When they closed the Uno's in Paramus on Route 4, we missed their style of pizza and then found out that the nearest one is in this Clifton location. It's a toss up whether it's closer than the one in Wayne, but I went here for a curbside pickup of the thin crust "double deal". having a staffer come out to the curbside, take my money THEN go back inside to return with my order seems unnecessary - I would rather go inside, back out and be gone in less time. Unlike the Outbacks in Rochelle Park, I don't think these guys have a good view of the spots where curbside customer's pull up - and one space was taken by a customer that obviously had gone in for sitdown service.

Sad to say, when you order the thin, aka flatbread crust, you're going to get less sumptuous toppings as well as breading. It's reduced to a size similar to frozen pizza out of the supermarket. I will definitely stick with the deep dish that Uno's is known for. They are on the far side of the Riverfront Shopping Center on Route 3 West, across from the more extensive Clifton Commons on Rt 3 East. If you are looking for them as you head west, be prepared for the entrance after you cross the Passic River and pass the Route 21 interchange. It comes up quickly and by the time you wait to see the Uno's sign, you might be past the shopping center ramps. There are two ramps - I took the first one and after going past the other shops, I saw there was an entrance/exit right at the far end where Uno was. It's a pretty confined area, but if you are a fan of Uno's menu, it's worth the trip.

UPDATE July 2014
Previous review covered the takeout service. We just had the dine in experience and it was even better! With 9 year old twins I was bracing for the onslaught of noise and lack of catering to kids but was pleasantly surprised to see many families there. In all fairness, it pays to take children under 10 to most of these no later than 6pm so you can be out before the hardcore pub crowd comes in for a more party atmosphere. The trip was a success by the fact that Uno's had a "make your own pizza" option for kids. They don't just get to pick your toppings for their individual pie, they get the crust and all the fixings at the table and get to assemble it! They spread on the sauce, sprinkle on the cheese and in our case, both girls strategically placed the pepperoni slices. Then Uno's takes it back to bake it. I can't believe this has not been done by others. Both daughters were thoroughly delighted! I had the Chicago Classic, and it had the same consistent quality that made the drive to pickup worth it. If you have to go for franchise pizza, this has no peer. My original post title stands!
