We just finished hiking at buckskin gulch and was on the way to St George. We saw Big Al's and there was a long line at their drive through. The inside is small with adequate seating and there's an outside seating space, too. The server...More

The sweet potato fries were great. Burgers ok. Grilled chicken salad was good. Shakes were good but not amazing. It was better than McDonalds.

After a long day at zion we stopped here due to reviews. It was along wait, but the burgers r cooked when ordered. The onion rings were good too. We sat outside because there wasn't anywhere to sit inside. We'd eat here again.

Our group of 8 split evenly between Al's and McDonalds and boy were the 4 who went to McD disappointed. The Buffalo burger at big Al's was the greatest! Everyone loved the special sauce. Some had beef burgers and fries. It is a pleasure to...More

We enjoyed our food - quite a bit, actually. Service-wise ... 1) I know people who ordered food similar to ours received theirs before we did 2) I know my wife's food came out long after mine and my daughter's 3) I suspect my sandwich...More

This place is just a bunch of kids jerking around. Watched my fries sit in the warning window for over ten minutes. Just asked for a refund and left. What a waste of 20 minutes. June 12, 3:15 pm

Very good burger. Very good grilled chicken sandwich. Small indoor eating area, but outdoor eating area also with about 4 picnic tables at which to sit. Good service. Friendly staff.

Big Al's was very slow so be prepared to wait. The burger was good, but the fries were great. Helpful staff.

In a small town it's nice to see something other than a local McDonalds or Wendys or such. Big Al's was very busy today for lunch so that was a good sign. We decided to try the Big Red which is a burger with ham,...More

We learned about Big Al's when we asked two locals where they went to eat. They were kind of reluctant to tell us, kind of glanced at each other and then gave up the name. We went at 1:30 on a Friday, and there was always a line to order the entire 45 minutes we were there. The limited menu is cooked to order, so there is about a ten minute wait for your food. This place is a hidden gem and we seemed to be the only non locals there. My green chili burrito was delicious, the sweet potato fries flavorful and others in our party were equally happy with their selections. Big Al's is located right next to a MacDonalds, and sure was doing more business.I almost hate to add it to the listing because Kanab is a tourist town, and this seems to be the local go to place that does a good business without advertising in any of the tourist publications.
