Al’s is loud and proud, graffiti heaven for those who enjoy writing on walls and trains. Want a menu? Just read the big print on the walls. If you’ve lost valuable rims on your tires, chances are they could be decorating the walls. There is a definite garage feel to Al’s, located adjacent to Kennedy’s. Both have a sister restaurant on the Westside called Sedona. Al’s is geared to Generation X and there are some real hardbodies eating and consuming beverages around Happy Hour. Oh, yeah the burger. Sweet, very tasty, a double cheese that is just right. Fries are enormous in quantity. No way the average person will get through all of them. Plenty of refills on sodas. In all, a good feed. The price is a little high, but not bad. The only fault is noise. The music is blaring and not very good. Less noise, better tunes and a 5 is waiting.
