Dallas Observer's Description

Big Al's offers them big and smoky for the grizzled workingman. The eponymous sandwich comes with two meats wedged into a po-boy bun. The meat combos extend to the dinners. How about a three-meat meal of turkey, chopped beef and ribs? Everything is served cafeteria-line style, but the station hands are at the disposal of customers. You want a heaping mound of pulled pork with a one-pound, overstuffed potato? It's yours. Big Al's wants you to be happy, not hungry.

    Big Al's has great food. Ive tried the beef & pork ribs, and spicy sausage and all taste great. The staff is also friendly and remembered me & my sister everytime we go in.

  • Lici R. on 03/01/14

    Mmm great beef ribs with or without sauce. Peach cobbler wasn't bad either.

  • Isaac S. on 01/24/12

    First time here. Great food all the way around!

  • Wynn W. on 01/02/12

    They've been smoking since the early 70s. Pork ribs are my favorite.

  • Oscar C. on 04/12/14

    Beef brisket and beef ribs are fat boy approved!
