Go for the quality of the product. This is very rich and creamy soft serve, better than even the name brand chains (even the big one!). It is hard to imagine crave-able soft serve, but this is close. The prices are incredibly reasonable for generous portions. Outside seating is available in the shade. Don't be fooled by the building--they are... More

Been going to Al's for a couple of years now, always huge portions for not much $$. Smooth & creamy ice cream, good selection of toppings, lots of flavors for milk shakes and sundae's. Easy parking and an always friendly staff! (Take your dog for a free ice cream treat!)

Best soft serve in Western PA. Friendly, courteous staff and owner. You get a very generous cone at a very reasonable price too.

This is without a doubt the best, the very best ice cream establishment anywhere! Be careful regarding the size of cone you order as a small is more than enough Another highlight is they have different "Dole" ice creams on various days, all of them are fantastic. The place gets very busy as it is just the best anywhere. You... More

Al's Cone zone is a small but very popular local ice cream pIace. His prices are low and his servings are very generous. You can stop and visit with friends, who are always there getting their ice cream. Opening for 2016 this Sunday,March 20th

Although the address is Clairton, it's very close to West Mifflin; just a few minutes from CCAC-South on Rt. 885. As others have noted, the portions are very generous and the prices are extremely reasonable. Their small is a medium everywhere else and your eyes will pop out when you see their large. As Al's is right beside a closed... More

Every year we wait for Al's to open and it is just a fantastic indulgence! The portion sizes are amazingly large and the value is fantastic! You can create just about any combination of their tornados, just ask, and when fall approaches pumpkin flavor ice cream is amazing! We ensure to take our black lab with us so he can... More
