Featured on NBC’s Steve Harvey Show and Chicago’s Best, Al’s Char House is known for its huge portions. The menu features the 56 oz. Char-House Sirloin and a 48 oz. porterhouse, both served with homemade sides.
If Wyatt Earp suddenly found himself in modern-day La Grange, Illinois, he'd likely feel right at home at Al's Char-House. The well-known, Wild-West themed steakhouse that has been open for more than 20 years presents diners with all the comforts of a home on the range, starting with the wood-trimmed dining room, where walls display cowboy memorabilia ranging from old photographs to cattle skulls. The menu takes inspiration from the old west too, featuring steaks that can range in size from 8 to 56 ounces. Of course, if steaming, lightly charred slabs of filet mignon, bone-in ribeye, and charhouse sirloin don't make your mouth water, Al's also specializes in seafood such as grilled and bourbon-glazed Atlantic salmon, or shrimp served char-grilled with garlic or battered and deep-fried. They also have an extensive wine and craft beer list. The recent floor-to-ceiling remodeled restaurant boasts plenty of modern amenities as well—a large projection TV screens live sporting events near the bar and the crackling fireplace.
