Al's Deli and Grill
Located near the UAB campus and medical centers, Al's serves American and Mediterranean food in a casual atmosphere 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The service is fast, and the portions are large. Al's is a diner with long front windows and a patio with a fountain and gazebo. In nice weather the patio is a great place to eat and watch people come and go.
Al's is a GREAT place! It's open 24/7 and the staff is good to recognize regulars. While it lacks atmosphere on the inside, the courtyard is great on a nice day. Inside it's a typical "diner" but the restrooms are clean. There is usually a line, but it moves pretty quickly considering your order is made fresh. If you "eat in" they bring your food to you. I moved out of state about a year ago and I miss Al's! Anytime I'm in town I HAVE to make a pit stop - regardless of the time of day!
oh, man! you've never had worse food in your life, but you've never had more fun eating it! no, i'm just kidding... the food is okay... my favorite is the chicken gyro with seasoned french fries, but the grilled cheese sandwiches are great, and i swear to god their baked potatoes are the size of your head. the main reason people go to al's, though, is the atmosphere. show up at 3 am and the place will be packed... full of kids who just got out of the clubs and need some sobering-up food, doctors who just got off their shift at the hospital, cops who are on their "lunch" break, university students taking a break from an all-night study session, and everyone else in-between. the guys who work there are friendly, you can watch them cook your food, you can pick up a copy of Black and White magazine or Birmingham Weekly, AND if you have a student ID you get a free drink with purchase! can't beat that.
