If you want a great sandwich or even some meatballs Big Al's is always a good choice. Lunch time is always busy, but worth the wait. Friendly and efficient. Their salads are fresh and delicious. And the servers will even smile...

Since the sandwiches are made fresh it does take a little while for them to be made but believe me, they are well worth the wait!!!!! The roast beef is by far my favorite!!!!!! The prices are quite good as well!!! We stop by Big Al's on our way to our Cool Beans cruise every year and bring the sandwiches... More

About 10 days ago, at the beginning of our three week stay in Marco, we stopped by Big Al's (after receiving advise on TA) for a menu and took home a few sandwiches and some potato salad. After tasting the Sun Wrap, Combo and Italian Hoagies, and knowing we were hosting and extended family lunch on Saturday, we decided to... More

You won't be disappointed by the hearty sandwiches or salads, but the seating is a bit dicey at best. You feel as if you are sitting ob top of everyone -- because you are. Would recommend calling ahead and taking the food out to enjoy it fully. The quality is good and so is the value --the atmosphere is like... More

The beautiful girls who take care of the orders and make the sandwiches are Always Happy to see me and My Service Dog Kane!! This is not the typical reaction I've gotten from other Restaurants...

Great stop. Drive by McDonalds, Subway and Blimpies to Big Als. It reminds you of the local place that has great food, great atmosphere but might look a little shaky on the outside! Fresh food, great service, well priced for the taste. A little more expensive than your chain restaurants but spend the couple extra dollars to enjoy a lot... More

We're locals and this is one of our standard spots for lunch, which we usually hit around 2 to avoid the noon rush, particularly during season. We usually call in orders for takeout, as this is a cafeteria style spot with tight spacing. Service can be slow during rush time, but staff are great and the results are always very... More

This is where the carpenters, electricians, etc. eat lunch. Not expensive, but the food is good and fresh (though not all that plentiful). Just fine!

I've been eating here for years, never had a bad meal and always get super friendly service with a smile. Soups are great too.
