Reviewed July 10, 2022

I had read an article about the 'best pizza places in Maine', and Al's was one of them, so I was intrigued. I got a small plain cheese pizza, which I always get when visiting a new place. I've never had such a small pizza...-- seven inches of four normal slices, but that was fine. The tomato sauce was bland, the crust was hard and flavorless, and the pie looked like it had been in the oven too long. I've had a lot of good pizza in Maine, and Al's isn't one of them. I also tried their Whoopie pie that won best of something somewhere, and it was just average to me. So, it was an overall poor experience for this reviewer.More

I don't live in Skowhegan any longer, and haven't for years, BUT when I go "home" Al's is the FIRST stop, even before seeing family! Owners might have changed over the years, but the standards have NOT. Always fresh food, always friendly service and always...my first stop.More

Food was ok, service efficient. Decent for what the local pizza offerings are I guess. Get fresh dough, or else you get a cardboard type crust

The very best of everything they make. Great pizzas, hot or cold sandwiches or breakfast pizza. I've been going to this place for years and along with excellent food and quick service I've noticed many of the same employees, which in my mind means this...is a very well run business.More

Our family can appreciate a good pizza. It’s about the sauce, the dough, the cheese mix...and how it’s cooked. All these elements need to align for the pizza to be right. Here-your pizza is a science and every pizza is the same, if you order...it that way. So if you like Al’s once-you’ll like it again. My wife is a pizza freak and she loves Al’s pizza for the sauce. I’m Gluten Free, like the food I eat, and I appreciate that their crust is cooked well, thin, and actually edible as leftovers!More

Al's is a long established Pizza place that has expanded it's menu over the years. The food is delicious and fresh. The prices are quite reasonable and I've never had bad service. Because it's so good, it can be busy so don't be surprised if...you have a little wait. You can always call it in.More

I have an Italian wife t is a pizza freak-in a good way! She is very picky about her pizza, specifically the dough, the sauce, and the cheese-so, yah, the whole pizza. She loves Al’s Pizza and they also offer a GF option so I...can eat there too. The GF Pizza is a premise crust, but the pizza is good and I eat it cold, which is a statement for GF anything. Overall, one of the best options around town for a quick meal. 15-20 mins and done, no matter the night or time:)More

Do not pass Go, do not collect 200$. GO DIRECTLY TO AL'S PIZZA! Stumbled upon this place by pure luck while in town for work. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Delicious tuna melt, but the raspberry streusel was out of this world!!! Bought to...bring home for my husband and I to share, and I ended up keeping a fork and knife in the box because I could not stay away. The best either of us have ever tasted. Will absolutely be going back whenever I'm in town. Simply amazeballs. Thank you!!!More

Saw a review of the pepperoni and bacon pizza, so we got that on fresh dough. The service was fast and friendly, and the prices reasonable. If I make it back, I'll try one of thier award winning whoopie pies. The only slight negative I...have is that many of the tables needed to be wiped down. Overall a great place.More
