Al's is a snackbar is the most wonderful sense. An institution on busy Williston Rd. in South Burlington, Vt for well over 4 decades. They serve all the standard; burgers, hot dogs, corn dogs, chicken sandwiches, and more. However, it's the fries (or frys as the sign says) that makes them a multi-generational dining spot. Crisp, brown, and hot little spud heaven served with ketchup or gravy!

Al's is amazingly fast, resembling the best philly steak joints down in the city of brotherly love. In some ways, you hope there's a slight line, just so you can decide what you want offof their diverse menu. There is no table service, but I dont I've ever heard the patrons complaining. Heck, watching the dance of the cooks just beyond the cash register is part of the fun!

Best burgers, fries, hot dogs etc., set in a 50s diner motif. This is where the locals go for fast food. Locally owned and operated for 40+ years.

KId's love Al's. It is kind of fun for the nostalgia factor, but the food is greasy. The menu is burgers, dogs, and fries (or frys), as well as friend seafood and a few wraps, and they are fine for what they are. There are many, many options: chili dogs, cheese dogs, corn dogs (my personal favorite). In the summer they also open their ice cream window and that's always a treat.

If you want fast food this is the place to go. They are fast and no what they are doing. Everything on the menu is fantastic. Stay away from McDonalds and other fast food when you are in driving distance of Al's.

Al's is known locally for their great french fries. My kids and grand kids go all the time for pints and quarts. Great 60's diner experience.
