Gotta give Al's a "five." Picked up a pizza to eat at our va-ca home after two hour drive. Great pizza provided on time. Sit-down setting is not so inviting, but food is great.

Just like the neighborhood places where I grew up, Big Al's is nothing fancy but the pizza is GREAT! Just about the perfect pie for my tastes-- although they're known for their deep dish pies, our 10" Mini pie had a pan style crust and...More
