LG Meatball

Tonight's dinner was Al's New York Cafe. I have been going to Al's for 20 pluss years. It never disapoints. My 2 favorite things are the large hot meatball sandwich and the Al's Square's. ( garlic, parmesan bread cut into squares.) The pizza is really good also, along with the hot Italian sausage sandwich. Tonight my fiancee got a Large carnivore pizza. (Pepperoni, sausage, ham, meatballs and bacon. It was delicious. Al's New York Cafe really piles on the topping they definitely aren't skimpy. I got a large hot meatball. It comes meatballs, yummy ooie gooie cheese, delicious marinara sause and chips. We also got Al's Square's to split. Yes, we have a bunch left over however perfect for a rainy weekend. I highly recommend Al's if you haven't been there before. Al's New York Cafe is located at 17th and Irvine Ave in with 7-11. Another thing Al's has that is delicious and is hard to find in California since its an East Coast thing is white pizza. Every time I go back to Philly to visit my relatives my Aunt gets a white pizza. It reminds me of Philly and my relatives.

LG Meatball

I love their meatball sandwhich! You can get a half or a whole - the whole is so worth it - it's only a bit more money and you can eat half now and the other half later - just heat it up in a toaster oven or microwave. I highly recommend it! Delicious!

Eggplant Parmesan

I just had one of the best eggplant parmesan meals in my life! I looked at 5-10 different menus on Uber eats before choosing this restaurant, which I had never ordered from. I could not believe how incredibly delicious it was. I took the lid off the container, and it looked exactly like the picture on the website. The delectable meat sauce and tender eggplant smothered with melted cheese tasted perfect. Thank you Al!!!!

12” Small Pizza

Some of the best pizza I've eaten! The crust is the perfect thickness, the sauce is flavorful, you use just the right amount of cheese and it's always cooked to perfection!

Large Calzone

Al's has the best calzone I've tried. I usually do the 'build your own' and it's always perfect. They are very generous with the size as well. Never had any issues with any orders and the service is always great!
