I hope there dine in service is better than their delivery! I order the steak sub and chef salad ,the sub had hardly any meat on it, mostly lettuce. The "chef" salad was mostly lettuce, very little meat and cheese. When I ordered they said 25 minutes so 1 hour later I called to check and they said it's on... More

This is one place that we NEVER MISS while in the Manistee area. I would suggest trying the deep dish pizza as it always comes loaded with your favorite toppings. Nothing fancy about the interior which badly needs some improvements but....this is a pizza parlor and not a steakhouse. For what they offer, it would be hard to find a... More

They put on loads of toppings and the cheese and sauce are liberal too. I have taken my extended family of 20 there on many occasions and there is something all of them like. They actually made a pizza (chicken and garlic) which wasn't on their menu. Friendly workers a plus.

We had the hand tossed crust, with pepperoni, sausage and onions...it was a great pie. It was done on time and piping hot when we got it home. I will get their pizza again when I'm up there again

We came back from a day in Traverse City so that we could eat dinner at Big Al's and we are So Glad that we did! Great Chicago-style pizza for a great price! The mozzarella sticks were really good as well! The service was friendly and the atmosphere was fun!

Really good pizza! Not the cleanest place but not dirty either. Classic pizza place atmosphere. If you want classic pizza, this is the place to go.

I loved this place as a kid but now that I have to eat Gluten free, I can't eat there. They do have a "gluten free" pizza but they are not careful AT ALL with it. They didn't use a clean pizza cutter or wash the flour off their hands. If you need to eat gluten free, keep driving. I... More

Everyone in the area said we needed to try Big Al's, so we did, but were pretty underwhelmed. It was really busy- so ordering took a while, and the inside dining was stifling hot, so we moved outside to the picnic tables. The pizza really isn't that good, sadly. We had high hopes- but honestly, I think Little Ceaser's has... More

Pizza was good and inexpensive. But the dining room was under renovation, and things were a little dirty. There was only one TV, and it was on the weather channel. They did not have a liquor license, so no beer with our pizza!
