100 Dishes To Eat in Alabama Before You Die

Posted By on Mon, Apr 18, 2011 at 5:49 AM

The intriguing "100 Dishes To Eat in Alabama Before You Die" is a city-by-city listing of good eats along the state's highways, but more important, byways.

Interstate 65 through 'Bama cuts west toward Mobile just south of Montgomery. Great if you're headed to New Orleans or Mobile. Many Nashvillians vacation in the panhandle, though, meaning there's a lot of two-lane blacktop to cover between Montgomery and the state line. It's a nice enough drive.

Nashvillians also clock plenty of time driving to Huntsville, Tuscaloosa, Florence and Auburn.

Mealtime approaches and I rack my memory about good food in the towns along the way. That's what's so great about "100 Dishes" (a publication of Alabama's tourism department). You look at the road signs, check the pamphlet, and find something good.

Dothan? Grouper fingers at the Old Mill restaurant. Cullman? Hot orange rolls at All Steak. Prattville? Home cooking at Jim's Restaurant. Should you find yourself in Wetumpka, ancestral home of a distant branch of the Wood family, by all means avail yourself of the crab cakes and dill sauce at Our Place Cafe.

I picked up the brochure at an interstate rest stop. It's also downloadable as a PDF at the Alabama tourism site.
