New River Pizza has moved across the street; which only makes a difference if you would consider dining in at a pizzeria. Before they had some counters and tables but it wasn't a place you could come for a meal.
The downside of the new location is that there's a separate area for picking up takeout, and it's much worse that picking up at the old location. There's a small, cramped area, which is bad enough, but it's also where all of the drivers and employees hang out. If your 25 minute pizza ends up taking 35 minutes (like mine did), you'll get to hang out with a bunch of drivers; few of whom are Harvard Grads.
I've never liked this organization; they're rude at events and their employees have no idea how to treat customers. You pay when you arrive rather than when your food is ready and even when it's well overdue there's no update on when it might be ready. Eventually someone hands me a box and I was out.
New River Grill half sausage
My first impression was that it was a pretty small pizza with a lot of crust. Measuring it, it was 15" x 15.5", but with the big puffy crust it's really a 14" pizza ($15.31). There are no half items at New River; they give you a full item on half a pie even if that's not what you want. I really never quite get why pizza places care so little about their customers that they refuse to accommodate the 1/2 item. They'll give you a smaller pizza but there is just a mindless refusal to make the pizza the way the customer wants it.
From a taste standpoint, this was a really good pizza. Good sausage, good crust. I enjoyed it. If they had just taken the care to make it properly; To give me an actual 16" pizza and an actual 1/2 item. It could have been something worth wanting again.
Another annoyance with this place is that they charge $3.50 for a slice of pizza, plus tax, which is absurd.
