Cool Al’s didn’t get all those awards just because the location is convenient and the staff treats you like family. Folks, Cool Al’s is the real deal when it comes to burgers. Here are just a few of its awards the past couple of years:

And the list goes on.
One of my favorite things to do on a weekend when I’m home alone is to order the large Garden Burger with sauteed onions and mushrooms to go. I should mention that they will tell you that it will be ready in 20 minutes, but I’ve always had to wait when I showed up there 20 minutes later. Anyway, I take that monster veggie burger home and eat half of it while I watch some sporting event on the tube. I take the other half (except the bun) and refrigerate until suppertime when I crumble and mix it with a can of tomato sauce, and then simmer while the spaghetti is cooking. You know the rest of the story.
