Big Al’s specializes in serving authentic Philly cheesesteaks
Big Al’s features a nice selection of hot and cold sandwiches,
including authentic Philly cheesesteaks, turkey hoagies,
deep-fried hot dogs and rib-eye sliders. Milkshakes made
with Häagen-Dazs ice cream and cheese fries also are on the menu.
The eatery is brightly colored and cozy, with Philadelphia sports
trivia and memorabilia decorating the walls.
OUR FAVORITE FOOD/PRICE
We enjoyed our sandwiches, so it was tough to pick a favorite.
My husband went with a Philly cheese-steak ($8.45 for a 9-inch)
with onions and peppers, while I chose a Chicken Philly ($8.75)
with grilled chicken, provolone cheese and peppers. We shared a
side order of fries ($2.75). Our kids went with a kid Philly ($4.49)
and chicken nuggets ($4.49).
REASON TO GO
Excellent cheesesteaks and sandwiches, and customers can watch
a ballgame or two while dining
Diners order at the counter, so there is no table service. Our food,
though, was prepared quickly and brought to the table.
Hardly any. We arrived early on a Friday night, and there were
few customers in the eatery.
Definitely. Kids’ options include chicken nuggets, turkey
sandwiches and cheesesteaks. All meals are served with fries and a drink.
