    Great fries and chicken strips! And add gravy! But pass on the grilled cheese. Literally 1 Slice of cheese on a hamburger bun.

    Double cheese burgers are yum! And the French fries rate. A lot of fun to eat in or take out (and seasonally there's an ice cream window too)

    This old-timey lunch counter has been serving some of New England’s best fries since the 1940s. Crispy on the outside and soft and potato-y on the inside, these are textbook French fries. Read more

    French fries are soft and somewhat greasy and salty, to die for. Large selection of other things as well.

    Very disappointed. Ordered pizza burger, came with American cheese and no pizza sause. It was basically a cheese burger with a different meat patty. Dual line and small waiting area gets crowded.

    Want lettuce and tomato on your burger? Remember to order at the register! Those aren't part of the free toppings.

    If you have a large appetite, it is probably a good idea for you to get two of whichever type of burger you decide on.

    Avoid Al's. People who think it's good are people who grew up with it, when choices were Bove's "Italian" spaghettios/Wonderbread on Tuesday and Al's floppy grease fries and 1/4 puck disks Fridays.

    Fantastic chili dogs. I could eat a ton of 'em. Sadly, the fries aren't what they used to be. Still, Al's is a VT landmark and it's an excellent spot for eats on a summer day.

    Don't let your eyes deceive you -- a pint of fries is more than enough for two people. Eat them with cheese & gravy!

    Cash only, but they've got an ATM. Don't forget your sides of cheese sauce & gravy, you'll find the vinegar at the table!

    Pizzaburger! It is a specially spiced burger patty that is quite delicious. Meat and cheese and your choice of toppings. Yum!

    Go to Al's and grab a pint of fries. Smother them with vinegar-then take a picture with Elijah Wood on the way out. *hint* You'll see him near the second register.
