Ok, but, not the same as when Al owned it..Not bad just different and lost some of its personality. Move on!

This is my favorite local place for pizza. They also serve nice meals. We usually do take out although you can eat at the restaurant.

Total honesty up front--Al has been a friend of mine since high school--BUT if the food was average or bad, I simply would not do a review.

I've been a patron for a whle. I tried it out with his 2 slices/drink special..and it was great. Been bringing friends over for years now. This is my first review. Al, the owner, is very easy going. The place gets very busy at lunch, but things keep moving. They have prepaired pizzas also...onions/green peppers is one of my favorites!... More

NJ is full of local, family owned Pizza restaurants. Most people have their favorite place that they frequent a few times per month. My place is Al’s Pizza Works in Toms River. Al’s has been in the same place for over 20 years. It is a very popular place for lunch time eat-in and dinner take-out. Al’s has a good... More
