We were looking for a casual place to eat before a concert at Blossom. Gasoline Alley fit the bill. It has a really fun decor. We elected a table on the deck out back and knew we would love this place even before we saw the menu. The deck is georgeous! Flowers, inviting tables, super friendly staff and exceptionally clean (even the bathrooms). The menu is extensive for such a small place. The guys in our group had blue plate specials and enjoyed their meals. My Italian Sub was really just a cold deli sandwich in a pita - a bit disappointing but still good. Perogies and latkes were just okay. Beer and wine selection was very good with some good craft beers we enjoyed. We will definitely go back!

Female manager, not sure of her name, was very rude. Will not be returning or referring others simply because of her.

Four of us stopped by here a week ago. We were all from out of town and wanted to try it from the ratings on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. The "fat boy" was awesome! They did not list one with a fried egg on it, but when asked, said that was not a problem! Was cooked to perfection and was very tasty!
The fries, to us, were very good. Arrived hot and crispy!
The "big daddy reuben" was delicious with lot's of corn beef!
"Italian Stallion" was very good with plenty of meat on the sandwich.
The "crab salad" sandwich was HUGE! So much crab it was overflowing the bread! It did not have too much mayo, and was very good!
We ALL agreed, though, that the water was HORRIBLE! Not sure where it comes from, but it would be worth it to use some cheap bottle water, it would be a great improvement.
We did not wait at all for a table. We were there about 1:00 on a Saturday afternoon. The place was very busy. Even with the business of the restaurant, the waitress was very prompt and we did not have to wait long for our food!
Very worth going.....

I lived in the Cleveland area for many years but I never appreciated this place until I moved away. Now that I'm a visitor, nothing seems better than a Gasoline Alley Fat Boy. How refreshing to have a really great burger that's not the product of a chain restaurant! Yes, the fries and onion rings are a tad too greasy, and for some reason the water here always has a bit of a metallic aftertaste. But the atmosphere is unique and the beer menu is extensive. That's all I need to leave happy.

We have eaten here several times. The portions are huge, the food is good, the wait staff is just awful.
They need to hire more carefully and train these kids. Had to ask several times for water. The people at the next table asked and waited 15 minutes for a coke. When seated, you are lucky if they even approach you for an order. Dirty bar towel hanging off her back pocket! No excuse!!! Clean it up. It's a great location in a very upscale neighborhood. In Desperate need of better management !
