Where to Eat in Birmingham?

Ask Birmingham

Currently, I'm trying to add a section for food trucks that don't have brick & mortar restaurants. If you know of any, please leave them in the comments! Otherwise, feel free to leave comments with your favorite restaurants anywhere in metro Birmingham. Particularly, recommend restaurants that you consider must-try's or that you would take someone from out of town to in order to show off Birmingham's food. Thanks for any contributions in advance!
