Stopped in at Big Al's after some disappointing service at Kate's Pizza Amore. A completely satisfying experience. Good service from the bar and wait staff. A family friendly traditional pizza hall environment, and above all good pizza The menu includes lots of options with a few different sauces. The pizza was loaded with cheese and topping. Not the best thin... More

We got a Medium Chicken Taco Pizza that was great, but could have been cut better! It was too much for 2 of us girls to eat. We thought the prices were a little high.

Pizza is always delicious and the place has great energy! The service is typically quick and the staff is always very friendly.

I've had multiple bad experiences here, mostly with getting orders wrong, but nothing has compared to what I experienced tonight. I ordered pizza and a burger and the girl who took the order seemed very out of sorts, but I chalked it up to her maybe being new. The order came and as the driver left, I realized I had... More

The pizza is awsome at Big Al's. We always get the thin crust and it has never let us down. The prices on the pizza is a little high but they do offer coupons on their website. The beer is cold and pretty reasonable.

I don't know what has happen to the place but it just wasn't as good pizza as it use to be. I ordered by phone to pick up they were late by 30 minutes, was bummed when finally got to eat it. Maybe the other Al places are better. Recommend South Lanes for good old fashion pizza.

The best thin crust Pizza that I can remember eating. This place is Awesome except on this evening we waited three drinks until the za was done. This totaled about an hour, but when it arrived we were very happy. We will go back again for sure! We had the pepperoni with extra cheese.

We went to Big Al's based on Trip Advisor reviews and we loved it. Right in downtown La Crosse, we found street parking. Lots of big screen TVs, plenty of beers and great Italian food. I went for pizza but ended up ordering their baked spaghetti with sausage and pepperoni and it was fantastic! It came with garlic toast which... More
