Sorry I only eat the burgers here. But these burgers are better quality burgers than you will get in any other restaurant in the country. The meat, cooking and preparation of the burger can not be beat by any other restaurant. Many other restaurants build complicated burgers with interesting toppings which make delicious meals but the underlying burger is not... More

Good food, moderate pricing and attentive service. Located on Roosevelt Road in Glen Ellyn, IL next to McDonald's, plenty of parking, usually offers 2-3 specials. Hamburgers are 1/2 pound and come with fries,baked potatoes or rings. Also offers fish fry on Wednesday's and Friday's all you can eat. Served with fries or baked potatoes and coleslaw. Family environment.

We have been Alfie's customers since they were at Roosevelt and Park boulevard (1960's). Even now, though we live out of state, we still go there when we're in the area for the world's best burgers and service. Thousands of restaurants haveTHE WORLDS BEST, but Alfies actually does!

I really had high expectations and it was just ok. We walked in and there was a guy behind the host guest, and I said hello to him and he complete ignored me. The hostess was sitting across from him and she stood up and greeted us...and sat us. She was nice. We sat down and the server came by...didn't... More

We come here twice a month it's always great. The service is fast and I never had a bad meal here. Now the decor will never get awards but you can get a great burger with tons of fries, great fried fish dinner, potatoes skins just like you recall from the 80's. Their grilled chicken Greek salad is so huge... More

We used to come to Alfie's long time ago when it still was at the old location further East all the time - it was extremely reasonably priced then and our kids loved it and the Burgers were the best. We tried it a few times recently and no longer find the food very good and the prices no longer... More

Most people go for the burgers. I love the salmon steak. Last time a had a stuffed avocado salad that was amazing!

This restaurant could use some updating or a really good cleaning. Food is good and within our budget. I do not like the wood tables and chairs because they are not cleaned well. Beer is warm quit often so ask for a frosted mug.

My date suggested Alfie's and I was happy. Pleasant, old school wait staff. Menu is a bit too deep fried and grilled. Not for someone who wants just salads or gluten free or vegan or snooty beer snobs. Just good comfort food.
