A small shop on West Sixth Street among bars and dance clubs, The Onion serves up slices of fresh, piping hot pizza pie to often-intoxicated customers. Choose from one of The Onion's staples, like pepperoni or supreme, or be more daring and opt for their wings or cheesy cheese sticks. In addition to standard toppings, they offer dried sweet basil, minced garlic, and Caribbean jerk sauce. With only counter service available, The Onion's small space can get crowded, particularly on weekend nights, so just be patient. The warm, New York style pizza is well worth the wait. They also have calzones, pizza rolls, and Greek salads.
