I took my son here last night. We wanted to check it out because it always looks so packed. Maybe they have a great breakfast and thats why but we won't be finding out because it was so dirty. My son liked his burger ok buy my food was terrible. The meatloaf I'm pretty sure is cheap beef with canned spaghetti sauce poured over it. The mashed potatos were ok but the gravy had no flavor and I couldn't even eat the sqaush caserole...it tasted like they baked rotten squaush. We got our meals fast but the service was lacking. The waiter was aloof at best and I heard the table next to me ask for bread that per the menu comes with the meals and he acted like it was an issue...so I didn't even ask for any even though it was supposed to come with my dinner also. I just couldn't wait to get out of there. I should have left when my son opened his menu and the pages were stuck together. GROSS!

Saw their inspection history on line. This place is nasty. How were they operating when you were last there with your kids? How will they be operating in a few months? It really ticks me off that I ever ate here. - Mar 3, 2011: Score: 91, Grade: A - Feb 25, 2011: Score: 52, Grade: U (these are highlights, there were 19 other items) *heavy black grease dripping from all 4 hood vents. *ice machine with pink and black debris. *employee wiping his face and blowing nose with bottom his apron. *ice cream scoop in dirty standing water on the counter. *baby roaches crawling on the prep table with cold items (carrot raisin salad, cole slaw) - Nov 13, 2009: Score: 78, Grade: C - Sep 22, 2009: Score: 92, Grade: A - Sep 15, 2009: Score: 71, Grade: C

We walked in and were greeted by a roach crawling behind the "Please wait to be seated" sign.Place was almost empty but were seated at a dirty table.Food arrived with a 6" black hair.Ketchup bottle flip-up lid had black furry mold.Grandson ate 1/2 of raisin toast that had green mold on 2 sides.Manager was unconcerned by my comments.Should have run out the door as soon as I saw the roach!Wonder what the kitchen looks like???

I have been eating at alpha soda for years. They food and service is always good. I like the outdoor patio area that they built a few years ago for relaxing and eating during the spring.

My wife and I used to enjoy dining there. Several months ago we went and had to wait fifteen minutes for a seat when the restaurant was only 2/3 full. We got up and left after having sat there for 15 more minutes without having been attended to. Thinking this was just a fluke perhaps, we went again a few weeks later - just to enjoy the same treatment. We've learned our lesson and will not return.

I love going to this restaurant for the price. I think the portions are great, the quality great but the service has always been a bit lacking. Usually because they are so busy!

I heard lot of nice things about Alpha Soda, but I was not impressed. I mean from 10 being best, I would give it a 5 at most. I went for dinner here & the food wasn't great, price was too high for the value, & service was mediocre. but looking at the comments from others, it looks like they have the best breakfast. Unfortunately, I am not a morning person & I will never be able to make it for their breakfast :)

I love their breakfast menu. It has a great variety of items and the portions are large. They offer a great value for the money. My favorite is the Chef's Creation that is a layer of home fries and corned beef hash, topped with three eggs over cheddar cheese covered with hollandaise sauce.
