Pizza >Alpha Pizza House
Great food, Reasonable Prices.. After reading Ben's comments, We almost did not go to this restaurant, and what a mistake that would have been. We walked in, 9 of us, and were immediately greeted by friendly staff. We sat down and were pleasantly surprised by the colorful and extensive menu. Our service was great. We inquired about imported beers and found out they were certainly available. The food was excellent, the chef specials were fresh and obviously home made. The pizza was great, the crust was superb. The manager assured us it is made fresh daily as well as the scrumptious rolls they served with all the dinners. We asked the manager about the mushrooms and his explanation made sense. He told us that fresh mushrooms on this style pizza cook down to almost nothing and become tasteless, they also can be mixed with small stones that could cause tooth breakage. Our mushrooms he said are not canned but processed. The pizza we ordered with mushrooms was delicious. We loved it and will go back.
Great Location, I wanted to like it but couldn't.
This restaurant has a lot going for it. It is in a cool location, a varied menu and service that wanted to be good (but wasn't).
The problems began when we arrived and it took 15 minutes to be acknowledged by anyone. I was also disappointed that they only offer a few domestic tasteless beers. I would have enjoyed a nice dark beer with some pizza but it wasn't to be. I was willing to overlook all of these issues because I was looking forward to some great pizza. This wasn't to be either. The crust had a very strange consistency that I really can't describe. But the one thing that made me want to get up and walk out was the fact they use CANNED MUSHROOMS!!! What self respecting cook uses canned mushrooms. Mushrooms aren't even that expensive. It is possible that canned mushrooms cost MORE than fresh mushrooms. I found it completely unacceptable that a place that claims to sell pizza would overlook the very simple concept of fresh ingredients making a better pizza.
We should have saved our money, Bought a frozen Tombstone Pizza and stayed home. At least they use fresh mushrooms before they flash freeze their pizza.
