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.

I have eaten here a couple of times and the barbecue is good but a little over priced. The quantity is great for a big appetite but too much for smaller appetites. The service is excellent.

Loved the BBQ! Ribs are very tasty, brought some home with us! :) The service was awesome! They checked on us and we even got complimentary homemade ice cream! Haven't had homemade ice cream like that since I was little. Would definitely stop by again if we passed through sometime!

Brisket sandwich is always good. Do not forget the potato salad. Love the potato salad. ALS is one of the best places to eat in big spring.

I highly recommend the catfish and the chicken. The home style fries were not that good. Potato salad is good.

Sandwich and drink was $12-$15.00, was overrated for the price. I made a comment and the lady said, so go somewhere else and since than I have. I live here and can get more appreciation for my $$ elsewhere.
