Had the 12"steak and eggs and it's amazing. Huge sub, some people might even resort to using utensils to eat it. There was a mix up with the online order. Online indicated they open at 10am but in actuality they open at 11am. Still, they were great and got my sub done for me before they opened. Definitely recommend their subs.

Ordered via Grubhub and it arrived fast and hot. Somehow the onion rings were still crispy and not even a little soggy (that’s probably the most impressive part for me) The $9 cheese pizza was actually way more substantial than I expected and the cheesesteak was stuffed with meat, I did hit a couple of pockets of really fatty meat/gristle which wasn’t great but it was still good.

OMG.. I should've taken pictures! Delicious and perfectly cut crinkle cut fries. Wrapped in paper to keep them fresh and crispy. I love that they didn't add salt. I'd rather salt my fries myself. Recommend trying the fries with white truffle ketchup. You'll thank me later 😉 The cheese steak was really fantastic. Not too greasy but packed with flavor. I did not like the peppers as they seemed to be pickled, but that's probably me not reading the menu. Easy to pick off the sandwich though. The sandwich was HUGE. It's probably about a 10" sub, but it was stuffed FULL! I had to put half in the fridge for later. I will be ordering from Al's again! And hopefully remember to post pictures..

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!
