What a great meal! I had Al's big breakfast and the blueberry pancakes. The fried potatoes were cooked just perfect. Crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. The pancakes were some of the best I had ever had. The price is very affordable.

The food is great real home cooking with a family feel. Go eat and visit with Al and AJ. I will be going back soon with my family to enjoy the food and company of Al's family.
