Tried both the plain and the marble cheesecake. The marble was pretty good; the plain supreme! Super waitstaff; day-old bread is half-price. Cozy atmosphere with dark red walls and mosaic tabletops.
Favorite Dish: Dessert: Plain cheesecake, costs just under $3. Sandwich: Cream cheese and olive (they'll add turkey for a small fee).
Good chicken slouvaki, which was chunks of seasoned grilled chicken and ripe red tomotoes in a creamy, zesty cucumber sauce, all wrapped in pita bread. Can choose from about 10 breads, including focaccia. Also tried the muffaletta sandwich. It was good, but I'm very picky and I've honestly had the best muffaletta in my hometown (San Antonio). Fried pita bread chips accompany all sandwiches--yum--remind me of fried wonton strips. Don't bother with caramel crisp cake, which is alternating layers of pecan merangue and caramel cake. Top layer was delicious; bottom layer dry and crumbly.
Favorite Dish: Chicken slouvaki was my favorite of the two I tried, and the waiter said it was one of their most popular. The only flaw was the chicken was not as tender as I would've liked, but it was still well-seasoned. The best thing about the sandwich was the zesty cucumber sauce, which is refreshing in summer.
Features delicious steaks, seafood, bar-b-q, chicken, pork and much more.
Check out their menu on the website below. Good food and great prices!
Favorite Dish: I had the Pig in the Potato Patch for $6.99.
Baked potatoe is topped with butter, sour cream, cheddar cheese, scallions, real bacon, hickory smoked pork and bar-b-q sauce. First time I ever had anything like this and boy was it m-mm-m-m, GOOD! What did you ask? Is it on my diet?
We had lunch here after seeing the Designer's ShowHouse. It was a lovely lunch too! Tea Room or Victorian Tea Houses are very popular down south. Of course it a "ladies thing" right? I loved it and would love to go again.
Favorite Dish: I had the Veriety Salad Plate and it was delicious.
I was pleased with what I got (no regrets)!
Owned by a mellow, friendly South African man. First floor is cafe furnished with African-inspired chairs and tables. Vaulted ceiling and huge store-front windows give an airy, elegant feel. Second floor is a gallery featuring art by local talented high school students. The stars of the menu are the Kalahari Quiche and the chai (which comes in 4 flavors).
Favorite Dish: Kalahari Quiche, which comes with either mushrooms or sausage. I got mushroom and my friend got sausage. Accompanied by mediocre pasta salad, but the quiche is moist and amazing. My friend loves their chai. Wild berry smoothie was icy and not worth eating.
the veranda is a very good restaurant located near the 5 points section of downtown birmingham. they serve american dishes with a southern accent. on sundays they have a jazz brunch which is fun. the veranda is one of the better restaurants in birmingham.
I asked the lady at the desk at the Barber Motorsport Museum where a good place to eat would be, and she told us about a Golden Rule BBQ which she said was along the road toward Birmingham.
But Bob thought we would have to go back to Leeds. So we stopped at Old Smoky BBQ instead. .
Favorite Dish: They had two specials - a BBQ special and a CB special. I asked Bob what CB was and he said chipped beef, but it turned out to be a cheeseburger. Anyway that was what I had and Bob had a bbq sandwich.

the full moon bar-b-q is a birmingham area insititution. the full moon serves excellent chopped pork bar-b-q as well as chicken and ribs. the full moon is my favorite bar-b-q restaurant in birmingham. there are three full moon locations in the birmingham area, see their web site for directions.
the golden rule is another excellent bar-b-q restaurant in birmingham. the golden rule has ten locations in the birmingham area. the golden rule serves chopped pork bar-b-q, chicken, and ribs. my favorite bar-b-q restaurant in birmingham is the full moon but the golden rule is a very close second. if you like pork bar-b-q you will not be disappointed.

A chain of American restaurants, you will find in every important US state and/or city where you can taste some real good food at an acceptable price and good fresh quality.
Here you will find a special architecture and photographs of Birmingham on the wall
Atlanta - the state of Co-Cola.
Favorite Dish: Bar-BQ in Birmingham, this is where you will find it. Everything is made fresh, from the hand-cut fries ( not comparable with the french/belgian fries!!) to the homemade onion rings, the ribs, pork, beef /chicken and the salades having a typical sour but great flavour...
The restaurants are closing at 9 pm - a pitty for "Bourgondian diner lovers" like we are,
Paperrazzia from Belgium, members of a team, origin : Europe/Ghent - but is Ghent near Paris or Amsterdam? A geographic puzzle for most of the american people.
Favorite Italian to go
Generous family-sized Italian meals that make party planning easy
The Paperrazzia team had a great time here, among Honda colleguas all over the world.
Thanks Brad, Brenda, Cindy and Cedric and many others that we could take part of this splendid evening
