  • - It's like tangy.

  • - The crust has a really good, like--

  • - Woody crunch.

  • Forget about factor zero.

  • - I'mma remember bout this.

  • - I wonder what Keith and Zack are doing right now.

  • (dreamy harp)

  • - Wow, boys that looks delish.

  • - Mmm

  • - We're outside of Greco's.

  • - Two and a half stars out of 129 reviews, damn.

  • - Stale and distasteful.

  • That's like attitude, not even flavor.

  • - Hollywood pizza, let's do this.

  • This is where the magic happens.

  • This looks bad

  • Well, this crust is hard.

  • - Hard.

  • - I feel like I'm eating raw dough.

  • - I don't taste any cheese or sauce.

  • - It's almost just a whisper of sauce.

  • - Does it taste like anything?

  • - It tastes like a mistake.

  • - It's amazing how little favor a food could have.

  • That's the wow for me.

  • - Time to check back with Eugene and Ned in New York

  • but first a quick

  • - Fried chicken break.

  • (hip hop music)

  • - Back to you in New York, Ned and Eugene.

  • - I don't get any service in the subway, what's with that?

  • - Cause we're underground.

  • Right now, we're at John's on Bleecker Street.

  • - It's got graffiti all on the walls.

  • It's a sit-down place that's a little more casual.

  • - Yeah, kinda like a pizza diner.

  • - Yeah.

  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah.

  • - So let's check it out.

  • - Pizza diner, oh, I thought you were going back.

  • - Yeah, cause my hair is melting because the humidity here

  • is so high.

  • - Oh, it's so hot.

  • - Alright, let's go inside and get some pizza.

  • - Cheers.

  • - Oh, that's hot.

  • - They get a bonus plus one for grease.

  • Cheese, super pulley.

  • Puddle of cheese.

  • - Sauce, a really strong tomato flavor on the sauce.

  • - Yeah.

  • - This crust is delicious though.

  • It's got a nice crisp.

  • Wanna hear that crisp?

  • - Zero forget about its, I would remember it.

  • - 20 million remember bouts its.

  • (laughs)

  • - This a confusing rule.

  • Can you do your best New York accent?

  • - Forget about it!

  • - Wow, what a time you seem to be having.

  • - Well, we walked down the street

  • to another pizza place, Combo's.

  • - Worst pizza ever!

  • - Horrific pizza.

  • - We can't do this alone.

  • - So we brought our friend, Chris.

  • - Yay, he knows mediocre food best.

  • Chris, what do you know abut Combo's pizza?

  • - Absolutely, nothing.

  • - Great, let's do this!

  • - It's actually nicer than the last place.

  • - Yeah, it's pretty.

  • - Thank you so much.

  • - Have a nice day.

  • - Take care.

  • - Ah, oh!

  • - It's looks greasy.

  • - Alright, what'd you call this, Chris?

  • - A grease pool.

  • - Gnarly grease pool.

  • - This makes me feel bad.

  • Tastes like school pizza.

  • - This is as doughy if not doughier than the first one.

  • - This is dough city.

  • - Let's take a bite of the crust.

  • - It's just burnt bread.

  • - The wow of this is that it gets worse as it goes.

  • - This is more memorably awful than the first one.

  • I'm feeling queasy now.

  • - You guys check in Eugene and Ned

  • who are having a way better time than us.

  • - I bet they're doing something crazy.

  • - You guys, I just got sick.

  • (bluesy music)

  • - Our next stop, we're outside of Joe's pizza.

  • This place was opened in 1975 and Joe, apparently,

  • still works and runs this place and there's one location.

  • - New York really has a good hold

  • on family and tradition, huh?

  • - Huh?

  • - Forget about it.

  • - No, remember bout it.

  • - Two pizzas and some chicken in, and I'm feeling gross.

  • - I feel really quite like garbage.

  • - Everything looks so good, everything's like really greasy.

  • - Like what imagine in my head New York pizza to look like.

  • - Cheers.

  • - New York.

  • - I feel like I might already need to poop from that pizza.

  • - Cheese, exceptionally stringy.

  • - Real strong pull factor.

  • - Sauce actually, not quite there.

  • - You guys look like you're having a great time.

  • - So much fun.

  • - Ow.

  • - What about that crust?

  • - Like, a little bit burnt but not too burnt.

  • Lightly burnt toast.

  • - How many forget about its do we give it?

  • Zero forget about its.

  • - I tried to poop but I couldn't but I feel like I have to.

  • - If you looked up pizza in the dictionary.

  • This would be a photo of it.

  • I'll remember this forever.

  • - Imagine what a $2.50 in L.A. would taste like.

  • (burps)

  • - Oh, I can't stop burping.

  • - Stop burping.

  • - We're going through The Grove to the Farmer's Market

  • at The Grove.

  • That's where we were told the (bleep) pizza is.

  • - Ok, here we are.

  • - Aw, this doesn't look terrible.

  • The crust looks pretty good.

  • - Yeah, and there's like a nice distribution of pepps.

  • - The cheese becomes liquid immediately,

  • but the flavor isn't bad.

  • - I'm not gonna lie, I'm pretty disappointed.

  • This is pretty good.

  • - The cheese was stretchy.

  • The sauce was tasty.

  • The crust was good.

  • The wow factor is, it's not bad.

  • - Yeah.

  • - It's supposed to be bad.

  • - The wow is wow, I could eat this.

  • - Back to you in New York.

  • - It's time to Facetime Zach and Keith.

  • - Ok, I don't have service.

  • - Zach and Keith.

  • - Hi.

  • - So, what's the moral of the story?

  • - Do you guys think you find a more worse place,

  • than we found the best place.

  • - I don't know, did we?

  • - Well, I'd say the second place was easily the worst

  • pizza I've had in my life.

  • It was really abysmal.

  • - All the pizzas we had were excellent.

  • Including this Two Brothers.

  • It's just two dollars.

  • - Ned, I know, I'm from New York.

  • Find a truly atrocious and horrible slice of pizza

  • inner Los Angeles, harder than we thought it was gonna be.

  • - But still, we tried and we're the Try Guys so,

  • - What will we try next?

  • - I miss our friends, I hope they come back soon.

  • - I'm gonna jump into L.A.

  • (hip hop music)

  • - Pizza (chanting)

  • - Pie!

- Wow.
