The best Steak&Cheese Subs anywhere. For those who want to be coddled and fawned over go elsewhere! (makes the wait shorter for me). Committed Staff keeping the LEGACY alive. Call ahead to avoid the wait-but if you must wait, you will not be disappointed! AL'S ROCKS!

The food is great I love eating there but lately they have been giving out a lot of bad customer service. Many of them are rude and ignorant. I have decided to not continue eating there at all.

Don't expect to get what you order when you get food from Al's Steak. The owners seems to like to make things his way and not the way the customer orders. The food is good but it better be what Al wants to make that day!!

Bow down to Al's! This hole in the wall serves what is arguably the area's best cheese steak, and if you didn't know where it was parked in Del Ray, North Alexandria, you'd pass right on by. Delicious and soul-comforting greasy, large (when a construction worker says the 'large' is big enough for two meals, believe it), and inexpensive. Al and staff are there, friendly, and willing to arrange things to taste. The decore is minimal, with a couple tables by the windows, so carryout is the way to go. It's recommended that you call your order in if the time is anywhere within two hours either side of noon it's that busy. And that good. Then there's that big jar of hot peppers on the counter all you care to tackle, and for free. They've also got other selections, so when you tire of the cheese steak yeah, right you can work your way down the menu.

Very good hole in the wall, not much for looks but a good sandwich. Lots of meat, cheese is good on the Roman. Roll is a bit bland but the fillings make up for it.

Great food, but few tables. Great cheesesteak, probably the best one I've ever had. Very clean and nice employees. A little un-inving on the exterior.

I just moved to Alexandria from PA and was directed to Al's. This is definitely a cut above your run-of-the-mill steak & hoagie place in Philly. The steak is tender and the bread isn't soggy, which are big positives. Ideally, the bread would be a little firmer on the outside and the cheese would be better distributed, and I usually prefer that the steak not be chopped up into lots of tiny pieces during cooking (usually -- but not always -- a sign that the meat is straight out of the freezer). But this is a solid cheesesteak.
