This is a must have if you are visiting Albert Lea and/or have never experienced it. They've used the same recipe for 25 years and it cannot be beat by any of the chain pizza places. Dine-in or Carry out.

What jakej,s lacks in amenities definitely makes up for it in their homade thin crust pizza. Fast friendly service and cold beer equals a great pizza place experience

Kind of a hole in the wall place, but most of the best places are!!!! I tried the taco pizza and it was amazing! Next time I will try something simpler that doesn't hide the wonderful crust and cheese.

We stopped here for dinner Saturday night. The reviews said this place had the best pizza. I don't know about the best but it was really good and they had a really good selection of specialty pizzas.

Our kids live in different states. Whenever they come home to Albert Lea, their trip has to include at least one stop at Jake's Pizza! We all love it!
