With a name like that, you almost have to go test their challenge and find out if they really do serve your “favorite” pizza at Favorite Pizza on west 6th St. Open from 11 am – Late every night of the week, this is the restaurant that likes to stay open until they run out of customers, a lucky break for those insomniac pizza lovers out there.
