The kind of place you'd expect to see antique cars in the parking lot. Burgers are good. I've had better. They are a bit on the small side with too much bun but pretty tasty. Loved the onion rings! Yummy! Did not have one but dogs looked good with all kinds of toppings to choose. Ice cream too. The flower beds in the front are gorgeous!

Landed late at the airport, on the way to check in to my hotel and passed by this place, decided to pop in and try. Old fashioned dinner with the usual menu. Instead or burgers, which seemed to be ordered by everyone, I went with fried chicken, onion ring and a mocha shake. The batter was a bit too salty and greasy, okay onion ring, not home made. Shake is very nice. Many teens congregate here.

Took a flyer and stopped off with my wife for a quick burger. It was like stepping back in time to an old-school diner. Solid little burgers for a handful of change, and a surprising salad for a fry joint. Gotta stop for the experience.

Al's French Fries has been around forever - it's a South Burlington staple. Their fries are excellent - fresh peeled and cut every day and always fresh fried! No warming lamps necessary - food is make fast and fresh. Fries are cooked in dedicated fryers, so for anyone with a food sensitivity/allergy (other than the oil or potatoes), the fries are a safe bet. (Have family with celiac and they are grateful for this!)

Gourmet food it is not, but then again, that's not what we go there for! Tasty, hot and quality food is their mission. High school kids and teams flock there either pre-game or post, and Al's is staffed accordingly, so you're not waiting for your food for extended periods of time - even when it's crowded. The staff is always efficient and friendly - and know most of its regulars by name. 50's music plays in the background, and the black and white checkered floor and red booths and stools just add to the atmosphere! The Bissonnette family has owned it for decades and family members work there alongside many long-term employees. They treat their people right, and get their loyalty in return. They generously support local teams and other charitable causes throughout the year, and provide many high school students a great place to work.

Little kids love the playground, and the ice cream stand is the place to meet and greet your neighbors and friends during the summer. Wholesome, hometown place.
