After passing and seeing the family owned for over 40 years sign we figured we would try it out. We went on a Friday night after 6:30 and the dining room wasn't very busy much to our surprise, so that was nice. We ordered a round regular crust large ham and bacon pizza with a regular antipasto salad. The pizza... More

A friend recommended this place and they were voted in the top 10 in Pizza places in Michigan so I was pretty excited but overall it was pretty average. We had a 3 topping pizza (extremely generous on toppings - could barely see the cheese) which had a good taste but the bread was a little soggy in the center.... More

All the locals recommend it, and it did not disappoint. We had pizza, subs, hot wings and pasta. It was all great. Fun atmosphere and great for kids or take out.

Order 3 subs at lunch time and husband punched them up. When we unwrapped them, mine was completely wrong -I ordered a ham and cheese, no onion with creamy Italian dressing. Ended up with a big Al's special with French dressing. So I called and the gentlemen said as soon as order was out the door they realized their mistake... More

It's great pizza for the money, If your a sub fan, get the sub sauce on your sub, Pretty quick for the amount of people being in there. In Manistee-if you want pizza and not chain restaurant pizza- Go to Big Als

Best Pizza in Michigan. PERIOD. Really wish they'd bring back the bread recipe from the 80's for their subs though.

Busy place on a Friday night. But once you have the pizza you will see why. The prices are great. 2 drinks, a large pizza and breadsticks for $25. Four of us ate and had 3 slices left over.

From the outside you might pass this by as we did numerous times, but you want to stop in if you want a good pizza. Might take awhile - they are busy and only have seating for about 25 or so.

Stopped and enjoyed the pizza. It was so good we ate it all. Went on a busy Friday night, but still found place to sit :-)

This is a combination carry-out and eat-in restaurant. Seating for maybe 30 people. You order at the counter and the food is brought out to you. Decor is less than inspiring, but that is part of the point - you get really great pizza at great prices. If those two things are at the top of your list, then go... More
