This place has a good beer selection and the three HUGE TVs are awesome but it is HOT AS BALLS in here. Until they can fix the ventilation problems I won’t be back.

We were just at Big Al's tonight to watch the BSU football game on its 55-foot screens. The food is always good, waitstaff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the crowd is enthusiastic. It's a great evening out.

This was a great way to spend the day as a family. Food was good. It can be costly but we had a specific plan for our day and didn't spend too much.
