Fantastic ribs and pizza!

Several times we have eaten in this restaurant. Always food you can depend on. Ribs are a specialty of Dan the owner who is also the chef.

While visiting family in Amherst, Ohio we wanted to take them out for lunch and they recommended this little restaurant. The food was so good. There is a huge menu, anything you might want for lunch they had. The service was great, very friendly and helpful. We will definitely go there again when in Ohio.

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.
