Best Pizza in Manayunk!

The pizza is by far the best and most authentic pizza in the Philadelphia area. The dough and sauce is made fresh every morning. They throw it in the oven and swirl the sauce around the cheese just like at the Jersey shore. WARNING: If you are a WASP visiting from the South, you probably have grown accustomed to and prefer the southerner pizza AKA pizza soft crust pizza made from refrozen dough with ketchupy Prego ... view more

Horrible

We have had a very hard time finding good pizza in Philadelphia since moving here 2 1/2 years ago (Philadelphia does not do pizza well) and Alex's is probably the worst we've had so far. The crust was so rock hard that we couldn't even eat it. We got the steak pizza which seemed to have some sort of ground hamburg on it. There was hardly any sauce or cheese on it. The large pizza was tiny and not filling at all. ... view more

A new twist on an old favorite

One word - Delish\r \r The rumors are true!!!! Alex's original is back. \r Having been long-time pizza connoisseurs of the Philadelphia area, we had to confirm for ourselves that the pizza was really back. This is the best pizza that we have had in a long-time. The crust was superb, the sauce was heavenly, and the toppings substantially meaty. We would highly recommend this local gem.\r So take it from us, if yo... view more

Will Alex's Return to what I Remember

Have lived in the area forty plus years. Been going to Alex's since I was a teen. The original owners back then were friendly, knew your name and gave you efficient service and consistant pies. Gravy was made on premises as was the dough. No Delivery but then it was nearby and not a big deal to go get it. Pies were also the lowest price anywhere in the area. After working overseas for many years I returned to Roxboro... view more

Good pizza, small town feel

Finally I found a decent pizza place in the area without going into Center City. Not like New York, but still good pizza. Sweet sauce and a fun spiral of sauce and cheese. Hard to park in the area so bring someone to jump out and get it while you wait in the car or drive around the block. No delivery which doesn't help the parking situation any but its tolerable. Friendly people and fast service when you call ah... view more

classic pizza place

This place is the classic neighborhood pizza place - cheap, no frills, fresh and absolutely delicious. yes, the staff isn't the nicest in the world, but the final product is what you're there for....and it's absolutely delicious. the pie is always fresh, piping hot, and dirt cheap. if you're having a movie night, or friends over for a low key night, this is the perfect pie. if you're looking for gourmet pizza, th... view more

Change in recipe??

Alex's had been my favorite pizza in the Philadelphia area for years and each time I was home (I live in Virginia now), I would eagerly await the trek from Fort Washington to Alex's for one of their piping hot delicious pizzas. I was disappointed with my last visit., however. The pizza didn't taste the same. I'm not sure if they changed recipes or owners, but it wasn't as good as it used to be. I'm hoping it was... view more

Are we talking about the same place???

This was the worst pizza I have had since I moved here. Too much sauce, which also tasted terrible. The cheese was cheap and too much on it. The dough was not cooked and chewy. The only good thing was it was cheap so I didn't waste that much money. I am still looking for some good pizza in the Roxborough area if anyone has any real suggestions.
