Al's is a long-time local favorite, we've had burgers a couple of times when we pass through Ashland, good burgers, fries and shakes - could use a little cleaning but that's part of the eclectic charm!

The owner was truculent when I asked if I could have guacamole instead of sour cream on my salad. My taco salad had fatty, rubbery chicken and was covered... More

I had the burrito and it was delicious. It was tasty and great comfort food on a cold day. The service was great as well.

This place has great service and burgers, but the fries were just OK, a little worse actually. I really want to go back on my next visit, but I'll probably stay away from the fries.

Big Al's is a locals institution here in Ashland. You all have one in your home town and Al's is for us, I would want someone to tell me about it if I was from out of town. Arturo the owner and his wife always make everyone feel welcome. The home made fry sauce is just the right blend of... More

My husband and I love to come here and stuff ourselves with heavy burgers and fries once in a while. ( we don't eat read meat much and never go to big name fast food places) Very reasonable price and it is delicious! We love their milk shake. According to my husband, one of the best milk shake in town.... More
