We were surprised to find good barbecue along with fabulous fries. And then treated to wonderful homemade vanilla ice cream that took me back to childhood. But leave the banana pudding alone it was the disappointment of the meal.

The locals love the potato salad. The barbeque is not what it once was pretty flavorless. Slow service nd not very friendly. They pretty much have priced themselves out of realistic . We rarely go anymore.

My team and I were in Big Spring for work. We decided to give this place a try. We were satisfied. The catfish was very good! The service could have been better. I'd would eat there again if in the neighborhood for sure!

They have real fries and real cheese! It was a little pricey at $12 for a small burger, fries, and a drink but I would recommend it! Oh wait, they just offered me free ice cream... totally worth every penny!

We order a beef and its like 3 slice per plate taste is not so good ... beans is salty but price is expensive paid 30$ for 2 person on cafeteria.

Stopping at Al's is a must whenever I'm in Big Spring. Personally, my fave is the chopped beef sandwich with sweet relish and a side of slaw. But my kids would disagree - they love the amazing catfish. Breaded just right, never fatty, and fried up beautifully. And free ice cream for dessert - how can you go wrong?

I have been eating there since I was a little girl! I wouldn't eat it anywhere else. Chopped beef sandwiches and potato salad are a must!!! Love love love this place! Locally family owned and operated for over 40 years!

We got sandwiches to go and it was terrible. Dry, no sauce, the potato salad was a mixture of mashed potatoes and pickle juice. At $9 a sandwich, I expected much better

We love the food here, but always get grumpy over the price. We realize that the price of meat has gone up, but no way the sides offered are costly to prepare. Being seniors we can only dine here once in a great while.
