Well hello everyone. As promised last week I wanted to do a Tuesday Travel blog on places to eat in Tuscaloosa, AL. If you are there for a Bama football game - you can find plenty of places to eat. My mouth just waters when I think of some of them!
My #1 favorite has to be Taco Casa - now I have to tell you...there are other fast food Mexican restaurants with the same name...but buyer beware...the original Taco Casa was opened in Tuscaloosa and can be found with the cactus out front!
Everything is delicious there but I love the mild tacos and mild frijoles. You can order your food with either mild, hot or very hot sauce. Let me tell you a secret - they have yet another sauce that they do not advertise....it is not for the faint at heart. It is HOT...HOT...HOT...f you are brave enough to try it...ask them for the hottest sauce that they have.
If you are looking for a nice Italian restaurant - you should try Depalma's located in downtown Tuscaloosa. It has some of the best food that I have ever tasted.
Just a word of warning...be prepared for a wait. You know that it has to be good if you have to wait. IT IS SO WORTH IT TOO!
If you are in the mood for fish - you might want to try Chucks Fish:
Something special about Chucks - on Thanksgiving they offer a free Thanksgiving meal. All that they ask is if you can make a donation to do so. This restaurant truly knows how to give back to the community!
Last but not least this week - do yourself a favot - have breakfast at The Waysider on Greensboro. The best homemade bisquits, grits, gravy...*oh yummy*
This is only a small sampling of the wonderful restaurants in Tuscaloosa. I could write a blog just about bar-b-q that can be found in Tuscaloosa!
One last thing....ROLL TIDE and please do enjoy the culinary delights that this city has to offer!
