Their chicken is smoked then fried and is outstanding.

The Alabama Department of Tourism compiled a 100 places to eat in Alabama list a few years ago. The only place I could find a copy of it is linked in the blog below.

http://lbratina.blogspot.com/2008/05/100-places-to-eat-before-you-die-in.html?m=1

That list is a little old. One that wasn't on the list was The Little Donkey in Homewood. They consider themselves Mexican food but the time I went it reminded me of a farm to table type restaurant. Everything tastes fresh and nothing like it came from a can.

http://www.thelittledonkey.com

I am also a fan of the micro breweries popping up in this state. Cheaha Brewing Company in Anniston serves food and has good burgers. Avondale Brewing in the Ham doesn't serve food but it's right next door to Saw's BBQ and Post Office Pies, both of which are very good for BBQ and pizza respectively. Get your food to go and carry it into Avondale and enjoy I with a Battlefield IPA.

Goodsprings Catfish Haven is better all the way around, imo. Better fish, hush puppies and slaw.

Dot's on main drive in New Hope. Great hand patted burgers cooked on a flat top dripping with flavor. HB steaks with gravy and onions. Chicken fingers and the like. Small place, only seats about 15 but worth it. Shakes and cones as well. thumbup

There's a BBQ joint in East Brewton that I can't remember the name of. But damn fine eats. Josh claims they have the best baked beans he's ever had.

If you like burger joints and in Birmingham try MUGSHOTS BAR & GRILL! It's very good, not too expensive, and fun atmosphere! There's 2 in Birmingham both are great but i prefer the one in Vestavia.

Just ate at Tamara's in Fairhope. Dang good if you're looking for a notsocheap place to eat. Gotta get the Crab Green Tomatoes!! Excellent! Also had the grouper and it was real good.
Also, Firebirds in Hoover is the BEST food I've ever eaten. I haven't tried anything on the menu that I didn't like. Their steaks to me are the best I've had other than a good home cooked one.

Dixie Landing Cafe was the best for fried catfish. Fresh out of the river and into the grease. Thing of the past now. Building is about to be torn down soon.

Remember, please, if possible to include directions or somewhat of a location. I know we have smart phones and such, but some idea of location is a plus.

"Jimmy's in Montgomery" is kind of vague. "Jimmy's in Montgomery out on the Southern Bypass, where you need a .40 and to go in the daytime" is better. grin


GREAT suggestions! Always good to get solid tips on good grub. Keep 'em coming!

I agree, Catfish Haven in Russellville (US 43) is the best all around that I have found. Newberns (Florence, US 72) is good too, next up would be Friendship House (on the Tombigbee River, outside Aberdeen MS), forget the names but pretty good places in Butler Co and Monroeville(?). Been about 25 yrs, but there was a pretty good place in Gadsden on the river too.

FWIW, the wife and I used to drive 2.5 hrs each way to eat at Catfish Haven.......


There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.

Joe Pattis just outside downtown Pensacola always has the freshest reasonably priced seafood. Peg leg Petes on Pensacola beach has a great atmosphere and awesome seafood. FIRE at the casino in Atmore gets my vote for the best food and service in Alabama. A little pricey but well worth it IMO. Best steak by far I've ever had!

Callahan's in Destin just off Hwy 98. Wide selection of food from steaks to seafood. Reasonably priced. Best tuna dip and ribeye sandwich you can find. A lot of locals visit there and hardly a wait even during the summer months.

I really like Abercrombies Fish Camp in Clayton, AL. I'm not a big fish eater, but they have excellent ribeye for $19.99 and hot college age waitresses. I go there whenever I'm hunting with some of the fellows here on Aldeer.

In Clanton for lunch, meat and 3 try Main Street Cafe, on Main street.:) There vegetables are great.

For supper it's hard to beat Hickory Chip "out 145 from I-65 peach tower exit toward Wilsonville, maybe 2 miles" for food and service. I like the Buffalo Chip appetizers, Steaks are really good and they have a great catfish plate. They are a BBQ place but I aint crazy about the BBQ.

If you are ever in Chilton County ask for a "Whole" Hot Hamburger with cheese, gravy and onions where you stop, Dari Delite in Thorsby on 31 has the best. It is a local thing unless it finally got out. 2 open faced hamburger patties on bun's with melted cheese, sauteed onions and gravy poured over it with a side of fries. "Straycat Special". When I was in my younger partying days we would go to C.I. Porters truck stop and eat this about 2 in the morning with the local cops, where they got started. It's still great.
