What hasn't been said about this local favorite. The fries are simply out of this world. Everyone has got to go here if you love fries.

Al's French Frys can always be depended upon for a good meal at an affordable price. The service is speedy and friendly and the atmosphere great - if you like music from the 50's and 60's.

This place has been around so long because it is a classic. Best fries in town, quick friendly service. If you're visiting and want an inexpensive lunch, don't miss it!

We love Al's french fries and burgers! Just a fun burger joint to come to with quick service and yummy food! I was on a no carb diet ( imagine that at a place like this!)- I was able to get bun- less burgers and a salad with no problem!

Local hamburger joint has a bit more fun atmosphere than national chains, offers better quality hamburgers and the like, with similar low prices. Best reason to go: In summer, they have the adjoining creemie soft-serve stand so you can get a summer ice cream along with your dinner.

These are the BEST french fries under the sun. There should be a 12 step program for Al's French Fry addicts. They are made from fresh and perfectly hand cut potatoes. They also sell brown gravy which is ideal for dipping. The fries are definitely the star, but the hot dogs, burgers and root beer floats are yummy as well.... More
