Praise from Barstool Sports results in long lines for Raritan, NJ


David Portnoy of Barstool sports recently reviewed Raritan Borough’s Delucia’s Brick Oven Pizza for his web series.

Portnoy has made it his mission to visit restaurants to rate their pizza slices on a scale of 1 to 10. His recent review was a game-changer for the Delucia family.

In a surprisingly high review, he gave the pizza a score of 9.4 out of 10. That’s one of the highest scores in Portnoy’s pizza review history!

Raritan, NJ pizzeria earns praise from Barstool’s David Portnoy

After the video was uploaded (which, at the time of this writing, has over 475,000 views), Delucia started circling the block, according to locals posting photos of the crowd on the subreddit of the New Jersey.

Demand for a now-legendary slice of pizza has been “crazy and overwhelming” according to Christian Delicia in an interview. People from all over the east coast lined up for two hours to see if they could sign the 9.4 rating.

Of them. Hours.

Seriously, in what other state would people line up for a slice of pizza? ? It’s a story that could only unfold in the Garden State, for better or for worse.

While the pizzeria typically bakes around 90 pies on any given Saturday, last week it made 300. Staff worked longer hours to adjust to their newfound fame.

Even with the extra work, the pizzeria sold out several times over the past week, according to their Instagram posts.

What an incredible series of events for the Delucia family, who have been delivering pizza to New Jersey for generations!
