“Average Bar Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Stopped in for a quick sandwich on a late Saturday afternoon. Wife had a hamburger and fries and I had a chicken sub, with a wing appetizer. Wings were decent, the sandwiches were mediocre. Just a small container of ketchup was offered for a rather large serving of greasy fries. Wife used most of the ketchup on her hamburger and didn't have enough for her sandwich. Service was slow and our waitress didn't come back until we were done eating. Much better in Altoona although they were crowded.

“Food is amazing for corner bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

BEST wings (huge selection), great pizza, and house dressing is just down right addicting. Atmosphere is hip, always a game on the TV's and the beer is cold. One of my favorites in Altoona if I'm looking for great simple food served in a hip bar atmosphere.

“Fun sports bar, great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2011

We were looking for a fun, non-chain place for dinner during our trip to see a Penn State Game. Al's was near the hotel in Altoona where we were staying and was recommended by locals on the Chowhound board. There is a traditional bar area as well as a dining area with large tables and lots of tvs. Then menu has a nice selection of options. We ordered nachos and pizza and watched some football. The food was great, the service was excellent. We would definitely go back if ever in the area again. Also, lots of parking available across the street.
