What’s Cooking?

Grab your forks and come hungry. North Alabama boasts an eclectic array of delicious cuisines that will please even the toughest palates. From fine dining to country cooking, the world is truly your oyster. And yes, we do have delicious oysters as well as fresh seafood that will have you smacking your lips and begging for seconds.

The conversation doesn’t start and end with barbecue. But to be honest, that’s where we’d like to begin. Is there anything better than good ‘cue? Not likely. Check out one of the stops on the North Alabama Barbecue Trail. Stop in at World Grand Champion Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Que in Decatur and try the white sauce or head to Cullman to Johnny's BBQ for their pork nachos. Don’t miss the Stuffed Pork Potato at Lawlers Barbecue in Athens or the made-from-scratch pies and smoked turkey at New Market Bar-B-Que. Oh, and don’t forget, the hushpuppies at Greenbrier Restaurant.

In addition to the best in barbecue, North Alabama also features great dining options that true foodies will find both quirky and fun. The Wildflower Café is in a shabby chic restored 1887 house set in the picturesque town of Mentone. They offer great signature entrees that are both healthy and organic. Not your atmosphere? Check out the Rattle Snake Saloon in Tuscumbia. Where else can you ride in the back of a pickup truck to eat in a saloon built into a cave? They have great hamburgers and weekly entertainment to boot.

We’d certainly be remiss not to mention our delicious steaks and chicken dishes like the ones you can get at Bama Buck's in Boaz or the Red Clay Table in Sheffield.

Phew! With all those options, you better be ready to eat when you visit North Alabama. Just remember to save room for delicious desserts at places like Main Street Café in Madison.

Barbecue? Check. The freshest seafood? Check. Meat and threes? Check. A full stomach? Checkmate. Narrow your search by cuisine, price, location, and more to find your perfect restaurant.
