Morgantown Edition: Pizza Al's (Sunnyside)

Pizza Al's 4Pizza Al's 4Pizza Al's may have finally broken the terrible track record of restaurants in this location. The corner of University Avenue and Campus Drive has had a run of various restaurants: Shiftace, Night Owls, Kenyan Cafe, etc. And to be honest, I don't understand why this small corner never does well.

Pizza Al's has, hopefully, changed that. One of the town's most beloved pizza joints has taken up shop on University Avenue - just closer to the Downtown Campus this time. There's a short-term parking lot next to the building, but I'm guessing they're going to be getting a lot more foot traffic anyway.

We ordered a large pizza - half pepperoni, half cheese. For the four of us, with drinks, I think it came out to about $5 each.

Pizza Al's 4Same excellent quality. Thin pizza with a layer of melted cheese. Delicious - not too greasy - and piping hot. Definitely the best recipe in town.

It's nice the Downtown Campus has another lunch option - and especially a lunch option that consists of the best pizza in town. It definitely does look a bit more shabby than the other University location with some worn interior and painting - but I don't think the crowd they're catering to minds.
