Best burger I've had in a while. Flavorful meat and the fries were awesome. What struck me was the signs that read like "if you don't catch our screw up before you sit down, tough luck" I wish I could remember the language, but they just had lots of bossy little signs telling their customers what to do. Don't be... More

The Good: I had an onion mushroom burger which was pretty good. The Bad: Don't expect good customer service. When my husband and I entered, we were the only customers. The cashier did not greet us. Rude but not a huge issue, I thought. The kicker came when my order came and the extra BBQ sauce that I had already... More

Cool Al's is definitely off the beaten path, but worth trying. It's a counter service restaurant, but there's plenty of seating. There are traditional burger and hot dog options, but also several vegan ones, too. They even have vegan mayo, bacon and cheese. It's some place the whole group will leave feeling satisfied.

This place is a gem. My Aunt and I wanted to enjoy a healthy and delicious meal...so we decided to try Cool Al's. What a perfect choice. The decor is a funky retro vibe and the customer service is outstanding. The young man who assisted us with our selection was very knowledgeable of the menu and offered exceptional advice on...

In my opinion this is the best burger in the area. Not the best I have ever had but a good greasy "I want to lay on the couch and watch trashy TV" burger. The place itself has no atmosphere, I wouldn't recommend eating in. The service is not incredibly friendly, and they are slow to make. But the burger... More

All the burger patties are made from scratch the moment you order it. Sometimes the food takes awhile to get to the table but that is because they do not use frozen burger patties. Every time the food hits the table I am never disappointed. I would rate Cool Al's 6/5 easy!

Yesterday, I placed a call in to Uncool Al's. I had a taste for a spicy burger, but I had eaten their habanero burger before, so I knew it was too hot for me to really enjoy. I asked the person who answered the phone if they offered a burger that was not quite as hot. She told me that... More

Delicious slow-food burgers. Freshly made to order every time (you have to wait for a bit), and tasty eggplant fries - my favorite!

While traveling with the U of West Alabama Softball team we decided to stop in for dinner. We travel with 25-30 people and finding place to eat is often challenging. Cool Al's was up to the task. The burgers were all hand patted and delicious. It's not fast food according to the signage inside so be prepared to wait 20... More

First off if your looking for a fast food place then don't bother coming here. I wanted a good burger and I stumbled upon this place. Don't let the outside fool you. I got the 15oz mushroom, onion,and bacon cheeseburger. The onions and mushrooms were cooked inside the meat. The 15oz was HUGE!! I could only eat half. My Mom... More
