Famous Uncle Al’s Hot Dogs & Grille (Coconut Creek)
Famous Uncle Al’s Hot Dogs & Grille, 4861 Coconut Creek Parkway, Coconut Creek, Florida 33063 (954) 975-6226.
Famous Uncle Al’s is a “hot-dog, burger, french fries” joint located in Coconut Creek…This afternoon… I tried Famous Uncle Al’s 1/2 lb. cheeseburger ($6.45)–onion rings ($4.99)–french fries ($2.25)–hot dog ($2.50)…let’s just say, cute place, piss-poor location…OK onion rings, OK “grilled Sabrett” hot-dog, lousy french fries, horrendous cheeseburger.
Just so you know, Famous Uncle Al’s is a small chain which currently has 8-9 locations, with 3 of them in Florida. The Coconut Creek joint has been in business something like 2-months. The problem with this concept which features waiter-service is, that the food isn’t very good. Like I said before, the hot dog and onion rings were OK, but nothing great…while the french fries and cheeseburger were absolute disasters. The cheeseburger that I was served, was perfectly “formed” just like the stuff you buy frozen in Publix or Costco’s. The french fries had an oily after-taste, “like” when the oil in the fryer hasn’t been changed for some-time. It is absolutely beyond me, how Famous Uncle Al’s thinks that it can compete with guys like Five Guys who serve fresh-burgers and hand-cut french fries.
Anyway, I wish the owners well, but I won’t be back.
