Just a couple of turns from Hickory Street, Empire Pizza sits on the corner intersection of Dickinson Street and Oakland Street. An interior design that is in line with any other Italian restaurant, I was really looking for the pizza to make this place special. When two jumbo slices arrived in front of me, they were everything that defined average pizza. Forgettable cheese and crust, and good sauce, but not nearly enough to save the taste. Open and delivering until midnight, Empire is a good place to get a late-night slice, but nothing more.
