Although it's been around for many, many years, I feel this place is a hidden gem. They have excellent service, very generous portions and the best cook and seasoning on a steak that you will ever find at a reasonable price.

Als is my favorite place to go for a good and filling meal. Must try the giant steak that’s enough to feed 3-4 people. Prices are reasonable and staff is great.

My friend and I wanted to catch Restaurant Week before she left town for a while, so we decided on Al's Charhouse. Coincidentally, Groupon sent me a "RESTAURANT WEEK DEALS" email, and Al's was in there. Decision made. I was tickled by the decor and...More

We were surprised to find this great steak place in a basement in LaGrange. Food was well above average and prices reasonable.
