Living in California there are certain foods you just cant get or if you can get it, you cant copy. You might hot dog is a simple food to make? WRONG.... Al's Hot dog stand is the place for a REAL back east hot dog. I have never had one better. Top it off with a Vanilla Coke and you are in HEAVEN. The Softshell Crab Sandwich is absolutely awesome, the Lobster roll is phenomenal. You gotta stop at this litte gem right off RTE 8 in Naugatuck.

The first warm day every year, I take a ride here on my motorcycle. That is not my last stop every year. They have a few odd ball tables inside and older picnic tables outside but what really brings everyone back to this place time and time again. They have what you need, great hotdogs at a great price.

This place has great food. Keep in mind the type of restaurant it is. A few tables inside, zero decor, picnic tables/patio outside and take-out windows where the staff takes your order.

We love Al's. My husband always gets some type of hot dog, numerous toppings to choose from. I am crazy about their fried shrimp. Always perfect and tender, have almost duplicated their recipe at home. Great fries and fried broccoli. They have birch beer! This is reason enough to love them.

The staff is a hoot. Very personable and they really move you right through. Hardly ever a wait. You won't be disappointed!

Went there with my wife and kid for a quick bite. The "Hippo" dog was great as was the bacon cheese burger, but the atmosphere was strange. The tables and chairs you ate at looked like they were taken from the principles office in the 1960's.
