Had the one third burger which was freshly cooked. The onion rings were some of the best I have ever tasted with the right mix of batter and onion. The strawberry milkshake was very fruity and quite thick. Good value.

So thrilled to have found a good small burger option. It's just like the big cheeseburger except smaller so I can eat the whole thing without feeling too stuffed. Good spot.

Al's burgers are very good, simple, old-school fare. Kind of the antithesis of Elevation 66 down the street, but each have their place.

Looking for a fast meal that isn't made entirely of ground corn, fillers and chemicals? Look no further! My family swears by the burgers or cheeseburgers that you can see being cooked on the grill right in front of you. My favorite is the chicken...More
