I frequently eat here for lunch. The service is exceptional and the food is fantastic. On Thursday's they have Turkey legs that will make you feel like a cave man. And on Friday's they make "Mama's Mac n Cheese" - wow. My momma never mac-n-chees that good! (sorry mom!)
Everything on the menu is tasy, but I usually settle in with a plate of pulled pork, cornbread, collared greens and baked beans (or mac-n-cheese).
You really can't go wrong with this place. It's a block or so off of 7th ave - so it's a little off the beaten path. I highly recommend Al's - it's totally worth your time! And trust me - you'll keep coming back!

Just a block off Ybor, this unassuming joint is a nice respite from the bars and thugs. Al himself serves up dinner. The pulled pork is super moist, the turkey was just a tad on the dry side. The southern style potato salad is heavenly, just like mom made.

This is well worth the trip. Wether you live in the neighborhood or are just visiting, Al's is a great choice.

Simplicity, lovely owners, authentic good old southern atmosphere, great smoked (out-back) foods-everything homemade including the sauces and pies-the sweet potatoe pie was delicous. Actually known as "Big Al's..
