FORDHAM - For nearly 30 years, Fordham residents have been going for pizza at a restaurant that was once a junkyard.

Pugsley's has been serving up pizza and chicken rolls for 29 years, ever since the Natale family turned the junkyard into a pizzeria. Owner Sal Natale, along with his wife and children, all work together in the kitchen.

Diners say they not only love coming back because of the food, but also for the entertainment Sal provides by singing and playing the saxophone.
