When regulars start lining up for lunch outside a mysterious storefront at 10:30am, you simply put your head down and follow their lead. The nondescript North End takeout spot turns out consummate Sicilian slices: thick, chewy and square-shaped (never mind cheap as hell). The food is so addictive that even those waiting for a table at nearby sit-down restaurants have been known to make an appetizer out of a slice. Little wonder that it’s one of Alan Richman’s favorite pizzerias in the country.
