We have eaten here for years, dating back to their old location down the street. Always good value, always good food, always great service. Not fancy, and not a huge menu, but what they have is so good. Inexpensive beer pitchers, and fairly priced entrees. We particularly like the burgers, fish, reuben sandwiches (awesome!!) and the ribs.

I have been here at least 10 times and almost always get the cheeseburger and fries. The fries are pretty good, but the burgers are delicious and cooked to order. Lots of other good food on the menu, but haven't tried too much.

Enjoy the beer, burgers and fish fry for a good friday night quick dinner. Dine in the outdoor seating during the summer.

seriously, my in laws took me here raving about the food. All I can say is that this place is obviously living off of a long gone tradition of good food, not what it is serving now. I have had a better burger at a bowling alley, and the sides reminded me of upscale hospital food. I would have given... More

Come here for a family gathering. Burgers are good, ribs are good. French fries are great! Alfies has been here for forty plus years and you can generally count on a good burger, fries and a beer for a reasonable price. Occasionally, they have an off night but not very often. Almost always crowded. Friendly and fast service.

If you want a quick burger, Alfie's has been the go-to place for decades. It's just down Roosevelt Road from McDonald's, and for about the same money as you'd spend @ McD's, you can get something resembling real food.

If you have NEVER had good homemade cooking, then this food will appeal to you. All I can say is: Congealed, Rubbery, Acrid, Putrid. Inedible. Went to Wendy's down the street to eat after leaving Alfie's alf on the plate.

I met a client for lunch here this week and what a disappointment. The waitress had some chest rash(maybe she should have worn a turtleneck?) The salad my client received was bland, plain, and wet looking and my burger was completely tasteless! The grilled onions were mass grilled, oily, and runny. I asked to have a few onion rings instead... More

Not fancy but very good. BBQ ribs are very tasty. Fish fry on Friday is as expected - no surprises but solid food. Burgers are the mainstay here. This is a great casual dining place.

I have lunch with my father every sunday. He is getting up there, and I try to spend as much time with him as I can. Every sunday, we choose a place that is close, convenient, and with good food. Alfies has consistently very good food, at good prices, with nice atmosphere (a little dated, but he digs it). Service... More
