Old school sort of drive-in. Menu is what you would expect, plus some surprises. Stopped for breakfast. Coffee was great bacon egg cheese was great service quick. Ate breakfast at a picnic table. Seriously what else can you ask for.

The food was very good, while the service people were friendly and fun to be around. The girls brought us our food in bikini's and on roller skates. I loved the foot-long as Debbie fed it to me on the deck. Good prices too!

Al's is a cash only establishment that's never been updated...and looks like its never been cleaned either. I kind of can't believe they've managed to stay open this long. It's dirty inside and out including the condiment stations, bottles and tables. When you go inside...More
