New Jersey Home to Oldest Pizzeria in America


Zagat has published a list of the Oldest Restaurants in America, noting that the business is not known for long life spans. The list is actually broken down with the oldest operating restaurant in the following categories: Seafood, Creole, Steakhouse, Cafe, Diner, Italian, Delicatessen and other types of restaurants.

One of those categories is Oldest Pizzeria, featuring one of New Jersey’s own. Papa’s Tomato Pies in Robbinsville holds the crown even though Lombardi’s in NYC opened a few years earlier — Lombardi’s was closed for a decade which allowed Papa’s into their current reign. Papa’s was also named to the 33 Best Pizzerias in the US by Thrillist last year during National Pizza Month.
