Big Al's Burgers and Dogs
140 West Mountain Avenue, Fort Collins, CO
Big Al's has
taken what others were going to throw away and given it another
chance! At your visit, take a good look around you might just
recognize something. Perhaps their 1953 Sear’s cabinets, or
ceiling diffusers that have been transformed into new light
fixtures, and lumber repurposed into table tops, both from the
Steele’s Market Deconstruction.
Salvaged stair balusters and old fence boards
were given a new life as they wrap the check out counter and
columns. Old light fixtures from a Denver hotel add character to
the dining area. They are Keeping history alive one piece at a
Since Big Al is a one of a kind, hands on guy
they thought their food should be too….from their homemade veggie
burgers to their hand-cut fries.
To get the best hand cut fries in town they
start with a gourmet Kennebec potato. These fries are cooked to a
perfect crisp and then sprinkled with just the right amount of Big
Al’s Special Seasoning. The result is the perfect hand cut fry.
Their hot dogs are custom made just for Big
Al's right in Denver. Their one of a kind dogs, contain an all
natural snap casing.
Their wholesome burger patties are never
frozen. They top the perfect burger with Big Al’s “Saucy Sauce”,
the only sauce worthy of their burger worship!
Best veggie burger we've ever had! We
absolutely love this place. Hands down, the best veggie
patty you can get. They are fresh and homemade (not some frozen
patty), they crumble apart while you eat them and they are oh so
good! I get mine as a mushroom burger. (sautéed mushrooms, onions
and cheese) Mmmmmmmm!
The fries are also terrific! (Another important
factor for me) I personally like the plain ones, but they have
fancy parmesan truffle ones as well. We love their burgers,
and can't get over their 60/40 burger (60% beef, 40% BACON!!).
Prices are also the best in town for "gourmet burgers" - it's
about $8-10 for a burger, fries and a drink.
