Big Al’s has had consistently great hamburgers for years. They are big and tasty and a 1/2 pounder could be a meal for two. I like Big Al’s tater tots better than their fries but both are really good... especially with their yummy fry sauce!...More

This place looks cute and the service is friendly, but the food lags behind what one expects in Ashland nowadays. A 1950s diner decor is great, but not when the sandwiches are 1950s in quality.

Big Al's was immediately across the street from Abigail's B&B so we stopped for a quick bite before walking to the theater. Mostly hamburgers and tacos. Food was individually prepared and very good.

This is a cute little place. The service was friendly & helpful. We tried the Haystack burger & the Mexiburger with fries. Fries were excellent, crinkle cut & crisp. Burgers were okay. Yummy topping combos, but the patties were pre-made & fairly ordinary. We also...More
