Making Dallas Even Better

Al’s Pizzeria Returns to Village at Bachman Lake in Dallas

Als Coming Soon photoI hope my former neighbors in Midway Hollow (“A Treasure to Keep”) will rejoice in the news: Al’s Pizzeria is re-opening. Look out, Jay Jerrier, Al’s Pizzeria, is known for its authentic New York-style pizza and could cause Zoli’s to shed a few unicorn tears. Owner Medo Pjetrovic has leased a 1,785 square-foot space in a new building under construction in the 400,000-square-foot Village at Bachman Lake at the northwest corner of Northwest Highway and Marsh Lane. The popular pizza joint opened in 1974 and closed in September 2011. Look for the doors to open “in the fall.”

    I remember enjoying the best pizza this side of New York when they first opened. And for this ex-New Yewka then only eleven years removed, it was a dream turned into reality.

    I remember the days when all I could afford for lunch was a piece of Al’s Pizza and a coke. It was always great, and one slice of Al’s will fill you up. Good to have them back.

    Al’s was, hands down, the best pizza in Dallas. I hope they can recreate the magic!

    Don’t forget… Al’s Pretzzaria had (2 stars) overall rating before it was closed. People complained of the funky stench of the whole place, the place was filthy as can be. When a dining room is like that you shouldn’t expect the food to be any better. They used cheap cheese, you’ll feel like you’re eating melted candlestick wax.

    I went to Al’s on the first day it reopened, and… Yuck!!! is all I can say. This place is dead just like it was before they closed. What I wanna know is, why reopen if you’re gonna serve yucky food?
