Tasty Town 16 14th St S, Birmingham Greek • $$

“We're not huge fans of Greek food, but we tried Tasty Town, mainly for convenience. We had planned a very packed day of sight-seeing in Birmingham on a Saturday. It seemed that hardly any eatery would be open and there wasn't time allowance to drive out of the downtown area, without being late for the next activity. Thus, we settled on a mid-afternoon lunch/dinner at Tasty Town. Honestly, both of us thought it was better than we had anticipated and the service and location were top notch. Thanks, Tasty Town! Thanks for being there, and thanks for being so good.”

“The atmosphere was great, the dumplings appetizers were delicious. The main course was a disappointment to say the least. The whole fish was fried good, but no seasoning at all, the sides that come with it is a -0 for me. WHY, serve this beautiful whole fish with a huge wedge of RAW cabbage, plain big wedges of tomatoes, plain thick slices of cucumbers, cooked white plain rice, and a tomatoe chutney which was very tasty. The sides served with this $27 dish is not a compliment to the entrée at all. The dumplings saved the day!!”

McDonald's 4625 US-280, Birmingham Fast Food • $

“For McDonalds this is high praise, but I thought it was important to highlight the fact that this was a memorable experience. Immediately i was greeted upon entering by what i assume to be was the manager/asst manager. While ordering at the self-order station the same individual stayed nearby and asked if i needed assistance, and while i didnt they were attentive watching for drink orders and expediting tbose before hitting "submit order" which saved time. While, yes, this is fast food I was quite surprised at the timeliness from ordering to when I received my meal tableside given it was breakfast and there was a huge line in the drive thru. Aside from the food the restaurant offered a nice back area that was quieter and made for a nice area to do some work and collaboration with a coworker.Parking: There is ample parking. However, during busy service times it is a little hard to navigate into and out of some of the slots.”

I don’t feel bad for you.#2 yeah yeah yeah. Drive thru speed is what chick fil a is known for. But people when it’s football season on Saturdays and it’s 10:25 and you decide to pull your lazy just got out of bed self into a already packed drive thru “wanting breakfast “ knowing darn good and well they stop at 10:30. That’s on you homie.Don’t be mad when you finally pull up to an overworked overstimulated 15 year old and can’t get a chicken biscuit cause you didn’t get out of bed till 10:15 didn’t do anything to make yourself presentable looking like Joaquin Phoenix in the beginning of the joker self. Get a sandwich and get on with your life.And finally#3 yeah. I’ve had my ups and downs with chick fil a myself been a fan of this location for years. Love the employees. Russell is fantastic. Corey is an amazing individual. But if I have a bad experience I’m not gonna take it out on a google review. Stop blaming this location for things YOU! Should’ve payed closer attention too. NO! I don’t feel bad for you. Their motto is my pleasure. They want your day to be better BECAUSE you came to chick fil a Greystone. Me however.

Full Moon Bar-B-Que 525 25th St S, Birmingham Barbecue • $$

“We were looking for a food place that didn't serve hamburgers and wound up at Full Moon BBQ. Upon arriving, we told the cashier we were 1st time customers. We asked a few questions but ultimately went with the Smoked Turkey sandwich with Chow Chow and BBQ sauce and a side of Cole Slaw and a drink to complete the meal. The sandwich came out with 4 thick slices of turkey and a side of BBQ sauce that had a whisper of steam coming off of it. I truly loved the aura and atmosphere inside. Although there is only 25-30 seats in the restaurant, the photos that hung on the wall dated back decade's and were historical. Alot of pictures were dedicated to Alabama Football and Auburn coaches and athletes. I even found an autographed photo by Coach John Calipari of the 2012 Kentucky Men's NCAA Basketball Championship team. This restaurant establishment was totally awesome! The service was fantastic and fast! Highly recommended if you're ever in downtown Birmingham, stop by Full Moon BBQ!!! I'm absolutely sure you won't be disappointed.”

Staff was amazing and friendly! Bartenders were awesome too and it got extremely busy in there! I hope everyone else visiting tipped them well! We didn’t eat because we waited too long but others around us had food and it looked amazing. I will definitely go back next time I’m in BHAM.”

Hot and Hot Fish Club 2901 2nd Ave S # 110, Birmingham American • $$$$

“We’ve been eating at Hot and Hot for years. At the old location there was never a hiccup. Amuse bouche, wine recommendations, attentive servers, immaculate food, and realistic prices for such a wonderful restaurant.However now, it’s inconsistent. More often than not we’ve had subpar service for an establishment with this kind of reputation. Empty plates sitting too long, empty water glasses, inattentive wait staff. Salads are too salty and heavy in dressing, no more amuse bouche, soufflé was dry and no longer prepared table side. It’s just not a special place anymore. And the only consistently good thing is the entrees.Not to mention that while entree prices have remained steady, now bread service is $10, mediocre salads are $18, and desserts are also increased beyond their worth.”

