  • I went to Prince Albert's Dinner because of the show "You gotta eat here". I made the 1 and half hour drive. To try the Famous WALLY Burger they featured on this show. Well I must say I was very VERY disappointed. It was nothing like what I saw on TV. the burger was half the size covered less than 3/4 of the bun it was thin and Dry very little bacon and just very underwhelming. I got the poutine as well. It was very poor attempt at poutine. Gravy seems as its from a pouch served on very little shredded cheese instead of chucks of cheese curds and some kind of homemade gravy. You can taste the lack of quality and lack of pride in preparation of their product. I strongly recommend you do not waste your money and go to this place. I felt that I had to write this because that place has gotten more business than it deserves because it was grossly misrepresented on that TV show and I had to say something.

  • Order: Wally Burger and Poutine

  • This London landmark is being tainted by rude, arrogant, hipster servers. I recently brought my three year-old for lunch. It was about 11:58 a.m. and our waiter wouldn't let us order lunch. He was a total d0uche bag and clearly didn't want us there. What a d0uche bag.

  • Order: Lunch. Waiter said "no, breakfast."

  • I could not believe the service at Prince Albert's Diner. The absolute first time I walked in there they were so incredibly rude to me' it bordered on racism. I noticed all the white diners were served immediately and when I asked a waiter to serve me he told me I was rude because I was on the phone. I was calling my boyfriend to inform him of where I was. The staff member came over to my table and informed that I was rude and proceeded to snatch my menu away from me and told me to get out. I have NEVER in my life experienced such unbelieveably rude service in the customer service industry. It was downright appalling!! I informed my boyfriend of what happened and he was shocked. At no time was I rude or inappropriate to staff as this happened just hours ago. I will never recommend Prince Albert's Diner to any colleagues or friends. I am completely disgusted with how rascist and bad their service was. You may or may not agree with my standpoint but I will definitely say that it was an unwelcoming experience in London, Ontario. . .I would have been better off visiting the Dominoes down the street! At least they are polite and kind to their potential consumers!

  • Order: Didn't get to order, had the waiter snatch the menu from me!

Last time I checked, yapping away or plucking madly at the keyboard on your phone in a public eating place where you are being waited on was considered very rude. They were responding to you my dear.

  • After a few beers this is a great refueling stop. Classy retro style booths and chairs make this diner feel like you stepped back into time. The open chicken is a bonus as it is a relief to be assured your food is made fresh and to order. We order the Chicken Salsa Burrito and Spicy Chicken Burrito -- both with fries -- and both excellent. Perfect spice level and piping hot. The services was a little ho-hum but I'm sure she had been worked off her feet the whole night. An easy menu request (no sour cream) was followed to the tee and the portions were just right. We will be back!

  • Order: spicy chicken burrito, chicken salsa burrito, fries

  • I can't understand the following this place has, sorry; must be an acquired taste. The decor is very retro and definitely cool. The location is fab being in the heart of Rihcmond Row. The washroom is nasty, even for a guy. They serve real milkshakes and they looked good. Their loaded perogies are good. I had the veggie burger and fries and it was ok at best. Go for the amosphere and nostalgia, I guess, but don't expect a memorable meal and you won't be disappointed.

  • Order: See above

  • Prince Al's is a favourite regular stop of mine. The menu is interesting, it has everything you would expect from a small dinner with some surprising twists.

    My personal favourite are the loaded perogies which are served with chili and bacon. Everything tastes fresh and well made.

    It is a small place and can feel a bit cramped when full but it is definitely worth it. They have a variety of great milkshakes and even have a liqour license. Which is surprising for a diner.

    Definitely a place you should check out

  • Order: Loaded Perogies

  • Great diner located right in the heart of the Richmond row, the decor, tables, chairs and booths are like stepping back into a 50's diner. When you walk in you take your seat (or order for take-out) and the "waiter" lol came right away to hand us the menus and take out drink orders. A couple mins later he returned and promptly took the food orders. The food was prepared to order fresh and delishious and came out very fast actually, all 3 meals came out at the same time and in no longer than 10 mins even though they were pretty busy, which they usually are whether you there at 2pm or 2am. But none the less the food tasted great and big portions as well. All in all great place to stop in for a quick bite after the bars or anytime of day while browsing beautiful downtown London. And great prices too, nothing is over $10.

  • Order: BBQ Swiss burger, Loaded peirogies
