My college roommate is from Birmingham. She constantly told me about Al's and their famous potatoes. One weekend, we decided to go to Birmingham just to get away from all the hassles of being full time college students. By the time we got there, we felt like we were dying slowly of famine. We went into Al's and she ordered... More

Food is always great and consistent. This visit was my first time getting the Gyro and I was very pleased. The bakers a great (especially the fried chicken with ranch instead of BBQ sauce). The chicken fingers are AMAZING! Overall, great food option day or night. They're a 24/7 restaurant! Even holidays

Al's never ceases to please. I personally love the gyros and gyro plates but my brother always gets the potato the size of a newborn and finds a way to eat most if not all. The place isn't pretty but the food dang sure makes up for it.

This is the casual late night eats for all UAB students, don't miss out! It's a right of passage. Everything's great, but don't expect a pretty atmosphere, it's all about the food.

My wife and I had lunch in there today and it was Wonderful! She had the chicken special with salad, rice, humus, and pita bread. I had the lamb gyro that came with lettuce, tomato, and some other fixins that made it fabulous. It normally comes with French fries but they allowed a substitution of a small salad. It was... More

At least in our family it does. We get the shrimp stuffed potato with double shrimp. We still leave a lot of potato cause they are the size of shoes!! We just grab three forks and pig out. Very popular with students and bachelors because 1 take out box is 2 big meals or three small ones. Popular local dive

Visited for lunch with friends. Been there several times before. Tried the bakers, burger, kafta plate, and chicken fingers. Certainly has a Mediterranean taste that you'll never forget. Prices are reasonable and the service is fast.
