Great Pizza

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.

My daughter attends UW-LaCrosse, and we make sure that Big Al's is one of our destinations almost every visit. The bar/restaurant has an eclectic atmosphere, and the calzones are phenomenal. I would love to comment on additional menu items, but I just can't pass up the opportunity to indulge in the pizza-pastry. They do take a bit of time, but... More

I go to Big Al's almost once a week for lunch. They have friendly wait-staff and good food. They frequently have good lunch specials like half priced burgers. The pizza is very good but takes awhile which can be difficult on an hour lunch. The inside has some neat decor as well.

My wife and I were there a couple weeks ago after some Christmas shopping...we've always had their pizza before, which is very good, so this time I ordered a hamburger and my wife ordered a calzone. Yuk! (It didn't help that the waiter asked my wife "What would you like to drink, darlin'?" I almost popped him when he said... More

We had the Big Al's pizza and really enjoyed the light, tender crust. Will definitely be back when in La Crosse. Thanks!

We stopped in for a bite to eat. Ordered a pizza and it was the best tasting pizza we have had in a long time. The crust was perfect for thin crust. The toppings were plentiful and the cheese was abundant. A bit pricey but very good.

We stopped in on a Saturday night with 11, and we're seated right away in the bar next door. Some if the seats were sticky from spilled beer. It's a college bar, after all. The pizza was good, although not the speediest. They had a good selection of local beers on tap. The servers were good and cheerful.

Big Al's Pizza is a routine stop for us every time we visit La Crosse. The last 2 years in which we were there, we ordered take-out as we had a large group to feed. All the people that ate the pizza raved about the taste. What made the take-out even better was the price per person to eat. Had... More
