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

These people know how to make pizza. They load the pizzas up with toppings and grease. The subs are also great! Make sure to ask for Big Al Sauce. The place is definitely a great family restaurant and amazing food for a low price.

Super casual (paper plates, plastic forks) with outdoor seating. Nothing fancy but people are very friendly and pizza was pretty good. I would go back to this place again.

Big Al's offers great pizza with a very reasonable price. Their deep dish Chicago style we purchased was offered with two toppings and they even split the toppings on each half for more yummy goodness.

We've ordered from here twice now. Both times the pies were grease soaked. Tonight to top it off, the driver must have taken a corner quickly, as the toppings had slid mostly off of one of the two we got. Next time, perhaps we order earlier, from a different chain.

Thank NukedNative
