It's always nice to find a sub shop in the dc area that tastes authentic and has all the classic options. Pizza steak was great, huge sub with steak and sauce overfilling the bread. If it doesnt make a mess when you eat it, its not the real deal. I hate seeing other reviews complaining about the sandwich falling apart. They always get the order right and it comes out fast and stays hot. Keep it up!

See update below; Not bad, the steak sub didn't stay together, the meat fell through the bottom of the bread. As far as the taste, I liked it. The ice tea was awful, I think it was the water. Also tha he price seemed much too high but I didn't mind it so much because I liked the sub. UPDATE: I returned to give Al's a second chance and let me tell you I was pleasantly surprised. The bread was great which made my sub Awesome. I had fries this time and they were hot and delicious. I opted for a Root Beer to wash it all down and all was well. This was the way a meal was supposed to be. I'll be back for more!

About us

Originally opened in 1955 by Al Martino, Al's Steak House has been a landmark in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia. When John Severson took over in 1965, the loyal customer base had grown dramatically. Al's became known as the 'go-to' place to get the best Philly cheese steak sub in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area. 

Sadly, John passed away on August 15th, 2015 after a yearlong battle with lung cancer. The business was closed for seven months until the Breeding Family decided to re-open with the help of John's son, Bo. 

After two months of renovations the steak house re-opened on July 6th, 2016. Just five hours after opening the doors, a customer noticed smoke coming from one of the light fixtures. The restaurant was evacuated immediately and the Alexandria Fire Department was called. Fortunately, no one was hurt during the incident but the restaurant was closed once again. 

With the help and the support of the Del Ray community, we planned to rebuild. Two weeks after the fire, Holy Cow hosted a fundraiser that brought in over $20,000! In the fall we were able to feed those who were missing Al's the most at Art on the Avenue, an annual festival of the Del Ray community. We appreciate everyone's patience and continued support during the year-long process. The Breeding family is happy to say that as of August 2nd, Al's is open for good!
