Description: Originally opened and ran by Alan and Alvin Muenzenberger in 1979, Big Al's Pizza has been a staple for the La Crosse community for 40 years! Big Al's was started You'll be surrounded by vintage Americana, friendly staff, and all of the pizza you can eat at Big Al's Pizza. Each day we make our pizza dough from scratch. We make your order when you place it. We use 100 percent real Wisconsin Mozzarella cheese, locally purchased vegetables - cut fresh daily and top quality meats. We don't skimp out on the toppings. We use the same Al's Original secret crust, pizza and sauce recipes that have been used to create this iconic La Crosse pizza since it's opening in 1979. In this new chapter of Big Al's story, we want to ensure that generations of families are able to enjoy the same great tastes that they have always known. Big Al's most recent ownership change happened in the Spring of 2019. We can't wait to see you!

We had Date Night with three other couples. The taco pizza was very good. It came with sour cream and salsa on the side. Easily fed 4 women.

What are the pizza for pick up on a Saturday night. When I arrived the place is very busy staff was very welcoming yet directed me to the bar to pick up the order. I went there and within a few minutes my order was ready. When we got back to our room we enjoyed the pizza it was very good. Would like to return to dine in next time

4 of us chose this place because they offered gluten free cauliflower crust. Be aware that they can’t promise no cross contamination which is stated on their menu. Our waitress was very nice. Price of the gf pizza was quite high therefore 4 stars.

Stopped into Big Al's on a weekend getaway... Had some sandwiches which were off the charts good! Also ordered wings to go... meaty and delicious! Tried a piece of the taco pizza, which was a meal in itself! Would definitely go back! The bartender was attentive and very friendly! Will definitely go back again and again!

Eight of us went to Big Al's following a college soccer game. It's in a nice location and they were able to arrange tables to accommodate our needs. In addition to pizza they have several appetizers and wide selection of beer. A couple ordered individual pizzas, but some of us ordered at either end of the spectrum, a spicy meat pizza and vegetarian pizza. Both were excellent.
