“The best pizza”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Although we were there with a large group, service was good and the pizza delicious. Love their thin crust cheesy sausage pizza the most. Can't find pizza this good anywhere near where we live, so this is a mandatory stop when in LaCrosse.

“Fony Reviews / Beware”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Read the reviews, do you find a consistent theme? [ Expansive menu?] Don't be fooled! Poor service! Poor quaility food! Go find a better pizza joint, this one had its day in the sun.

“Big Al's yummy pizza”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Expansive menu. We ordered 3 specialty pizzas via delivery. Order was delivered a few minutes earlier than promised! The pizzas were covered with nonstick wrap within the box to keep them extra hot! Very good unique thin crust.

“Typical Wisconsin Tavern”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Big Al’s is located on a bar street in La Crosse surrounded by their competition. The decor is rustic and colorful with old signs, beer advertisements, and mockup bi-planes suspended from the ceiling.
The most memorable part of my visit to Big Al’s is the pizza and the gracious staff. We sampled several versions of their pizzas, but Big Al’s Special Pizza was the best. Jalapeño poppers were good but would have been even better if Jack or Pepper Jack had been used instead of cheddar. Over all great time at Big Al’s. There was a wide selection of cold beer and food with a focus on great pizza which they pull off with ease.
The bartenders and serving staff were relaxed and intent on providing wonderful service. The Wisconsin accents added to the colorful experience. I am ready to go back on my next trip to La Crosse.
