“Fastest service and best subs in town!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

If you're looking for a quick bite to eat, make sure to drop by Al's. This place gets packed with tourists and college students and there's good reason for it. One reason for the crowd is due to the food being so much better than anything else in the area if you only have 30 minutes for lunch. additionally, this place is designed to handle a high volume of people. if there are 20 people in front of you, you'll be almost guaranteed to be out of there in less than 10 minutes. My favorite is the Bellino (steak and cheese). Portion wise, a small should be enough for almost anyone and a large is easily 2 meals.
