Three of us stopped in on the way home on a recent Sunday morning. Brittany was our server. She provided very good service and was personable. The breakfast specials were excellent and the menu options looked very good. We'd go bad again.

Al's is an old-school diner, a throwback to yesteryear when the food was good, served by locals and people knew each other. A must visit.

We were looking for a real down-home breakfast and we got it. Rich fried to perfection eggs, delectable home fries, and succulent sausages. All topped up with excellent coffee. Pleasant service in a real small-town atmosphere. GReat!

Love the food, they offer something for everyone. I recommend the Turkey Club Melt, best sandwich on the menu. The deserts are all excellent. My favorite is the graham cracker pie.

We were on the road early in the morning and struck out on a couple other places that were closed. Al's opens at 5 am which worked out well. The menu is fairly basic, but covers the breakfast standards. We both ordered omelets, which were well prepared and full of ingredients. Prices were very reasonable and the omelets included coffee.... More

I did not get what I ordered the first time but the second time after returning the food they got it right I guess. I do not like speaking ill of any restaurant just merely stating a fact.

We came to Mars Hill for the first time last week and needed a place for breakfast. This diner was across the street so we tried it. We liked it and went back again the next morning. Very good service and good food. Will go again when we get in that area.
