Al’s Steak House

Al's Steak House

I should write an Alexandria restaurant guide because I love eating out, and I love sharing the best and most interesting places on Alexandria Daily Photo. Haven’t eaten here yet, but Al’s Steak House on Mt. Vernon Avenue has been a Del Ray landmark since 1956. Their specialty is Philly cheesesteak sandwiches.

I wonder if that telephone gets used any more.

Update: Al died in August 2015, and Al’s Steak House closed shortly thereafter.

    I have misplaced my cel on occasion, and been thrilled to find a payphone. They are not nearly as prevelant as they once were!

    Al’s Steak House can’t be beat. John the owner is a dear old friend of mine and he only makes and sells the best.

    I grew up on Luray Ave in Alexandria in the early 1970’s to 80’s (when Fernado Rodriquez worked there). Al’s was my favorite place to eat. To this day, I haven’t had a better steak and cheese. The Roman rocks!!

    I had my first steak and cheese in the 1950’s when Al owned it. I was glad Johnny kept the food the same high quality and taste. Now when the urge hits me, I think of one for days or weeks until I can get to Alexandria and back to Del Rey for another one! I hope it never ends. George
