Another Broken Egg is a restaurant chain. One of the newer restayrants has just opened im Mountan Brook, Alabama
We ate here before attending a football game at Legion Field. While the wait was long, the host was very accommodating. When seats came available at the bar, we decided to sit there. Worst mistake! The pregnant Bartender was more concern about the young ladies at the other end of the bar then us. She was rude and short with us. Given that we did not give her a reason to be rude, I will blame it on ignorance on her part. The food and coffee was okay. I was more so put off by the attitude and bad customer services of the bartender. I will not recommend sitting at the bar, if you're not young, blonde, and blue eyes.

This is it, the best! Outstanding pulled pork and ribs with great sides like green beans, vinegar based slaw, potato salad, baked beans. All very good. Small place, but like moves quickly and seating turnover is prompt. On street parking and free public parking around corner. Don't miss Saws when you want excellent barbeque.

They sell the best gourmet, all natural popsicles in Birmingham!
Yum. I love this place. It's like gluten free heaven as even their cookie pieces are gluten free. Yes, all of them! Try the buttermilk, chocolate, passion fruit or strawberry lemonade. Heck, all are yummy! You can even get them dipped or drizzled or dredged with chocolate, caramel, cookie crumbs sea salt...all kind of yummy things. The flavor combos become endless. They are fresh, natural and so good. Oh, and if you pick a flavor and end up regretting the choice, they'll gladly swap it for one you love. They're friendly folks.

Local coffee place in Bham. I think they have 3 or 4 locations. The coffee is decent and I'm not a huge coffee drinker, but my wife is. Limited seating area, in downtown Homewood. My wife prefers Starbucks, but this place was not too bad with their fraps

Authentic, Southern Bar-B-Q. Meats are slow-smoked continuously around the clock to ensure only the freshest product. All trimmings are made from scratch daily (there's no freezer in the whole building!) Dine In, Drive Thru, To Go, and Catering available.
I ordered $157 worth of take-out and even bought a t-shirt for the road. Total bill 179.86.
The next day i shredded my paper receipt, but the credit card charge was for 189.86. I can only assume some one wrote in a $10 tip for over the counter service. Very disappointing.
I spoke with the back of house manager 3 days later who took my details and said it would be sorted but I have no refund for the $10 and no contact from the restaurant.
Too bad. JNN was my go-to when in town. I will not be back.

El Barrio is delicious and consistent! After trying just about everything on the menu, I can say the attention detail and quality of food is papable in every dish. Plus, the bartenders are nice! Ask for an OG Margarita, it comes served as they did when they opened.
Two things to note about El B: 1) Lots of people love this place, read as the wait can be crazy, 2) If you can time it right, you can avoid the wait. Pro tip: Get there between 5:00 and 5:20 and you should be good, also go early on Tuesday and Wednesday for less traffic in general.

Stepping inside this restaurant, it's difficult to imagine that you're in Birmingham. No southern style food here; its menu is full of French items, and the waiter began the presentation with an elaborate array of specials, which all sounded delicious.
I opted to try an escargo plate for an appetizer and a more conventional "country dish" of croque madame for the entree. The restaurant scored well with both; in fact, the snails were tastier than most that I've had in Paris. This surprising restaurant lives up to its hype, and should be high on the list of any visitor who considers themselves a "foodie."
The service is very prompt and courteous, far faster than anything you'll experience in Paris.

This little place gets 5’s for everything but flavor. Was expecting more robust flavors from the salsa’s and the tacos. I had the brisket and the Adobada. The green chili burger was highlight of our meal. Burrito bowl was huge. Tequila Mockingbird and Paloma were great. Beer was a little warmer than I wanted and I wanted a cold glass with my bottled beer. Staff was excellent. Music was a little loud but the selection was great. I would return and sample the rest of the tacos, cheese dip and Caesar salad bowl. I would suggest an appetizer sampler of all the salsa’s and an entree sampler of all the tacos

If you order a meal and it comes out too hot and spicy. You are out of luck. Set sent our food back jalapeño peppers all over it. Kitchen pick the meat out put it on clean plate send it back out the jalapeño seeds all over it. Server said if you wanted a new meal they would have to charge you for it. At this point it's time to go. Wow...
