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 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

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.
