Stopped in here during a weekend getaway. The Italian beef was good, but stick to what their known for. The chicken sandwich was very dry and plain.

I bought a Nancy's Groupon in advance of being in town. I thought this was a regular restaurant, with seated table service and a bar. Groupon only mentions Nancy's, but they also sell AL's beef sandwiches. Not that I could use my Groupon to buy anything on al's menu. This is a carry out, drive thru and delivery business. You...

After checking into the Marriott across the street we went here to grab a bite to eat. The special listed was slice of pizza yet when I ordered the pizza was told it was not available until 5pm. Would suggest to have specials that are available. Hubby had the Italian Beef which was good with fries. The fries are thinner... More

Coming in from the traffic mess, we were just looking for something fast to eat. No use to the area, we came upon this place. We were quite impressed. The girls waiting on us were excellent and very helpful. Pizza was fantastic. We know that we will be back.

This place always delivers great food, and has a lot more than beef and pizza on their menu. They have a surprisingly good choice of salads (half size is plenty for me). Of course they also have the obligatory burgers and hot dogs. They have done a decent job of replicating the original Al's Italian Beef on Taylor in taste... More

I don't understand how this place isn't top 10 in Park Ridge. Their food is delicious and their staff is fantastic! I've always gone through the drive through and received my food very quickly. I was actually surprised because the lady working the drive through was very easy to understand (clearest I've ever heard through a drive through). Our order... More

Accidently fat fingered the rating. Wanted to give 2 stars. Used a Groupon. Was expecting a regular restaurant not a greasy, dirty take out place with cheap plastic plates and silverware. Had to wipe off our table and chairs and couldn't fit any of our garbage in the overflowing receptacle. Cesar Salad was a small plastic bowl with brown lettuce... More

We visited this restaurant several times, ordering both the pizza and beef. The pizza is priced reasonably especially the 2 for 1 medium pizza deal they usually advertise.

Went to Als because we heard they had good food & all 3 people in our group were totally unhappy ! Sandwiches barely warm & no way char-broiled within hours of being served out of a juice & not even hot enough to melt the cheese. Fries very poorly cooked & soggy & also barely warm. We contacted the management... More

Pizza is unbelievable. We are on our way to trying them all! Trip alone is worth it for the pizza. Al's beef is also good-their fries are the best. Nice location, simple, but they are fast.
