Al's Frys were delicious. Also the burgers, hot dogs and grilled cheese with and without tomatoes were tasty. Lots of people have fun and good food in a burger joint out of "Happy Days"

We were amazed by how cheap the food was here. We were able to order two cheeseburgers (with extra toppings), two sodas, fries, and onion rings for about $15. The food all seemed very fresh and tasted great. The service was quick as well. We simply couldn't get over the affordability of this place.

What can you say about an icon in BTV? Always fast, always perfect. Their employees tend to stick around along time so they must treat staff well. It's always great seeing the same faces time after time. Plus the price is right.

Generations have been enjoying Al's classic burger-and-fry place. Cheap, clean, good food. Burgers are small but at less than two bucks each get two if you want to. The fries are great, but control yourself! Love the retro look. The place is always packed but turnaround is quick so you can find a seat.

Al's French Frys and I are the same age. In the fifties it was a treat to stop at Al's on the way home from the city. In college it was a treat to stop at Al's on the way back to campus. We recently stopped in to renew an old acquaintance and we were not disappointed! Although the restaurant... More

Classic burger joint. How does the McDonalds 200yds away even stay open? I have been visiting since 1987 and it never disappoints

Al's is FAMOUS! Great burgers and fries, and outstanding milk shakes to dip those fries in! Window service for frozen treats. It's busy most of the time, so some times service is a bit slow. Al's is likely where 5 Guys got their inspiration! ;)
