The Rodriguez family opened up the original location for Rey’s Pizza in Little Havana in 1985, starting what would soon become a Miami Cuban pizza empire. The original location still delivers on its namesake, since it’s basically a big yellow castle right off west Flagler. The pizza here has a thicker, doughier crust with the toppings under the cheese. The crust is unfortunately lacking that crispy cheese rim, but they make up for it by using so much freaking cheese. They’re also open 24 hours, so it’s the perfect place for a bite after a long night of dancing at Ball & Chain. Or maybe more of a 1am pizza spot after eight hours of binge-watching The Crown for the third time.
