Nice little place in Locke, Ca. Fried chicken was really good. Nicely seasoned. Steak was ok. Plenty of tables..however it does get packed. Service is a bit slow, but very nice. A bar in the outer room.

Our friends took us to Al the Wop's because they wanted to show us where they had their first date! What a hoot this place is! It is an old time bar with a very fun, friendly bartender. I believe his name is Johnny. We had a few drinks at the bar. Johnny served my husband wax peppers and Jiff... More

Stopped in historic Locke to explore on a quiet Sunday afternoon. After looking in the museums and shops it was time for some refreshment and Al the Wops is THE place in town. I think the only place! This is a very traditional bar with a dining room inside. We passed on the food but sat up at the bar... More

A great steak sandwich and fries. Not low calorie but a great fun place to have lunch then walk around a historical Chinese town with lots of history. The peanut butter on toast is the best! Good outing close to Sacramento to see the Delta.

A real old fashioned, wooden floor type saloon with food. Fried steak and lost everything is fried. Old town bar that is friendly to all and can be crowded and loud! Not for the faint of heart. Belly up to the bar and don't trip over anyone.

Here is Al the Wop's, the great dive that it used to be. It is unpretentious and you should be the same. Regular folks having a good time serving you and they also expect the same. If you are a snot, don't expect them to be friendly. This is very good food, cheap! have the lunch for dinner and you... More

This is a place to visit and enjoy. Do not expect fancy cuisine, but do expect an unique experience and fun time. The food is good. I had the burger and fries. Enjoy the ambiance and clientele as well as the walk down an historic small town that seems to literally lean to the right.

Al the Wops is the place to visit! If you are in or around Locke, you must try this place out. As the other reviewer stated, you can take a real dollar bill, put a pin through it, then use a silver dollar they provide as a weight, and take your luck to sticking the pinned dollar bill in their...
