“Best Burger in town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2012 via mobile

Big Al's is a locals institution here in Ashland. You all have one in your home town and Al's is for us, I would want someone to tell me about it if I was from out of town. Arturo the owner and his wife always make everyone feel welcome. The home made fry sauce is just the right blend of magic ingredients to make your crispy fries a must have with your mountain burger of choice. Sometimes you just want a place to go with the kids where you can really relax. Big Al's is that place. Don't forget to grab a shake on the way out to go back to the park, it's the best shake in town too with many unexpected flavor choices, all of them yummy. Enjoy!

“Best Mexican Food at a Burger Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2012

went to eat at Big Al's for a great burger. That's what all the reviews said.
Big Al was behind the counter and what a wonderful happy soul he is...
after reviewing the menu, i had a chili relleno and my husband had the mexican steak. Haven't had a chili relleno that good since my mom's..The steak was very tasty.. The Salsa was some of the best i have eaten..
will have to go back for the burger and shake...or maybe another chili relleno..

Pretty good for the value. Better than fast food and krinkle fries are great. Good sized meals. Have a Tums on hand for later.

“Excellent burgers and fries!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2012

My husband and I love to come here and stuff ourselves with heavy burgers and fries once in a while. ( we don't eat read meat much and never go to big name fast food places) Very reasonable price and it is delicious! We love their milk shake. According to my husband, one of the best milk shake in town. You have to try it! I love their home made sauce for fries and it is definitely one of the oldest restaurant in Ashland! Thank you for being there!
