Big Al’s is located at 715 Bald Eagle Dr, just a block or so north of Collier Blvd. in the Pelican Plaza. While you’re there, pick up some fresh seafood next door at Paradise Seafood and Gourmet Market to grill up at your vacation rental property.
The Sun King loves Big Al’s. It’s really a local’s sandwich shop – probably the best-kept secret on the island for great food at reasonable prices. The Boar’s Head meat is always a notch up from what you can get at Subway. The people that work there are warm and friendly. There’s plenty of seating, but sandwiches are great to carry to the beach or back to your rental property or hotel as well.
