We've been living in the area for 3 years, and already have a set of favorites where we return regularly. But I recently decided to look on the web for undiscovered gems, and found Sal and Al's. From the outside, nothing special to look at. But you walk into the retro atmosphere of an indpt family-run restaurant, with a more... More

Ate here as a family last Saturday. My Dad eats here multiple times per week! I always get the perch dinner or the Route 66. Their soups are always fantastic. This time, I tried the buffalo chicken soup. I could have made a meal of just this dish; very tasty. Imagine buffalo chicken dip in soup form with potatoes and... More

Neighborhood gem for sure. Nothing fancy, but food is fresh and home-cooked. Menu varies from burgers to pierogies, gyros to pizza and some other local favorites as well. Clean place, good service and very reasonably priced. Good place to take the kids.

Very cute place. Love the atmposhere. Went during lunch and wasn't to over crowded. My husband got the Diner burger and it was huge. The meat was juicy and thick. I got the Diner melt and it was full of flavor and the bun was to a perfect buttery crisp. Best part, we got a small sample bowl of the... More

I was confused when I walked in. It was not how I remembered it to be - this restaurant used to be open and inviting with a unique decor. There seemed to be two distinct sides of the restaurant, however we waited to be seated for a while even though we heard workers talking. I was surprised that incoming customers... More

This place serves all the staples burgers, meatloaf, etc. There milkshakes are the best thing on the menu. The food is always served fast and the staff is great. My young kids love this place.
