Charlie B's the lunch place

Home cooking and plenty of smiles. Check out the peach cobbler.

Hello fellow travelers Forester Jeff is back on the road dining as usual in some of the best kept secret restaurants. I have now dinned at Charlie B's for Sunday brunch, daily lunch and the outstanding Friday Night SEAFOOD BUFFET! This is a place you will want to visit again and again, with real down home Alabama cooking yes sir this place hits the spot. Believe me Forester Jeff enjoys good food and plenty of it, but don't just take my word CHECK THIS PLACE OUT! Fridays Charlie B's has live music for your dinner entertainment. The manager is quite personable and always remembers my face when I arrive. I still remember when the Round the Clock Restaurant was at this same location and rest assured the food is better you want be disappointed.

We were from out of town. We met friends for lunch. The BBQ was excellent, the portions large so excellent value. The only disappointment was the fried pickles. They were no Spears, but rather chips and overcooked.

My husband and two kids were visiting from out of town & ate dinner here and really enjoyed it. We ordered boudin balls for an appetizer, crawfish platter, Atchafalaya special & a kids chicken tenders. The boudin balls were ok, kids tenders were dry but everything else was very good & you get plenty of food. We would definitely go back if we were in the area.

O'So Good BBQ

Reviewed By Judy19 - Birmingham, AL

Whether you're after barbecue (their ribs are award-winning) or catfish or plain ol' Southern home cooking, O'So Good is fabulous. Big dining area accommodates groups & there's easy access in & out. Its proximity to Palisades Park makes it the perfect spot to pick up a picnic lunch. Can't pass through this area without stopping here. They also do catering.

Habaneros Mexican Grill

Reviewed By jeffbrtr - Birmingham, AL

Really good food here. I'm not sure if we caught them at a bad time but it didn't seem like they had enough wait staff to keep up with the amount of diners. We were left without drink refills and enough silverware to go around. The food was very good though, I will go back.

We always can count on a good meat at Cafe on Main. This location is operated by the daughter of the owner in Trussville. I have never had anything that wasn't tasty. The old house is cozy and the service is very good as well. Be sure to try the chicken and dressing and fried catfish. Sunday it is buffet only but during the week you can order burgers and they are great.

China Wok offers an extensive buffet which includes a fruit and salad bar, sushi bar, daily soups, an extensive choice of entree items, vegetables (Chinese style, of course), and a dessert bar. The buffet is all you can eat for those with large appetities or several teenagers to feed. The price is very reasonable and the number of choices makes it ideal for a family.

We stopped by Sonic after a sporting event in Oneonta for a "quick" bite. THIRTY (yes 30) minutes after placing our order we received our food of which 2 of the 3 items we ordered were ice cold! When I told the kid that brought the food that the tots and rings were ice cold, he went inside to "check". He then came out again to ask if we wanted them changed out as they had fresh food available. I didn't understand that step at all. Why ask?? Why not bring fresh food. He finally took the cold food inside. 5 minutes later we still do not have fresh, hot food when another person came out to tell me they were cooking fresh food. Well, the first kid lied - they did not have food ready. I asked to speak to a manager. She finally came out and brought fresh onion rings but not tots. The communication at this location is terrible and the service even worse. The manager thought all we were waiting on were onion rings. On the FIFTH trip out to our car, we got the tots. Never mind that the first kid took our bag with all our napkins, etc. The manager did apologize and said that they were overwhelmed with frying on the BOGO wing night. Likely story but there were only 4 - 6 other cars in the facility while we were there. We will not be frequenting this location again. In my opinion the manger did a poor job of handling the situation. There is little excuse to be at a Sonic for 40 minutes.

The restaurant was very nice and clean in the inside. The staff was attentive and friendly BUT.....the food was not great at all. Not much food on the buffet and I've tasted better pizza from a box in the freezer section of Walmart. I won't be going back.
