Al's Deli & Grill
Whether you're looking for a place to dine at lunch or a meal to satisfy a 3 a.m. craving on a Wednesday night, head to Al's Deli and Grill. Located near the UAB campus and medical centers, Al's serves American and Mediterranean food 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The portions are hearty and the service is quick. When the weather is warm, sit on the patio and enjoy the people-watching opportunities.
This place has great food low prices ...if ur feeling really hungry try one of those bakers...they will put u on ur back....okay atmospher....dont sit outside unless your a bird lover cause your liable to experienace some freak show scene from one of a alfred hitchcock movie.
Al's Deli rocks. The food is good and relatively inexpensive. I really like their hummus and their house dressing. I tried to get the secret to the dressing. They are always friendly and professional. The chicken kabobs special and mahi mahi special are a great value; the specials include rice, salad, and fruit slices.
I agree with many on their comments
As for my analysis, the place doesn't look clean, especially outside, fountain is non-functional, steel mesh seats not in tip-top shape, but the food is awesome! Price is very reasonable, It's a college joint! What do you expect! My first & only experience was July 17th around 9PM. I would visit again, I was given flashbacks of my college years....no worries, no responsibilities....ahhhh, then, I snapped out of it and realized I had to hurry my food and head to work.....sigh :(
BTW: Try the cheeseburger w/chili-cheese fries, its the shizzy.
Being that there are very few late night dining spots in Birmingham, Al's is a jewel. The food is good. The service is pretty fast. The indoor booths are kind of tight if you are a little larger than medium, but they have outdoor dining for good weather. It's also conveniently located on the southside at UAB. My friends and I have had great times there at late night. The meals are reasonable as well.
Al's is excellent! The atmosphere is nothing to look at but it's the food that attracts everyone to Al's. Their staples are fries, chicken wings, salads, and pita wrap sandwiches. Not only do they have sweet tea, they have mint sweet tea! Honestly, on a scale of 5 stars, I give Al's 5 and 2/3. The food is that good!
Oh, how can I forget the backed potatoes? The have the biggest stuffed backed potatoes I have ever seen.
