Legendary Alexandria Restaurateur John Severson Has Inoperable Lung Cancer

Alexandria, VA - Friday, September 26, 2014 - John Severson, a life-long Alexandrian, and owner of the now legendary Al's Steak House in Alexandria for the past forty-nine years, has been told by his team of doctors that he has inoperable stage four lung cancer, and that cancer has also spread to other parts of his body.
John was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on October 28, 1941, and is the son of an Army officer who moved John and his family to Alexandria soon after his birth. John attended George Washington High School in Alexandria, and shortly after his graduation became a postal carrier for the United States Post Office, delivering mail in the Del Ray neighborhood of the city.  One of John's deliveries in Del Ray was to Al's Steak House, which opened in 1955, and . John fell in love with Al's and became a regular, so much so that the original owner, Al Martino, sold the restaurant to him in 1965, which has now made both local legends.
John will soon be undergoing a series of chemo treatments for his cancer, but still plans on 'manning the helm' at Al's as long as he can be behind the counter to greet his many customers and friends.
Al's Steak House is located in Del Ray at 1504 Mt Vernon Ave, Alexandria, VA 22301. Their website is

The phone number to reach John at Al's is (703) 836-9443.

About Al's Steak House: 
Back in 1932, Pat Oliveri was a vendor selling hot dogs in Philadelphia. Growing tired of peddling the same old wieners, Pat had an idea. Carefully grilling a tender beefsteak, surrounding it with select ingredients, and wrapping it in a special Italian roll, Pat had invented an instant classic. The Philly Cheese Steak was born.
Originally opened in 1956 by Al Martino, Al's Steak House has been a landmark in Alexandria, Virginia ever since. When John Severson took over in 1965, their loyal customer base had grown dramatically, and to this day, Al's is known to have the best Philly cheese steak in the area.
