For an evening with friends wanting some great La Crosse pizza - Al's the place to go. It's crowded on Friday nights - popular place in La Crosse. But pizza and food and drink are pretty good.

Always great pizza, still a fun atmosphere with well priced cocktails and beer, and kid friendly. It is a favorite for many years, and its pizza quality remains high (and delicious). The Daiquiris are affordable and quite yummy. Kids are welcome, and they will like it too!

Excellent pizza and cheezy bread. The beer is always good and cold. My only complaint is the last time we were here they added on an 18 percent tip. There were only two in our party, so it was not because we were in a large group. When I inquired I was told they do this when it is busy... More

We have been coming to Big Al's for years. The atmosphere is great and pizza is destination worthy. Big Al's special is always the way to go. Pitchers of root beer for the kids and pitchers of beer for us. It takes a while for the perfection they call pizza so order an appetizer and you won't be sad. It's... More

This is absolutely the World's best pizza. It is loaded with the toppings of your choice. They are not skimpy with them. The crust is just right. You will not go away hungry.

In my opinion, this is the place to go to get a great pizza and beer. The facility is good for families and the service is friendly.

We ordered the meat, meat, meat pizza. I should say he did, without looking at the menu. My job was paying the bill and tipping. His job was eating until he was full and having leftovers for a study session tomorrow. I ate way more than I told him I probably would, but he still had slices to box. A... More

Service was ok, gentlemen was friendly but we asked for separate checks. Couldn't be done with large group but was told would have done it if not serving everyone alone. Food was just ok. Not a fan of the atmosphere.

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.
