I don't know, really.

I just went there for lunch a few weeks ago and there was a sign on the door saying they were no longer open for lunch.

All those restaurants sound great but youre all forgetting the only one that really matters: Pete's Famous Hot Dogs. If youre downtown you cant leave without eating lunch there. Best hot dogs around

Absolutely correct! I don't know how I left it off the list.

RE: Updated 10/7/08--BlazerTalk.com Guide to B'ham
Thanks for the tips to make it easier on visitors. I came in Thursday from Memphis for the Tiger/UAB game and stayed for the race on Sunday. I fully support your recommendations on the Fish Market and Milo's, but not Dreamland BBQ. Dreamland had great service and good beans, but the ribs were terrible. No meat falling off the bone there. Needed a good set of teeth to pull the meat off and they had to much fat on them. The sauce was different, but well made for what it was. Need to take them off your list of recommended places to eat.

Believe it or not the best food I had was a place called "Mexican Restaurant" in downtown Talladega. Very good tasting mexican food and drinks.

Locals know that it's always a crapshoot when it comes to the quality of ribs at Dreamland. For me personally, the safe bet for good ribs is Full Moon BBQ.

I'm wondering if anybody has ever heard of or been to Bogue's Restaurant or Chris Z's? I picked up a Green and Gold Bucks booklet and it included those to places two eat.

Is Bogue's still on Clairmont? Excellent meat and three. I know people who just go for the cornbread muffins and sweet rolls.
