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!

I traveled into town, arrived to hotel late, but hungry. Waked to Al's and was suprized to see such a variety of options for an all night restaurant. Food was good servic quick, and I enjoyed eating out side in the evening.

Enjoyed being able to eat outside. January & 70 degrees, well thats Birmingham Al . Anyway, Al's cafe was busy & understandably so. They have a wide selection. Fair to pricey. Gyros, salads,etc . Will go back when I have more money, cause I saw several things on the menu that Id like to try.

A good place for a good late night burger. The food was cooked fresh. Outdoor seating on a warm night is enjoyable. Close to UAB which is nice for people out of town. Service was enjoyable

Al's is a fantastic little joint. The food is very good. The atmosphere is really neat... definitely a college diner. Open 24/7/365, no joke, rain or shine.

Al's is great. We tend to go late at night after seeing shows at Workplay or Bottletree and it's an interesing diverse crowd at 1:00 or 2:00 am-college students, night shift medical personnel from UAB eating "lunch", cops etc.When I've gone during the daylight hours it has a different vibe but the food is always good. I love to go... More
