A lot of different items you can order. You are given a number but you must be patience in waiting. they don't always go in order. Every thing is hand made.

For as long as I can remember Big Al's has been the place that all the locals go for a great sandwich! And Candy at the counter is as sweet as her name!

This is a very busy deli making fresh sandwiches.
I'll agree with most of the previous reviews but have to wonder about something.

On my last visit I ordered a pastrami sandwich on french roll. The pastrami looked good and was good. They asked if I wanted it warmed up and said I yes, so they popped the sandwich in the microwave.
This brings me to my question. Is it not common knowledge that when bread is microwaved for a while it becomes inedible after it cools down?
I ate the first half while it was warm and enjoyed it. By the time I got the the second half the bread had cooled and I forced to toss half of it because I couldn't get my teeth through it.
I mentioned this to the girl at the register as I walked out and she looked at me like I was speaking Latin to her.
I'll go back, but not for the pastrami.

The place is packed all year, well after the snowbirds have left. Great food! Nice people! This is a favorite of the Marco Island locals and visitors alike! Excellent rolls, (Philadelphia Style)!
