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 time.

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.
