“Authentic and Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Once again - loved Al's Cafe. The service is great, the portions enormous and you won't get Cal-Mex like this anywhere.

“Varied menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Mexican food with a twist. The chili verde isn't green. It's Italian red! Plenty of food. Nice people working there.
Order the chips. Its rumored they are sprinkled with crack because they are so addicting!
As busy as they are, there is always a place to sit and you always get your coffee or soft drink refilled. If you like hot, ask for the extra hot salsa. You have to know about it to get it.
Very nice pancakes and regular breakfast fare.
They don't take credit cards, but they have an ATM by the door.

“local place, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

We have been taking folks to Al's for years, and every time, they end up becoming regulars. Great breakfasts and lunches. Combination of diner and Mexican favorites, something for everyone. Don't miss the cicken fried steak, with biscuits and gravy of course! Breakfast burrito, huevos rancheros and verde omelettes rock. Burgers and sandwiches are delicious as well. Prices are very reasonable, and portions are generous. Service is outstanding, with friendly faces we have seen for years. These professionals can handle any size group, special requests and separate checks with aplomb.
