It was very overwhelming as new patrons, but once we figured out how to order it was a very good experience. Good food and fun atmosphere. Love the 50s vibe. Prices are very reasonable. We would go on a regular basis if we lived closer....More

Al's French Frys can always be depended upon for a good meal at an affordable price. The service is speedy and friendly and the atmosphere great - if you like music from the 50's and 60's.
