“El Presidente” has made his way back to the Garden State to try out another pizza joint.

Years after doing a taste test of their rival, Kinchey’s, Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy has done a one-bite review of Nellie’s Place in Waldwick, New Jersey.

Nellie’s Place, located at 9 Franklin Turnpike, is famous for its thin-crust pizza and Buffalo wings.

Portnoy recently tried their bar pie, describing it as “tight and dry.”

“That’s a good thing,” he clarifies in the video review.

The undercarriage of the pizza — always a concern — is up to Portnoy’s standards: not too floppy, not too stiff.

After taking a bite, Portnoy declares: “I greatly enjoy this.” So much so that after scarfing down most of one piece, he goes for a rare second slice.

For someone who famously only takes one bite for his reviews, going in for a second slice is certainly high praise.

Ultimately, Portnoy is torn on his review. His knee-jerk reaction is to give it a 7.9 out of 10, but he then has a change of heart, saying it should be an 8.1.

Apparently, locals pit Nellie’s and another local joint, Kinchey’s, against each other. Well, Portnoy is declaring a winner, and he’s going for Nellie’s. Kinchey’s only got a 7.5.

The popular chicken wings also got a bonus review: immediately upon biting into one, Portnoy rates them an 8.8.

“Great wing,” he says.
