They only do one thing - Pizza - and they do it well! This is a local gem - loved by generations of customers . . . if you are in Biddeford, and you like pizza - this is a must do!

Have had it on three different times. At it's best it was barely average. At it's worst, well, we live just down the street and we will go somewhere else, because its not worth crossing the street for. Single serve size, for a regular size pizza price. Toppings are all sub par. What is with that cheese?

I had heard that Pizza by Alex was the greatest in the Biddeford area, so I tried it. I was disappointed at best. The crust was too greasy and tasteless, the hamburger on it was not fresh or they cooked the crap out of it before hand. I believe it was frozen bits of burger because all the pieces were... More

Was not like NY style pizza. Dough tasteless. Spinach pizza tastes like overcooked frozen spinach, not fresh. If you can find the cheese it doesn't taste like mozzarella. No fresh basil either. Sauce mediocre. Very popular with the locals but not for us.

The Greek pizza was amazing. It is a little one the expensive side but it was worth it. I love the old sign that was outside of the building and the location was great.

I have been eating at Alex's since 1965..It is a must when we come to Maine for the summer or any other time we are here. Our first meal is ALWAYS here. My sons are grown now, but they too have " grown up" with Alex's pizza. Some years ago Bob cooked the pizza only half-way ..I would carry it... More

I have been here about 5 times over the past decade and each time I say I should go more often. It is just a bit too out of the way for me. They have all 10" individual pizza's & fountain soda's, nothing flashy, just savory comfort pizza. A bit expensive for the size but filling and tasty none the... More

Salty taste overwhelms every aspect of this pizza. Poor cheese flavor. Crust seems good though somewhat thin but doesn't salvage sauce and toppings. Only serve pizza here and locals think it's great. Guess I'm spoiled. Won't return no matter how much my relatives urge me to try again.

When you only serve one product, you have to do it correctly. They only serve pizza - nothing else - and they do it better than anyone else. Try the Alex Special, an incredible pie. It's an institution - you can come back after 10 years and nothing had changed. Like going home. Always sparkling clean.

After reading the endless positive reviews for Alex, I was disappointed to find that it's sort of average. The crust is good and the sauce is tasty, but it's really salty, the pepperoni is so small that I wonder what it really is, and there's no way to get fries or even a box to put the pizza in. Finally,... More
