“Alexicon of Pizza”
Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

Never would have found Alex's without a guide from Fort Leonard Wood. This seems to be a place in Rolla (where I'd never been) for both students and military folk to hang out. We drove 30 minutes to ensure a decent pizza dinner, and were well satisfied with our first close to Ozarks meal.
First I must admit my prejudice: I have a strong preference for thin crust pizza. So Alex's homemade pies fit the bill very well. Then there's the matter of choice. The menu offers a large selection of toppings in addition to the restaurant composed combos. Three of us chose a large (14") Mediterranean with fresh spinach and basil, feta, banana peppers, tomatoes, and added artichokes. The pizza arrived hot and well cut into small handleable pieces. The flavors were vital and the look attractive. My only quibble is that all the topping morsels were quite small, so some of the ingredients lost some of their taste or textural identity. We demolished the willing pie, and only my innate politeness slowed me down enough to share equally.

A small but reasonable list of draft beers aided in customizing our pizza experience and our happy digestion.

Huge barn of a place, friendly service, with a nice mixture of pizza lovers from around the area.

I have been returning to Alex's Pizza since college in 1978 and the quality never changes. Alex serves the best pizza around town!

“Ah yes....College Town Pizza”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

You want great pizza? Go to a college town. Of course, if the college is a major university, the task will be to determine which of the several pizza joints in town serves up the best. Luckily, we already believed Alex's to be the best (or at least one of the best) in Rolla. (Internet restaurant research - don't leave town without it!).

While we had reason to believe that Alex’s was a very popular place. it was not crowded at all this night due to it being Spring break for both the University and Rolla’s public schools. We shared a salad, bread sticks and a House Special pizza. That plus a couple soft drinks cost us $34.00, including tax and tip.

“Alex's on the decline...”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Have been in several times in the past few months, and have been terribly disappointed every time. Service is lackluster, the food quality is average at best, it's nowhere near as good as it used to be, and is now really no more than an OK stop for some average food.
