Yum

Visited with some friends, food portions are large and very delicious. Being a short hop from both uab and five points is a plus. Pleasant outdoor sitting area, if you just want something small the chili cheese fries are very tasty.

Holy mother of god. Have you ever had a cheesteak rolled up in a fresh pita? Went to Al's after a Sunday night concert and was not disappointed. When we walked in the place was packed, and we knew we were in for a treat. My friends and I loved it. Cheeseburger was average, but cheesesteaks, bakers, and gyros were... More

We had the loaded baked potato. 3 of us ate it and still did not finish it. Great food. Mint tea was great also.

This is one of my favorite places to go when I am craving something to both fill me up and taste incredible! Personally I LOVE their baked potatoes! They are huge and so gooey and perfect! Another thing I love is their chicken fingers.. Very well cooked, whatever they coat them with is amazing and their seasoning on the fries... More

I always get the Turkey Melt or BBQ Chicken Baker, which is the largest loaded potato you've ever seen. It's so fantastic! Their fries are fantastic. Their honey mustard dipping sauce is great, and this is coming from a honey mustard Connoisseur. It's great sitting outside, if you can find a table. It's very small inside, so just expect close...

Al's offer a nice menu for lunch and has some good gyros but not much has been done to keep up the seating or kitchen. Worth a visit but do not expect too much.

The food was hot and fresh. Not a bad place to eat at in the middle of the night. The place could be a little cleaner but I guess that might take away from the atmosphere.

I came for lunch after reading some good reviews. It was close and I was hungry. Had the tabouli salad and vegetable soup. Nothing very special. The pita bread was cold and chewy and the soup tasted kind of old. The salad was OK. With tip it was 18 dollars....I think this will be my only visit.

You've got to sit out on the patio and eat cheese fries with Ranch sauce before you can say you've experienced Birmingham like a native.

I've been enjoying the gyro at Al's for years and it's not because of the atmosphere or fantastic service... It's because of the great food. Always consistent quality, basic fare at reasonable prices. A must local gem!
