    Anyone who was in line at 1:00 was served even though the sign said 'Closes At 1:00' The food was great, we had a couple of omlets and split an order of hashbrowns and blue berry pancakes (fantastic flavor in the pancake alone!)....great "floorshow" from the staff as well kept everyone entertained during the looong wait. It's a Must Stop destination!

    We got there early and lucked out. Our wait in line was very short and we were seated within 5 minutes. I had the whole grain blueberry
    pancakes (great) and my wife had a smoked cheddar omelet (very good). The place
    was fun and the wait staff was harried but good. I’ll definitely put this joint
    at the top of my list of Twin Cities DDD venues for a repeat visit. The DDD episode doesn’t quite capture how
    small a place Al’s is. Al’s makes the inside of the Apollo space capsule look roomy by
    comparison. Also, the place looks like an alley because it was built in an alleyway.

    If you blink, you'll miss it. Had to drive around the block twice, till we saw it. If you question if you plugged enough change into the meter, you have not. Make sure you put that extra quarter or two in it, because you'll be waiting in "line" to get a stool at the counter. How long? A LONG time. Why? The food is worth it. Also, the atmosphere is worth it. Not a place like it on earth. Truely, one-of-a-kind. The width of an alley, kinda with the look of one, too.

    Another stop on my May MN DDD Roadtrip. One of my favorites. We went at about 9am and stood in line for almost 2 hours, and was slightly raining too. Well worth the wait and 2nd shower. Loved the people walking by asking why in the world would people be lining up for this little place. And the response back from their friend was simple, "cause they have amazing food". I ordered the Jose and a side of pancakes. Wow. All was amazing. Loved the hashbrowns with the Jose, and I usually don't like hashbrowns at all. This place not only has amazing food, but the waiting in line makes it an experience all in itself. Anyone who regularly visits Minneapolis should at least go once.

    Tried this gem a couple weeks ago (10/23/10) on our way to a Gopher game.  Got there at 7:10 a.m. and the place was full so we waited in their queue, had fun watching the Al's traditions from the queue.  They move stools up or down the bar to make space for the next party in line.  Odd but fun to watch! Had the Jose, it was a bed of hashbrowns with salsa and 2 poached eggs on top.  Very good!  Not a morning person so not sure I will have a chance to return, but worth the trip!

    I've been going to Al's for 30 years since my college days - it's the most down-to-earth place you can imagine with a menu language all it's own.  My favs are whole wheat wally blues and The Spike on an oval with dark.

    The place only serves breakfast and closes by 11:00.  Nice area by the college and has other restaurants around it.  Parking here could be difficult.
