Great local pizza

The family and I were staying in Lacrosse for the weekend and wanted a good local pizza joint to try. We decided on delivery from Big Al's and it was a good choice. Pizza was thin crust with a zesty sauce. Delivery was fast, even on a Saturday. It was a bit more expensive than the chains, but... read more

Chose this place for lunch randomly one day. Love the odd stuff stuck to the ceiling--quite the atmosphere. The food was so excellent (I had the calzone--delish!) I ended up bringing my husband back, then my parents.

Under new owners, Big Al's now sports terrible food, horrible service and a rude owner. I ordered the Pink Squirrel which tasted simply like vanilla ice cream With the employees playing in the kitchen and the bartenders ignoring my request for help, the owner Mark Nolop came out and snottily asked what our problem was. He did not offer to... More

Although we were there with a large group, service was good and the pizza delicious. Love their thin crust cheesy sausage pizza the most. Can't find pizza this good anywhere near where we live, so this is a mandatory stop when in LaCrosse.

Read the reviews, do you find a consistent theme? [ Expansive menu?] Don't be fooled! Poor service! Poor quaility food! Go find a better pizza joint, this one had its day in the sun.

Expansive menu. We ordered 3 specialty pizzas via delivery. Order was delivered a few minutes earlier than promised! The pizzas were covered with nonstick wrap within the box to keep them extra hot! Very good unique thin crust.

Big Al’s is located on a bar street in La Crosse surrounded by their competition. The decor is rustic and colorful with old signs, beer advertisements, and mockup bi-planes suspended from the ceiling. The most memorable part of my visit to Big Al’s is the pizza and the gracious staff. We sampled several versions of their pizzas, but Big Al’s... More
