If you're looking for a NY style crust, this place delivers. Excellent pizza with top notch ingredients. Also one of the only places that has a Sicilian pie in Durham. If you're going to get the Sicilian I highly recommend dining in. The issue is that the pie is too thick for the carry out pizza box and all of the cheese ends up sticking to the roof of the box ruining the pizza. Not sure if they have a solution for this yet but happened to me last time. The manager was apologetic and offered to take the pizza back. That withstanding the Sicilian pie is excellent!

Freshly made food as you order it. I miss New York style calzones but pie pushes call it a pocket. Same concept and freshly-made. The pizza is not bad either.

Their pizza is really good and greatly priced for the slice! I also very much enjoy their wings. Never had wings better than theirs. Recommend!!!

If you like different flavors of handmade pizza, this place is for you. They only offer very thin crust, not thick crust. Very friendly staff, very clean inside. Canned drinks are $2 each, prices not on menu. There are non-pizza items on the menu. Garlic twists are a must! Plenty of off street parking if you go later in the evening.

If you like super thin crust pizza this is the place for you. The pepperoni slices are a nice size for the price. If you are really hungry you may need 2 slices. The crust is crispy and you can taste the yeast. There is a good amount of cheese and pepperoni on the slice. This is a really good pizza and you can get a Coke in a glass bottle to go with it.

I was very impressed with this place. While a bit hard to find, the service and wings in particular we're pretty spectacular making their wing special days a must go. Their dry rub was awesome and worth a trip back as were their fries and wing sauces for dipping.

Fast service and delicious pizzas. Fun hipster vibe. Enjoyed the salad. The Queen Anne veggie pizza wasn’t my favorite due to the strong mushrooms, but I look forward to going back to try another.

It may be that "The Jerry" is the ideal and perfect pizza. Beginning with the crust, as one must, the crust has the correct ratio of crispiness to chewiness one expects in the better pie. The dough yields the best pie foundation I have ever encountered. The sauce must be made on site. The recipe is balanced such that the tomato expresses itself without any of the nasty overly sweetness of the industrial sauces. The application of the sauce is metered precisely such that the crust is not liquefied yet generous enough that the joyful consumer is aware of what is good and right in the world. The sausage is (I believe locally) made by someone who is obviously skilled, knowledgeable, and caring. The combination of the sausage and pepperoni balanced by the ample mozzarella evokes memories of the wonder of childhood and one's first encounter with the glory that is pizza. The clever folks at Pie Pushers are willing to work with the particular taste of their customers, I personally recommend the addition of mushrooms to complete pizza satisfaction. Please note, the Madrona Salad is by far the best salad available on the market anywhere. As a salad, it is peerless. The eggplant fries are also a delight...I could go on...The gentle folk at Pie Pushers will also bring this glory to you should you reside in their range. Courteous and prompt no less.God Bless the Pie Pushers and their work. Amen.

If you want to eat the best food in Durham, stop here. The pizza is the obvious choice, and you really can't go wrong. I'll usually get a couple single slices of their specialty pies.The big underdog though is the chicken wings! Best I've had in the area, and that was a total surprise.

Pie pushers is a great place to grab a quick slice or a whole pie. Good thin crust and generous toppings. The wings are also excellent if you want an alternative and they also have great salads.

Pie Pushers and staff are absolutely lovely. Always prompt with great attitudes. Seems like they like being there. Never rude when I call and food is always tasty. Clam chowder is delicious, as are the baked wings. I don't eat pizza but I still frequent this establishment.

Good food. Good people. Lgbt friendly. Good alcohol selection. Note: I don't want to take stars from the business, but I don't think it's an accessible business. You have to go up stairs to get in. I saw no signs of an elevator or other way a person with a wheelchair could access the business.

Not the most tasty pizza place, but definitely worth the money. Got the baked wings and a slice of the pepperoni supremo pizza. Pizza was decent and I liked how the slice was compact with various toppings. Wings were juicy and tender, but I didn't quite like how it had an awkward hint of sweetness that didn't match with my blue cheese sauce. Overall, a good place to get a satisfying meal under $15.

We had Pie Pushers cater our wedding in Durham with their food truck and the whole experience was astounding. Becky was communicative and accommodating, helping us make each decision in these trying times. And, on the day of, the food was SO good. The brussel sprouts with sauce were the secret hit of the wedding. Pie Pushers has cemented themselves as my go to local pizza place and my first catering option/recommendation.

I have been to the food truck on several occasions so I thought it was time to try it out at their Main St location. Food was fresh and came out pretty fast. You have to walk up a flight of stairs to get to their space but you will get back those calories you burned, I promise!

I really liked Pie Pushers when I first tried them via a food truck. Today, I realized it tastes like upgraded cafeteria food pizza. My husband agreed. We tried the beers recommended (local craft) but they were okay. Service was fine. We wouldn't go out of our way to go back.

