Stopped on our way home for some barbecue. A little way off the highway but worth the drive. I got the rib basket for $14.99. It came with Texas toast and a side. Could have fed two people in my opinion. Ribs fell of the...More

We stopped here on our way back from Colorado to Rosenberg for a quick bite to eat. The restaurant was clean, staff was friendly and the ribs were mouth watering, to die for! Definitely will stop here again.

At 10.99 for a half pound of sliced brisket Al's is more expensive than the world renowned Franklin's in Austin. Hard to see anyone in Big Spring standing in line for this near tasteless treat. Ribs were very good however. 33 bucks for a two...More

I can't imagine anyone that does not like Al's. It is, without any doubt, my favorite place to eat in Big Spring, TX. Country cooking (like I grew up on) at its finest. It is just a little more expensive, but worth every penny.

Al's offers the best BBQ in Texas. Their mouth watering brisket, ribs, sausage. Ham. Chicken, and even hamburgers are delicious. While Al's is a little pricey it's worth every penny. Don't pass thru Big Spring without trying Al's.

The grease from the barbeque sandwich soaks the bread! Had a wonderful time in the loo. Constipation is no longer a problem. Wait staff are below standards and unconcerned whether you stay or leave.
