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.

Love, love, love the pizza here! Quick service and tasty za. Laid back atmosphere for a casual date night or a family outing. You can get a beer or try their amazing grasshopper, but make sure you share it. It is HUGE!!! Super tasty too.

We came with a large group for happy hour and stayed for dinner. $2.50 margaritas, five dollar wings… What more do you need? The wings were delicious and so are the margaritas. We had pizza for dinner it was so delicious. It's an older place with a cool vibe. Great place to go!

Stopped for lunch at Big Al's and had a very nice meal. I have spaghetti with meatballs and my friend had a calzone. The food was very good with large portions. They have a nice selection of craft beers along with a full service bar.

Stopped here for dinner with some friends on a fishing trip. We ordered a large pizza with custom toppings and side salads. The salads came out within ten minutes and the pizza came out in around 20-25 minutes. Overall the pizza was good but was a little bit too greasy. The worst part of the whole visit was the restroom... More
