Al's is open 24 hours so it definitely attracts a younger crowd, but regardless of customer base, the food is incredible! Definitely my go-to place in downtown Birmingham. The look of the building is in no way tied to the quality of the food. I always recommend the BBQ chicken baker!

Al's is always delicious! They're open late, and they've got a few really tasty vegan options. I highly recommend the hummus, the falafel wrap (which has hummus in it, too), and the fries. Word of warning to vegans, though: the veggie burger has cheese in it. Still, a great place to have a quick bite, and there are always lots... More

I've only eaten here one other time but I've NEVER forgotten about it! These massive potatoes are DELICIOUS! I ordered the fried chicken baker (pictured)and could only eat 1/4 of it. Everyone in my family was pleased and fully satisfied with their menu choice. This is a must if you're in the area!

I had an early appointment at UAB for fasting blood work, meaning no food or drink for 12 hours, and I live slightly more than an hour away from Birmingham, without morning traffic! We arrived at the hospital, and got the labs out of the way, and then looked for someplace to have breakfast before my Noon doctor's appointment. A... More

My college roommate is from Birmingham. She constantly told me about Al's and their famous potatoes. One weekend, we decided to go to Birmingham just to get away from all the hassles of being full time college students. By the time we got there, we felt like we were dying slowly of famine. We went into Al's and she ordered... More

Food is always great and consistent. This visit was my first time getting the Gyro and I was very pleased. The bakers a great (especially the fried chicken with ranch instead of BBQ sauce). The chicken fingers are AMAZING! Overall, great food option day or night. They're a 24/7 restaurant! Even holidays

Al's never ceases to please. I personally love the gyros and gyro plates but my brother always gets the potato the size of a newborn and finds a way to eat most if not all. The place isn't pretty but the food dang sure makes up for it.

This is the casual late night eats for all UAB students, don't miss out! It's a right of passage. Everything's great, but don't expect a pretty atmosphere, it's all about the food.
