A friend of mine came in town from Arkansas and googled dim sum. She came up with the standards in Mpls., but also found A and L Chinese in Inver Grove Heights. We went on a weekday and asked for the dim sum menu. They were super friendly and made things to order. We had shrimp balls, tofu skins, shrimp dumplings, beef noodle, pork dumplings, and shark skin dumplings from the dim sum menu and Chinese broccoli from the regular menu. Our waiter laughed with us about how much we ordered. Everything was fresh and delicious, and incredibly reasonable! Today we went back for their weekend dim sum with carts, etc. It was busy, though not packed and no line to get in. A number of Chinese families there for Easter. There were a number of things (pork buns, custard pies, pineapple rolls) that aren't available during the week. Loved the food again. They don't have a huge staff, so it took a while longer to have things arrive. Staff are friendly and welcoming, which I haven't always found with dim sum. I was again amazed at the quality for the price.
