Though it's been recently renovated under the new ownership of a local brother and sister team, the diner still retains all the vintage touches that made it so uniquely classic, including a huge neon sign, a projecting vestibule, and a stainless steel exterior. The nostalgia seeps into the menu, as well, making the old-school diner a popular spot for local folk, politicians on the campaign trail, and time-traveling greasers. Breakfast, which is available 24/7, includes staples such as french toast and steak and eggs, and lunch features the likes of meatball sandwiches and the Al Mac burger. At dinner, entrees such as gravy-smothered meatloaf.
Even while honoring the old days, the local owners of Al Mac's aren't afraid to embrace the future. They actively seek to reduce their carbon footprint, adopting eco-friendly practices such as composting, stocking recycled materials, and using all-natural cleaning agents.
