Dallas Observer's Description
Since 1956, Marco, the self-proclaimed oldest pizzeria in Dallas, has been using a Sicilian family recipe currently known only to Frank Nuccio, son of founder Marco Nuccio. What is certain is that there are more than a dozen spices in the sauce and dough. What also keeps Marco's in business is its willingness to go with the flow. For example, among the available toppings are several vegan options. The specialty pizzas are many and varied. The Augustus is made up of an olive-oil glaze, freshly chopped garlic, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, provolone and feta. The Special is a grocery list of ingredients: onions, sausage, ground beef, Canadian bacon, pepperoni, black and green olives, green pepper, mushroom, jalapeño and anchovy upon request. There are pasta dishes available, but with so many pies to choose from, a handful of noodles doused in sauce have a difficult time competing.
In the late '50s, Joseph Marco Nuccio started serving pizza at his Marco Pollo Lounge on Carroll Avenue. Then in '62, he moved his pizzeria to its current location at Preston Road and Royal Lane.

In the late '50s, Joseph Marco Nuccio started serving pizza at his Marco Pollo Lounge on Carroll Avenue. Then in '62, he moved his pizzeria to its current location at Preston Road and Royal Lane. Not sure how much a piece of pie and a cold drink cost back then, but today Pizza By Marco will serve you up a slice of pizza loaded with three topping of your choice and a soda for a measly $2yeah, you read that right. A family business since the day they served their first piping-hot pie, Marco's doesn't serve up a greasy, cheap-o slice either. Every morning, Joseph's son, Frank Nuccio gets up early to prepare the pizza sauce and dough fresh from a closely guarded family recipe. The slices are amazing, and the crust is perfectly thin and crispy, and they offer all the standard toppings to choose from plus vegan soy versions of cheese, pepperoni, sausage and hamburger. Frank has recently opened two other locations that offer a one-topping slice of pizza and drink special for $2.50, which we still think qualifies as a best deal.
