I have been eating at Al's since I was a kid & I never switch from ordering the pizza burger -- I enjoy it too much to try anything else !

I didn't actually try the french fries, but we got ice cream from the window outside (soft serve and hard ice cream) and am so glad we did. it was delicious! There's a nice little area to sit outside with your ice cream, too.

The double hamburger was not even as good as a McDonald's burger. The fries are just so so and there is not much to recommend this place.

The burgers are very small. Fries are good but very greasy. And not cheap ... a meal for 4 is at least 35 USD.
