Description: Big Al's Island Grill is now open in Salt Mills Plaza. The restaurant made its grand opening in November, and offers a delicious variety of burgers and other entrees. The decor is that of a 50's diner, and will bring you down a trip through memory lane with its checkerboard design and red accents. Though the restaurant is the "new kid on the block," owner Doug Camozzi is not new to the restauranteur business. He is also the owner and manager of The Green Bean Cafe in Turtle Cove. Doug opened Big Al's Island Grill in honor of his father, a seasoned restauranteur himself, running successful businesses in San Francisco. On the Menu Big Al's offers quite a unique selection of burgers including their New Mexican Burger, the Sicilian Burger and the Smashed Onion. Fries are offered in shoestring, krinkle or waffle cut. Burgers are not the only meals you will find at Big Al's. Don't miss out on their wraps and salads, grilled chicken, fish or steak options. Gluten-free and vegetarian choices are available too. If you think you can take on a challenge, try the Slider Challenge at Big Al's. If you can finish the meal within 30 minutes, you get a free t-shirt. Be sure to stop by and visit Big Al's Island Grill if in the Grace Bay area.

“best burger so far”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Visited lunchtime, welcomed straight away; I was asked to choose my food order and drinks at the bar but I guess I could have waited for table service..Picked the table I wanted and within 10 mins I had a huge burger and fries sitting in front of me... I asked for a chicken burger even though I couldn't see it on the menu list and the reply was sure no proble...how refreshing.....
Music was playing and they had a TV on with the news but with the sound off, my thought is have one or the other... ie something like MTV with sound or news with sub-titles so at least I could read what was going on... Anyway that's a minor point as the food was so nice I was soon working my way through the meal... It tasted as good as it looked.. I thought to myself this is the burger that's always promised by other burger chain places, you know the sort the one with the stupid clown...however unlike those places where the burgers look flat as if a car had just run over it, this was tall and full of fresh produce..

The room was clean & nicely air conditioned..I found the booth type fixed seating too close to the table but there were normal table and chairs.. Frankly you might possibly find a better burger on the island, but at $10 I very much doubt it...
To sum up, the price was good, the staff were excellent and the meal just right...I will be back very soon...

“Big ALS Burger experience Provo.”
Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

Excellent place to eat in Provodencials turks and Caicos, this is the best burger I have had in a while. Big Al's 12 oz. burger isn't for the weak, it will definitely fill you up. Very reasonably priced and Service was 5 stars with polite staff, which goes above and beyond to make your experience excellent. Been coming to the island for awhile and will definitely make this a routine place to dine. Located in salt mills shopping area easy parking and great location. Very pleased.

“Great Burgers & 50's Diner atmosphere”
Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

We had an excellent burger, sweet potato fries and some wine tonight. Service was friendly and the waiter was very attentive. The 50's American diner atmosphere is very well done including all the music from the 50's. It makes you feel like you just walked back in time. Lots of booths, tables and stools at the counter. I don't think many people know about Big Al's yet since it's very new. Highly recommended if you're looking for a good burger and don't want to pay a lot of money for a meal! It's not easy to find reasonably priced restaurants in Grace Bay. But this is one. We had fun. Located in Salt Mills Plaza. Their WiFi works well too, if you need it.

“A world class burger”
Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

OK, after four days of great seafood in Provo (and maybe a little too much Rum the night before) I was craving a good burger and fries. Al's delivered beyond expectations.

The burger could compete with any from back home and was one of the best I've had overall. The selection of creative options looked delicious. Price is good on a expensive island.

Al's is a good spot for a great cheeseburger in paradise!
