Delta Blues Hot Tamales Birmingham Review

Birmingham has becoming a mecca for foodies, but Delta Blues Hot Tamales Birmingham has remained a favorite.

Great Food

First of all, there’s no denying that the dishes they serve are absolutely delicious. One of the classics here is the Mississippi Melt. You have tamales with toppings of charred corn relish, Crossroads Queso, and simmering sauce.

Another bestseller is the smothered chicken which is smothered in queso and turnip greens, and the result is fantastic.

Masaman Thai Kitchen Review

Masaman Thai Kitchen Birmingham, AL Review

Masaman Thai Kitchen in Birmingham, AL isn’t the only restaurant in the city that serves authentic Thai food. But for a growing number of folks in Vestavia Hills and nearby areas, it has become the place for takeout Thai food.


Masaman Thai Kitchen only has a few tables so about 15 guests may be accommodated at a time. This is why most people order food to go.

Still, you can talk to the friendly husband and wife owners, and they can even give you tips on the best fish sauce to use for your own Thai dishes at home. 

Highlands Bar & Grill Review #2

Highlands Bar & Grill Review #2

If you live in Birmingham, you don’t really need to read a Highlands Bar & Grill Birmingham restaurant review. You know they’re fantastic. Even visitors know about the great food and service that this restaurant offers.

In fact, many residents in Alabama who live outside Birmingham tend to visit the city just to eat here. This is a truly iconic spot. It’s a mainstay in many Best Restaurant lists nationwide, and often it’s the only Alabama restaurant included in such lists.

Short History

The history of Highlands Bar & Grill began with Frank Stitts. He developed his culinary skills in France and California and then came back to his native Alabama as a 28-year old restaurateur in 1982. His focus on Southern cuisine began many decades before it became trendy throughout the country.

He was imaginative and was able to present Southern fare in more innovative ways. He used mushrooms and slivers of ham to pretty up his baked grits. He served red wine with red snapper and ham hock sauce. He offered flounder along with lady pea succotash.

Not surprisingly, the reputation of his restaurant grew, and now Frank Stitts owns 3 highly regarded restaurants in Birmingham. But the Highlands Bar & Grill remains the most famous.
