Friends took us to this place while visiting Lacrosse. Parking was a little hard to find but a short walk was well worth it. Took the recommendations of the server on wings and they were great. Had the Big Al's special pizza with all the toppings and it was terrific, not overloaded with any one ingredient. Just happen to be... More

We moved from La Crosse 27 years ago and came back with our son and his girlfriend. They still have the frog riding the bike and old car coming through the front of the building. We enjoyed the pizza and the environment.

Pizza was fantastic, but the manicotti -- one word = love. The best I've had since moving to the Midwest from New York City. That kind of deliciousness... It may take a while to receive your order, but understand it's worth it. Very zesty, and extremely tasty sauce for both the pizza and the manicotti. Served piping hot. Garlic bread... More

I loved the nostalgic signs and decor. We had a great server that was friendly and efficient. The food was hot and delicious. The dinner salad was enough for 2 people and cost $4.00. I would definitely go back! Pizza was awesome too!

Ordered pizza from Big Als to be delivered to the Radisson where we were staying. It was Fourth of July and they were extremely busy with orders. They said it would be about an hour and it was exactly. They forgot the paper plates and napkins I requested but went back to get them and returned 5 minutes later. There... More

My daughter and I stopped in for a pizza and were pleasantly surprised by very nice and attentive wait staff and great food (the beer was good for me too). There are TVs everywhere, but the noise level was not bad, even during happy hour. The Pizza was good as were the appetizers. And they have plenty of non pizza... More

When in LaCrosse, we always have to make a stop at Big Al's. Great thin crust pizza with sausage and cheese. Great downtown location with good proximity to hotels. Service very good.
