Enjoy Mountainside Meals

Because the cookbook is also a mom-and-pop travel guide, it highlights four Alabama regions: Mountain, Metropolitan, River, and Gulf Coast. On a trek through the Mountain region, you’ll encounter Wildflower Café & Country Store, a cabin-style, down home cooking restaurant serving a blend of American and international cuisine. Their delicious Wildflower Crêpes are sure to delight. You can also discover the Mountain region’s best when you step back in time with New Market BBQ. In addition to exceptional old-school, pit-smoked barbecue, you can sample the Old-Fashioned Peanut Butter Pie to please your sweet tooth. After your meal, take a mere 30-minute drive to Huntsville for a visit to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. Guests will learn about the history of the Space Shuttle program. Additionally, take part in space travel simulators, and even view one of the only three authentic Saturn V moon rockets in the world.

Experience the Metropolitan and River Regions’ Best Home Cooking Restaurants

A pass through the Metropolitan region would be wasted without a stop at Peach Park. This produce and ice cream business serves house-made sandwiches and the finest cobblers. Try your hand at their Peach Cobbler recipe. Pastry lovers shouldn’t miss a chance to visit Heaton Pecan Farm. It features a barn-style restaurant, full-service deli, and the Metropolitan region’s most delectable Pecan Pie. Also, kids and adults alike will delight in a day trip to the Birmingham Zoo. Visitors can watch sea lion training sessions, sit in on an Elephant Chat, and even come face-to-face with real African lions at the Predator Zone.

Hidden among the River region’s treasures is The Castle Café, combining a unique blend of old-world Germany with contemporary Southern hospitality. The savory German Potato Salad will leave you saying, “Noch eins, bitte!” (Another, please!). True to Southern tradition, Amazing Grace Café serves up old-style fare that recalls 1950s farm life. While there, tear into a platter of succulent Fried Ribs that will keep you coming back for more. Study the ins-and-outs of 19th century living when you visit the Old Alabama Town history museum in Montgomery. In fact, you can tour a restored village of homes and buildings that offer a glimpse into the day-to-day lives of Alabamians past.

Spend Some Time at the Beach

Finally, finish out your Alabama food tour the right way with a journey through the Gulf Coast region. Try a wonderful, home-cooked meal at Lighthouse Restaurant. Experience nautical decor and the tastiest Crawfish Étouffée in Alabama. Enjoy patio dining at Cosmo’s Restaurant & Bar, featuring everything from hand-cut steaks to local seafood. Wrap up your meal like an Orange Beach local with the Nutter Butter Banana Pudding recipe. After that, stop by the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park for a walkthrough of the 76-year-old battleship. You can also tour the aircraft pavilion and view the new Great War exhibit.
