The lady that helped us was very nice. Food was good, but be sure to specify if you want any condiments or your sandwich will come plain. A bit expensive for this type of place, but we would definitely come back!

Took my out of town guest to Big Al's for mid week late lunch; food smelled great; felt cost was NOT a good value, food heavy- lots if bread, and service was slow.
I often see folks sitting in the outside 3-4 tiny tables on busy corner; but we were not impressed. One good thing: parking lot right behind Big Al's. You decide. I tried it-- will pass for other great places in the Atlantic Ave area.

First let me say I lived in Philly back in the 70's. I know first hand the attitude of it's people. Some find it hard to take because you never have to guess what their thinking. Secondly let me say the Philly Steak Sandwich that you get there are great.
Now to Big Al's. Linda and I traveled back to Delray to get a cute tee shirt for our 6mo old grandson. As we were leaving driving down Atlantic Ave. I spotted this corner shop with the original Philly Steak advertised. I told my wife and she said, "stop and try it if you want". Without hesitation I turned the car around drove to a close parking spot and got just what it said, an "orginal Philly" with melt in your mouth tender steak, fried onions and what makes it "original" "Cheese Whiz" all on a bun from Philly. This sandwich is just as I remember from those days long ago sloppy and absolutely delicious. Linda had a hot dog which was a "Nathan's" of course. She liked it very much also. We had to get fries, cause you have to have fries with the steak. That was the only thing that doesn't let me give an excellent rating to Big Al's. They were a good frozen F.F, but fresh cut would be better in my opinion.
I spoke with Adam who runs the Delray store. Adam is Big Al's son. Here's another part of Philly you will find at Big Al's Steak's, Philly attitude. Although Adam has taken quite a bit of the sharp edge off.
All in all if you are ever in Delray please do yourself a favor and try one of these sandwiches. You will not be disappointed. If you find it not good, well all I can say, with true Philly attitude, "you have a problem".
