Po Boy Factory

Po Boy Factory

American | Average Cost ($8-$14) | Downtown Huntsville | 3 out of 5

It always seems like there’s not a lot to do to celebrate on Mardi Gras if you’re not in New Orleans or Mobile. This year, I decided that Shane and I should try the fare at Po Boy Factory to give our readers a taste of New Orleans on Mardi Gras

Surie of Madison

Surie of Madison

Asian | Average Cost ($8-$14) | Madison | 3 out of 5

Although I don’t eat at Surie often, I had tried it when it was still Surin, the Thai chain with Huntsville and Birmingham locations. Like Phuket, Surie “borrows” Surin’s menu without hesitation

Venice Pizza

Venice Pizza

American | Average Cost ($8-$14) | West Huntsville | 3 out of 5

Venice Pizza fits the Huntsville mold well. It’s simple and friendly like other restaurants around here, but it feels like the typical home-owned pizza place you’d find in a big city suburb

Tommy's Pizza

Tommy’s Pizza

American | Average Cost ($8-$14) | Southeast Huntsville | 3 out of 5

I’ve never had pizza in New York. As a matter of fact, except for a flight connection at JFK, I’ve never even been to NYC. So, I feel ill-prepared to critique Tommy’s, but I figure good food is good food wherever you may eat it

Old Greenbrier Barbeque

Old Greenbrier Barbeque

American | Average Cost ($8-$14) | Outside Madison County | 4 out of 5

We are suckers for restaurants with character. Sometimes, that means that we might enjoy eating at dives that other people would snub their noses at, and Greenbrier is one of those places

Chuckwagon BBQ

Chuckwagon BBQ

American | Average Cost ($8-$14) | Madison | 3 out of 5

For this review, I partook in a manly-man lunch in a manly-man place; sorry, no Melanie allowed on this one. I’ll cut straight to the chase: I doubt you’ll find better barbecue in the Huntsville area

Tim's Cajun Kitchen

Tim’s Cajun Kitchen

American | Average Cost ($8-$14) | West Huntsville | 3 out of 5

Sometimes, I’m in a jeans and t-shirt food mood. If I’m at home, this means I’ll make chili or we’ll order a pizza. If I’m eating around town, this means I’ll hit up Taco Bell or our latest spot for review: Tim’s Cajun Kitchen

Brix

Brix

American | A Bit Costly ($15-$25) | Southeast Huntsville | 3 out of 5

I got my first taste of tapas when Shane and I were honeymooning in Savannah, Georgia. The place where we tried them was too hip for us, but the ability to be able to try several small dishes was something we enjoyed. At that time, we didn’t know of a place in Huntsville that offered tapas

Grandmother's House

Grandmother’s House

American | Average Cost ($8-$14) | Jones Valley/Hampton Cove | 2 out of 5

I think most southerners would say the best food they’ve ever had was at their grandmother’s house. For many of us, our grandmothers make dishes that we can never replicate, even with their recipes.
