This is a story that started in New York City - well sort of. I met Donna at a restaurant we both worked at in Buckhead. In a simple twist of fate we both won a weekend trip to New York City. We decided to go together with friends and Donna fell madly in love with me. A mere 4 years later we were married.

     The idea behind Empire State Pizza was born in a little kitchen in a house in Woodstock.

The idea was pretty simple - Use the best ingredients we can find to make the best food we possibly can. Serve these dishes in a relaxed family atmosphere along with the finest selection of beer we can get our hands on.

      We adhere to this philosophy in everything we do here at Empire. We order the finest freshest raw materials to  hand make every menu item. Everything is made fresh to order and sometimes that can take a little longer. Sometimes the seasons effect the availability of certain items, for this I apologize. Thanks for looking over our website and we hope to see you in real soon! I sure hope you enjoy your visit!
