Have been here many times through the years and everything is always consistently good. Portions are generous, food is great. Staff always friendly. Anytime I cross the border I always prioritize having a meal here.

I cannot tell what old chain restaurant this was, but it still maintains that 60's-70's charm of old. Went there with a nine, which they easily and quickly accommodated without being crowded. The wait staff was friendly and cordial. Sadly, the staff do not wear...More

Service was fast and cheerful, prices are budget, and the spicy sausage in marinara sauce was good. Small selection of wine and beer only, but the wine is just $4 a glass. Open for dinner only Wednesday through Saturday.

Only had breakfast in this typical diner, but it was excellent with fantastic service. If you are visiting Blaine, WA or going between the U.S. and Canada stop by.

Very friendly staff, the food is diner food. Hot & plenty. Was originally a Denny's. Location is good for that quick meal.

This restaurant is in a old Denny's building so it is a little dated. The food is good and has large portions. I'm not sure I would go back. Too many other good choices.

We stopped here the other morning for a quick breakfast on our way to Seattle. The service was good and the food was quite good for the price. A good value and friendly staff, plus a neat little eclectic vibe :)

We were looking for somewhere close to Peace Arch State Park to have lunch. Big Al's is very near the park. You can see the sign to the park right outside. We stopped in for lunch. I had The Club sandwich (triple decker turkey, bacon)....More
