Alberto’s

The Chicago-style slices are a late night favorite.

April 2006 Dirt Cheap Eats

Some pizza lovers prefer the cracker-crisp thin crust, others the weighty, oozing-with-cheese stuffed crust. Whichever camp you belong to, there's no disputing that this below-street-level carryout in DC's Dupont Circle serves something still too rare in Washington: really good pizza. Walking by? Stop in for one of the extra-large slices ($3 for cheese, $3.50 for pepperoni, $3.75 for all others), available till 4 am on weekends. Even better, order a whole pizza scattered with several of the nearly 40 toppings (medium thin-crust starts at $10.95, medium stuffed crust $17.95). It's worth the wait.