Everyone at our table ordered something different, and not one had a complaint. Everything arrived in a timely manner and everyone's food was hot and delicious. I have a hard time deciding what I want, but in the end it's all about the pork chop. And, I'm not even a big pork eater, but Perry's is out of this world. It's enough for dinner, and lunch and dinner the next day. Thank you Perry's for another wonderful dining experience.”

“Pizza grace is by far one of the best pizzas I've had in Birmingham! The first time we came here, I thought the pizza was a bit too charred for my liking and made it taste slightly burnt but I've discovered you can ask for "light bake" which makes them come out perfect! I feel like they have different specialty pizzas every time I come here because I've definitely tried out so many different toppings and flavors! Service is very quick and the restaurant itself is very casual (I've walked in with scrubs before). It's located right next to a gelato place so you can top off your lunch/dinner with some delicious dessert! Will definitely be back!!”

“I happily recommend Cahaba Brewing to anyone looking for a great venue. I booked my event from a different state having never been there and I was surprised at how much space they gave us! We booked a graduation party for about 30 people and we catered it through the Current at Cahaba. We enjoyed a fresh and delicious taco bar with plenty of food for everyone. We had leftovers! They also provided us with a table for the cake we bought and ice for our nonalcoholic soft drinks. Our party was in a designated area of the taproom where we had plenty of room to enjoy a private celebration and also engage in the fun social setting of the bar scene.”

The Essential 2215 1st Ave N, Birmingham Bar • $$

“Guys yesterday I got the chance to try The Essential. Not going to lie I only came here because they made the list of 25 best burgers in Alabama so of course I hade to try it. However we had to get some other items to try. To start off the place was very nice and welcoming not a huge place either but not too small. A very nice bar, great place for friends and small family gatherings or even a nice date night. 8/10 I also really loved the open kitchen they had you could see the chefs working hard and getting the dishes out. Our waitress (forgot her name) was probably hands down one of the best waitresses I have ever had and even got some up sales out of me. Also got to meet who I think was either the manager or the owner not sure but he was very nice too. 10/10 on customer service. APPETIZER: BAKED MOZZARELLA (Lioni cheese, calabrian sauce, fontina). This was so freaking good its hard to explain but I'm going to do my best. It's baked mozzarella but eating it you'd definitely think it was fried but it was not. The sauce was so good its not marinara sauce kind of is but with a slight spicy kick. I absolutely devoured this thing. Probably my favorite dish of the whole night. 10/10 We also recieved free focaccia bread which is one of my favorite breads and it was so good. I was not a big fan of the ricotta cheese blend though it's just me I'm not a fan of ricotta cheese lol. But the bread itself was top notch. So fluffy and yet properly toasted and buttery. 8.5/10 Now for what I and all of you are waiting for: CHEESEBURGER (Bear Creek beef, big mac style, fries) This burger was so fresh and delicious don't let the picture fool you it was not very big but still very delicious. The Big Mac style sauce was good. The ingredients you could easily tell were very fresh but I feel like seasoning wasn't executed well and lacked salt and pepper. Fries were cut fresh very good and well seasoned. Do I think it deserves to be on the top 25 list? Yes but what they are charging for it I think it's a bit much for what you actually recieve. 8.9/10 Second entrée was: HALF CHICKEN PIRI PIRI (guajillo marinade, peanut-lime gremolata, fries) This was some flavorful juicy chicken Piri Piri definitely done right however correct me if I'm wrong but half chicken means half a chicken right because we only recieved a butterflied chicken breast. Maybe I'm missing something here and someone can help me understand. 9/10 Last but not least dessert: CARROT CAKE (swiss meringue buttercream, whipped cheesecake) The dessert menu wasn't very extravagant and very limited but I found out they own their own bakery so the cakes were made in house so we got the carrot it. It was very good and very moist however it had coconut all over it and I flat out don't like coconut it's a texture thing not a flavor thing. For the price you pay for it I definitely expected a bigger slice then what we recieved. But with that being said 8.5/10 Would I come back here? Yes! Do I recommend this place? Yes! However I think for what you're paying for some for the items I think the portions should be adjusted accordingly. Staff was spectacular food was great and I really enjoyed my time here.”
