“"NOT SO JERK CHICKEN"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

The jerk chicken was certainly not jerk chicken and was tasteless as well as half cooked! The service from the Cashier was great though however the server horrible mixed up the order and when I asked for it t be corrected just scraped out the potato salad and added fresh salad which was sloppy!

“carnival time maybe”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

i ate here around carnival time so perhaps the staff were tired, otherwise i have no excuse for the atitiude, also the food was ok, but just ok. every second item i asked for was not available. this establishment is newly opened so i am hopeful it will get better and not worse.

“A quick and delicious meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Al's Diner is located just off the Diego Martin Highway at the Crystal Stream intersection so that it is very easy to come off the highway to get a meal and then return to the highway. Their extended hours from 5am until 11pm makes it very easy to get either breakfast, lunch or dinner. The menu is a varied one with Caribbean items such as coconut bake and saltfish or smoked herring or sada roti and bhaigan, black eye peas and rice with stewed chicken or beef plus more international items such as a variety of omelets and various grilled meats or fish. The food is very tasty, the service is quick and the staff is pleasant. You can dine inside, on the verandah or outside under the umbrellas.
