The food has always been good at Al's. I especially enjoy a livermush & egg on a bun and the club sandwiches are great. The only negative I have is you never know when you will get to go in and eat or order something from the window because the lobby is closed.

He has amazing burgers! They are huge, so unless you can eat a half a pound of ground hamburger, I don't recommend a double. If you grab breakfast, it is good and he has an amazing special in the mornings! Not my first place to choose to eat, but I know it will be good when I go.

I got take out and I had asked for mustard instead of the tomato, but it was still good. For the money, it's definitely worth a try.

I ate here with a group of 4 and was not impressed at all. The burger which was highly recommended, was not good at all. It was a low quality meat and had lots of gristle in the meat. The servers seemed like they did not want to be there at all, and the service was lax. I won't be... More

Al's has been a great local place to have a great breakfast and an awesome burger. I was there for lunch yesterday with my granddaughter and great grandson. You need to be really hungry when you go in because the burgers are really big and so good. This is one of the busiest places in town at lunch time. Call... More

50's style diner. Unbelievable burgers at amazing prices! Side dishes typical diner fare, so I stick with burger and fries myself. Pickup window makes to-go ordering quick and easy.

If you want a burger this is the real deal. They are fresh hand patted and huge. This is an old time burger joint from the 60s. Beware the double burger it's huge.
