Round ‘bout there

Thought this "Good Grub" thread might be something everyone could contribute to with suggestions, constructive comments and directions to places throughout Alabama and maybe adjoining states since many of us travel and enjoy good food.

It's open to whatever you'd like: BBQ, steaks, ethnic restaurants of all nationalities, holes in the wall, roadside stands, food trucks, bakeries, ice cream or whatever. Just give some good info about what to eat, maybe what you don't like, price range and helpful info on how to get there, if they're closed at a specific time or day, website, etc.

I'll start. Y'all chip in with good suggestions and comments.

Big Cove BBQ
153 Taylor Lane SE
Owens Cross Roads, AL

Big Cove BBQ is located behind the Mapco on U.S. 431 across from th' Walmarks and has been in business for several years with solid reviews. It's your typical small country BBQ joint.

I stopped by recently and got the large pork (pulled) sandwich, sweet tea and chips. The sandwich was the biggest helping of pork I've ever had on a sandwich, which was a nice surprise, and was very good. They do the smoking on-site and it was tender, moist and had good flavor.

The sweet tea was good without being "OMG, that's diabetic sugary" sweet. They also have plates, hot dogs, nachos, jambalya (sometimes) and a good menu.

Porky's Pride Barbecue in Fultondale.
If you want, you can pick out your own steak from a glass cooler, table full of seasonings, season it anyway you want, and a big grill for you to sip a cold one and cook your steak any way you want. Pretty fun.

On Hwy 14 between Tallasee and Notasulga is a little restaurant called Elmer's. Go in and order the 16 oz Ribeye. I'm also partial to the chicken livers as well.

McGuires Irish Pub. Pensacola.

Used to be a Catfish place at Dixie Landing in upper Tesaw. Fine Catfish. Where I learned to take a bite of catfish then a bite of white onion. Good stuff.

Life is a journey. Make sure and bring plenty of Beer.

My luck has been so bad lately, it could be raining pussies and I'd catch one with a dick broke off in it.

Newborns in Florence on 72. Best catfish you have ever eaten. If you go between 4 and 6 you will have to wait to be seated.. I think they may serve a chicken plate, but fish is what they are famous for.

My favorite place to eat is Hooks BBQ in Troy. Next door to the Wal Mart on 231. I always get the chopped pork plate (hot sauce) with potato salad, camp stew, white bread, sweet tea and a slice of some of the best pound cake I've ever ate. The rest of their stuff is good, but that is what I always get. Sometimes I get a quart of camp stew to go, delicious stuff.

If you're going through Arab around lunch get a large chicken sandwich from Midas Burger. The best chicken sandwich anywhere. Located beside Joe V Clayton Chevrolet.

Sisters in Troy. Located on US 231 south right outside of town. It's buffet style and the fried chicken and bread pudding is incredible. Not open on Saturdays

Moe's BBQ in Daphne. Get the smoked wings. Bayfront park drive.

Bravo Taco in Orange Beach. I know most folks while at the beach want seafood but when you want something different try this place. Homemade corn tortillas with seasoned steak and try all the salsas. It's on canal road.

Boiling pot in Mobile. Best fried oyster po boy sandwich ever. It's on Airport blvd. Get Josh to meet you there and have him pick up the check.

Felix's fish camp on the causeway in Mobile. Get the Shrimp and grits. Probably the best restaurant on the gulf coast IMO.

Panini Petes in Fairhope. The best Beignets outside of nawlins. Downtown Fairhope.

The Tin Top in Bon Secour. Oysters and they are fresh. Located on the Bon Secour hwy.

Streets in Bay Minette. Lunch is Buffet style with country vegetables. The peach cobbler is mighty fine. Located on US31


There's one in Headland on 431 that I can't think of the name and one in downtown Enterprise as well. Both of them were some fine eating. They are also country style cooking places.

Please try to provide some specifics other than "it's good!" if the joint has a few things that definitely are worth trying. Knowing beforehand about a few specifics can help.

Thanks.

Both my places are meat and veggies which of course are my favorite. Be sure to try fried green tomatoes at Nikis. Snapper throats at Bright Star
