I went to Al's for an early lunch, the line was short at 11:10 AM, the service fast and the food always delicious. Lunch is a standard for me, a pepper steak with raw onion and ketchup, a cup of fries and a Vanilla Shake....More

Great alternative to the usual fast food joints, Al's French Fry's is a must visit destination that will take you back to your parents and grandparents' burger joint! Includes outdoor accessible creamee stand/ice cream scoop windows and a playground out back for the littles. Don't...More

We were traveling to Montreal from Boston with another couple and decided to stop after reading its favorable reviews. Very cute inside and out, like a 50's diner. The food was horrible. The philly cheese steak was a joke. It was served on what looked...More
