We were traveling to Montreal from Boston with another couple and decided to stop after reading its favorable reviews. Very cute inside and out, like a 50's diner. The food was horrible. The philly cheese steak was a joke. It was served on what looked...More

The restaurant and sign give you the throwback feel of an old diner/burger place which was nice. The burger and chicken sandwich were small. The fries were just okay. Overall, I was rather disappointed with the visit. I expected more based on its ranking.

Had dinner with friends on Sunday and found a long line upon entering. The line moved very quickly and we soon had our burgers & fries. The burgers were average but we all loved the fries.

Saturday night means that a parking place is harder to find than an unopened present on December 26! A local hang out judging by all the Vermont cars in the lot. We savored the soft ice cream cones outdoors to enjoy the lovely evening.

Love to go to Al's, you never know who'll you see there from ice cream moguls (yeah, you know who), bankers, lawyers, blue collar workers, seniors and kids of all ages. Al's workers seem to genuinely enjoy their jobs, many faces have been there for...More