Pie was decent. Canadian bacon and spicy with smoke gouda. Wings are the sweet and spicy dry rub.

I really wasn't in the mood for a counter service place and I was blown away by the pizza. The pizzas they've come up with are creative and the ingredients tasted fresh with many I assume made in house. They have a few beers on draft and a decent selection of bottles and cans. Make sure to check the board as they had a can special when we were there.

One of my favorite places to eat in Durham. The atmosphere is very laid back and the interior of the restaurant is phenomenal! The pizzas are great! It just like any Italian restaurant that you find but the dough, sauce, cheese and toppings are very high end. Take that mom and pop Italian restaurant that's in your hometown but have everything made correctly using only the finest ingredients and that's Pie Pushers. The prices are exactly what you would want them to be and they always have great rotating craft beers. I swear by this place and recommend it to everyone I know that is even thinking about pizza. I have made the 45 minute trip from my home just to go to Pie Pushers many times. The rest of my trip is up in the air and I'm winging it but Pie Pushers is a must. Stop what you are doing and go there now!

Excellent pizza, and the deep fried Devito is delicious. The staff were friendly and service was quick. The only issue was the music was really loud form of heavy metal.

Good quality pizza with the right crust & right cheese. Neat downtown place. A cool alternative, go for breakfast & get a slice of Breakfast pizza (w/ adding an egg!). 👍

Pie Pushers catered our weeding of 240 guests. They handled the number of guests with ease and the pizza is straight textbook! Kimmi is incredibly nice and thorough and our event went off without a hitch. We only have good things to say about these fine pizza folks!

Holy cow! This place is amazing! If you’re a fan of thin crust, this is the place for you! Order by the pie or by the slice. Slice menu changes daily (outside of basics). Service is friendly and generally quick regardless of time of day or night.

Found this place during a comic Con. Great little atmosphere! We came in cosplay and they were very welcoming! First guest had Baked garlic knots that were amazing, with cheese and sausage inside. Yum. I had a slice of pepperoni pizza that was divine.... thin crust and lovely sauce would highly recommend.

Love Pie Pushers-such unique toppings and vegetable based sides. The house salad with the creamy balsamic is a great option for making a larger meal. We also really like the Brussel sprouts-delicious! My go to pie is the Queen Anne with goat cheese and my husband likes the Jerry (sausage and pepperoni) and add green olives. I would suggest ordering half or whole pizzas. Sometimes ordering singles means a burnt/harder crust. The cheese slice my toddler got was over done-but he preferred our crust and toppings from our pizza. Customer service is great in house and easy to pick up if we eat out!

Pizza and apps are good.. but these chicken wings are the best in Durham! This was my dinner spot every Wednesday when I lived in downtown. I was in town this weekend and grabbed an order of baked wings and habanero BBQ; both with double ranch dressing.

The food was absolutely delicious. Since we didn't want to order 2 pizzas we ordered half pepperoni & half cheesy chorizo. I'll definitely visit this restaurant again.

Had a fun time! The food was good but the guy at the cash register had a massive attitude that put a bummer on the time. Would come again if he wasn’t at the front desk.

The food was really good. We ordered a 2 custom half pizzas and a chicken parm sub. The half pizzas were huge, next time definitely going to get a single slice. **They kicked in a free brownie because we arrived before the order was ready and they probably wanted to avoid a vengeful 1 star review. It was also good, more like cake instead of fudge (for those who care)…I almost want to drive back and pay for it bc they didn’t have to do that.

Best wings ever!!! They do $7 wing Wednesday and it’s totally worth the 35 minute drive. The ranch is best to go with!

I am torn between my experience yesterday. I got a calzone (which was excellent) and an order of baked wings. Like I said the calzone was awesome. Filled to the rim, crispy outside. Some of the wings were great! However, in an order of 10 wings, there were at least 4-5 wings that had small hairs baked into them. Which as you can imagine immediately ruined my appetite.

No AC and the floors are slippery on the way to the restroom. First time coming to this establishment but I was very impressed by the quality of the food and the time it took order food, eat and leave (30-40 minutes) Got the appetizer before I could first my 1st beer and the entree came shortly after! I will for sure be coming back here anytime I’m in Durham! Order: 2 - Anderson Valley Goses The Jerry (Whole Pie) Crinkle Cut Fries W/ Habanero BBQ sauce

Had very high expectations prior to visiting, which fell a bit short this time (I plan to revisit very soon). I got a few slices during the lunch rush in a timely manner. Customer service was 10/10 - super nice lady. The Sicilian slice was amazing and made the trip worth it. My pepperoni slice was a bit too crispy/lightly burnt on the bottom and the crust. Next time I want to try a whole or half pie to give a truly fresh pizza a go and I'm looking forward to it!

Never knew about this place until Offline sent us! Great pizza place. Definitely has all the weird toppings you can't get most other places.
