Met various factions of my extended family here the day after Christmas to eat pizza and exchange presents, our more traditional plans having been disrupted by a power failure. I had a surprisingly yummy pizza; the crust was thin and crispy, with good flavor, and it was amply supplied with toppings. (And they cut their green peppers into small chunks,... More

This is a local institution, they've been around for over 40 years and I was told that they had the best pizza in the area. It was OK, I tried the stromboli, large portion, not too shabby.

Great pizza as always. The one thing you will notice is they do not skimp on any toppings.We like to go before the supper rush because they are always busy but alway fast and fresh.

I'm a pizza Hut kind of gal but I loved the differences in their pizza at Big Al's Pizza. I had a Hawaiian pizza and it was flatter than I'm use to but there were lots of toppings and it delivered on taste. They also have grinders as well as other menu items that I can't wait to go back... More

Service was friendly. We had two pizzas and they were alright. The BBQ chicken pizza did not have enough sauce and the chicken was processed. Didn't have the calzone but it looked good.
