It’s the restaurant that comes to mind when you’re craving a slice of New York style pizza in Victoria.

Famous Original, the downtown Victoria pizzeria that served “pizzas the size of a car tire and slices as big as your face” appears to have shut its doors for good.

This lower Yates Street staple opened shop in 2016 and had become a late night go-to for downtown revelers seeking a beer and a bite.

And if you didn’t go in for their delicious pizza or happy hour drinks, you probably favoured their spiced waffle fries, buzz-worthy shafts, and a hearty game of skee-ball.
