Chili’s Grill and Bar

A great feature of this restaurant is that customers can purchase their products from grocery stores in the freezer section. The frozen food selections allow customers to bring Chili’s Grill and Bar specialties to their home. The restaurant’s dishes are bold, innovative, eye-catching, and palate-pleasing. Although their food available in local stores, customers can only get the full Chili’s experience by dining in the restaurant. There are more options in the restaurant and the taste is definitely better.

Dreamland Bar-B-Que

Baumhower’s Restaurant

Baumhower’s restaurant

Baumhower’s Restaurant was established by Bob Baumhauer, former Miami Dolphins nose tackle. He always had a passion for the hospitality industry and opened his first restaurant at the University of Alabama, which was the first restaurant in the area to serve buffalo chicken wings. Locals can find him assisting his staff in the kitchen, at the bar, or in the dining room. The restaurant serves fantastic food, offers great hospitality, and welcomes locals and visitors from all over the world. This is more than a place to dine, it is a place to relax and have fun.

Smokehouse BBQ

Smokehouse BBQ is a traditional barbecue joint offering the finest barbecue, draft and domestic beers, and great wine. Since 1987, the eatery has pit cooked with hickory wood to give the meat a fantastic flavor; diners can’t get enough of the smoked pork, chicken, and turkey. Inside the pit room at Smokehouse BBQ, the pit cooks are trained eight weeks before they are allowed to cook without supervision. This extensive training proves the establishment is committed to serving the best meals. Visitors are allowed inside the pit room upon request.
