We are happy, thrilled really, to win” he said.
Duffy said that with the readers’ votes pushing Primo Pizza’s pies to the top, the next step is clear.
“What else can I say? If you haven’t tried us yet, now’s the time,” Duffy said.
