Soooo happy that I saw this article! I've been to the Blue Line in Burlingame (and it's excellent) but didn't know there's one closer to home! Blue Line Pizza is the real deal! Waaaay better than any other pizza joint around! When you can taste the cornmeal in the cornmeal crust, you know it's good! Delicious!

I like Blue Line just fine, but find Paxti's better. Blue Line is high quality, and the service is very good, at least the few times we've been there. Having desserts will be a definite lure, compared to Paxti's.

Pizza .... just makes me moan for Pizza-A-Go-Go that used to make the best pizza I can remember, Veggie, Super-Veggie, and Pepperoni! Does anyone remember that place ... and if so, does anyone know why they had to close down? It seems they did a great business, it was always busy. Was it because the landlord kept raising the rent? I have not really had a good piece of pizza since they shut their doors.

The thin crust picture looks good, but that artery-clogging heart-attack inducing big thick deep slice pizza just makes me want to check that my health insurance premiums are paid up. I thought Palo Alto was so progressive and ahead of the times ... so why do we get so many new businesses selling us unhealthy food?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
