“The gold standard”
Reviewed 11 April 2011

We went to Big Al's for lunch as well as take -out a number of times during our vacation and we never grow tired of the quality and the service. There are some new restaurants added since last year and Big Al's stands tall when compared to them. My son is a meatball sub fan and we compared the offerings of Guy and Lisa's Philly Grill with big al's. We all concluded that the big al's meatball subs is the gold standard to which all others are measured. The soups and salads are homemade and the Pastrami melt is outstanding as well.

This place keeps on doing it right!

“Best Sandwich On The Island”
Reviewed 24 August 2010

The title says it all. Big Al's is the best place in Marco Island to grab a sandwich. Everything is wonderful form the bread, cheese, to the meats. It's a weekly must.

“Great Sandwich”
Reviewed 27 March 2009

Stopped here for a quick bite to eat after having driven past many times saying "we should stop there." So very glad we did. "These Guyz" workin there, are great! We ordered The Classic Italian, and our friend got the chicken salad and side of potato salad. Will definitely be going back to this place. Just so you know, unless you are a BIG eater, their sandwiches are big enough to split between two. Can't wait to try the Cuban next time.
