I rarely eat a hamburger of fries but yesterday was an exception. A really good bacon cheeseburger and fries (that are cooked in beef tow I suspect) at a very reasonable cost. The whole atmosphere is very 60s and all was clean and pleasant

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
