    Enjoyed the food and the craft beers.... until it became dark and the cockroaches started to come out and join us in the back patio. I won't go back after that.

    Tuesday and Thursday's are half price on local draft beers. Sit inside for old pub feel or grab a spot on the patio.

    I travel the country for a living and have been on the road for 9 months trying to find the best burger in the country. The Gus Burger add cheddar and bacon is the single best burger I have ever eaten

    This is a Birmingham institution. I suggest going to J. Clyde and then Blue Monkey afterwards for a late night cocktail. Avondale Miss Fancy for beer. Try a pizza for dinner. Delicious.

    This place has vegetarian options that are difficult to find in the south - they even had a vegetarian sausage sandwich option which was pretty good. Great atmosphere, friendly staff.

    One of the oldest bars in Birmingham. Walk down the quaint cobblestone road hidden by the overhanging oak branches, and look for the low brick building with an inviting patio out front.
