If you blink, you just might miss some of the best pizza in the city.. There's nothing to do but take a seat and watch the methodical process of pizza making. If it's a skill you're looking to acquire, this is an excellent place to observe. It's simple: pizza and pizza only. A thin, crisp crust is the well-crafted basis for all that it supports. The sauce is that rare harmony of sweet and savory and its to-cheese ratio is mathematically precise.
I couldn't survive without this pizza!. My husband & I live in the area and were referred by another couple. At first sight, the pizza strikes you as not-like-other pizzas because they bake it with the cheese on first and then swirl the oh-so-bodacious sauce over the cheese. Looks somewhat artsy, but after one-sclice you will be sure to be converted. We eat it 2x weekly and on movie nights. For $8.50 for a large pie, you cannot go wrong. We like the plain cheese best, adding more toppings just takes away from the raw beautiful taste of this pizza.
Call your order in before going.... Having lived in NYC for a short while and reading the preceding glowing reviews, I decided to give this place a try. Upon entering the establishment, I noted how busy the place was. I thought this was the reason for the less than receptive response from counter help. I was told in an abrupt manner that it would be over an hour wait if I wanted a pizza. No other assistance was offered after this interaction. As I stated earlier, I attributed this attitude to the atmosphere of chaos in the establishment and just left. The second time I attempted to patronize this establishment, I was with a friend. He attempted to place our order and was greeted with the same attitude by the counter help. If you really want this pizza, I recommend calling your order in, in advance.
Let me have a piece of that!. I honestly can't tell the difference between pizzas. I love Domino's, but no pizza franchise delivers to my area. I almost gave up on great pizza until I read reviews on Alex's. We called for an order of large pepperoni pizza. It was a little hard to find, being on a quiet street corner off Ridge. When I walked in, I was pleased. The place was clean (good sign), there are THOUSANDS of pizza boxes (they make a lot of pizza), and they only make pizza. Alex's is really just pizza. We got our order, I opened it and wow, it was piping hot and looked incredibly delicious. My mouth began to water. I had a slice, and I was in thin-crust pepperoni heaven. Just enough cheese, sauce and crust. Needless to say, I ate the entire pizza in a night. Yum!
New Yorker Approved.
OK, Philadelphians set your new yorker chip on the shoulder aside and listen to who knows. You tell me about steaks and I tell you about pizza.
Alex's represents everything and nothing more than a pizza place should be. They are great in every facet of the pizza experience. If you don't get this you can't be helped. I've lived in Philly for six years and this is one the few legit pizza places around
On my corner. Alex's sits on the corner of my block and that has proved to be a huge problem for me simply because having access to the world's best pizza at any given time is not so good news for my girlish figure...but it's worth that extra workout time. Hands down, the best pizza around.
Best of the Best, Way Ahead of the Rest. Alex's Pizzeria, which is take-out only, is outstanding, attracting persons from suburban counties who love great Italian pizza, baked in a way that prevents puddles of grease from forming in and around the cheese and pepperoni and any other delectable toppings you might consider adding. The crust is thin and has a crisp-chewy texture that is as fresh as the ingredients used on Alex's top-of-the-line pizzas.
good stuff. Amazing pizza. I have eaten it on many occasions, always hot, fresh and extremely tasty!!
best in flat crust. Although,"pizza is pizza" whenever you are hungry,should you have time to select,take it from a portly Wissahickon pizza aficinado....try Alex's.
