Back in their hometown of Philadelphia, Big Al and his son, Adam, enjoyed authentic Philly Steak Sandwiches while watching the Phillies, Flyers, 76ers and Eagles play… Actually, they enjoyed them when they weren’t watching sports too… Naturally, when they arrived in Florida they went looking for that authentic Philly Steak Sandwich that they craved. Sadly, they couldn’t find anything that even came close to that juicy, tender steak sandwich that they loved from back home. Sure, lots of Florida restaurants claimed to have the real thing, but this father and son duo knew the difference.

With the idea of opening an authentic Philly Steak Sandwich shop, the two guys went back to Philadelphia and made arrangements to bring to Florida the finest rib-eye steaks and best steak rolls Philly had to offer. Once they put it all together, they knew they had a winner. And so Big Al’s Steaks was born – to share the authentic Philly Steak Sandwich experience with their Floridian Friends and Neighbors.

After much success, and many awards, Big Al and Adam decided to turn their authentic Philly Steak Sandwich shop concept into a Philadelphia Cheesesteak franchise. What differentiates a Big Al's Steaks franchise from other Cheesesteak franchises is the cleanliness of our stores, the real sliced ribeye steak (never chopped), and the real Philadelphia steak rolls which result in the only Authentic Philly Cheesesteak outside of Philadelphia, and the only Authentic Philly Cheesesteak Franchise anywhere.

I guess we all have a preference. This fine gentleman ordered a triple threat (cheese whiz, provolone, and american cheeses) with pickles and french fries on it. Who are we to judge?

So yes, that's obviously a pile of cheesesteaks. We had made 18 whiz wits as part of a catering order and it was too pretty to not take a picture. If you have a party or event think of us! We'll happily make a catering order completely to your specifications. Aside from our delicious sandwiches we have tuna salad, cole slaw and potato salad as well as hot sides. Everything hot gets wrapped in foil and put into a hot box and delivered fresh to you! Feel free to call us at 1-561-819-1888 we're here to help make your event a success! And to everyone just looking for some lunch, dinner, or a late night snack we keep long hours to serve the Delray and Palm Beach County community. Come see us!

We want to take a moment to wish Big Al himself a Happy Birthday!

We're on Uber Eats! We did a photo shoot for them to showcase some of our mouthwatering items and it went really well. You're looking at a ribeye burger with mozzarella cheese - a cheesesteak with cheese whiz, sauteed onions, cherry peppers and banana peppers - a fried buffalo chicken sandwich with ranch, lettuce and tomato - loaded fries with onions, mushrooms, green peppers, cheese whiz and jalapenos and an Italian hoagie with lettuce, tomato, oil and vinegar and provolone cheese. You can either come try this delicious food in person or go on Uber Eats.

Here at Big Al's we try to ensure that only the best ingredients go into our sandwiches. Start with fresh, high quality ingredients and the end result is a sandwich that is mouthwatering and delicious. That's why I'm here cutting some fresh veggies to start our day. Good in, good out.

This is a deep-fried buffalo chicken with melted provolone cheese, buffalo sauce, and blue cheese (ranch can be used instead upon request) - fully loaded with sauteed onions, mushrooms and peppers. It's not my way but that's the beauty of Big Al's - every single piece of food that leaves our window is made fresh and is 100% made to order based on your specifications. So come check us out.
