BHM - Great Wall Chinese - The Real Deal

I wish we could get good Szechuan in the 'Ham. I think the closest place is in ATL.

Birmingham: Saw's not so great

I agree with Dax. Your experience is atypical. Saw's really is the best in the Birmingham area.

Primeaux Cheese and Vino

This place is definitely worth a visit. A good cheese and charcuterie offering with great sandwiches and desserts and coffee. They also sell wine and cheese retail. Bar or table service. They also have a selection of local craft beers. Enjoyed cheese and charcuterie plates there last night. Very nice addition to the scene at the Summit. They plan on having educational programs about cheese and wine pairing, too.

It's kind of ridiculously expensive, but the food is great.

One night in Birmingham

Been there a few times. It's really not too good.

I was so frustrated after our meal at Bettola that I stopped at Whole Foods and bought some Pecorino, Taleggio, prosciutto, and Humboldt fog to make our own charcuterie plate at home.

We went to Bettola tonight. The pasta dishes were great. However, the charcuterie plate was a pretty poor value. For 12 dollars we got two half thumb size pieces of cheese and two thin slices of speck ham. When in Italy we got a lot more generous portions for our money than that. I was pretty disgusted.

I like Saws better than Big Bob Gibson. Give them a try.

I'd make time for the jazz brunch at Veranda, too! I love it.

The prices at Hot and Hot are ridiculous. It's not worth it. Was there recently...

Ocean? Stone's Throw? Mikey's Grill? Anyone have an opinion on these? I like Ocean and Mikey's a LOT. I haven't tried Stone's Throw (Mt. Laurel) yet, and was hoping someone had.....

I agree, Dax, Jim and Nick's is good. And consistent. I also very much love Saw's. Have driven by their new place in Avondale twice and it was too packed to bother stopping (and waiting).

My experiences in Tuscaloosa

Is Kozy's closed? My experience there was pretty memorable. Not inexpensive, but the food was very good on my outing.

Birmingham for Lunch

I'd add 26 to sheilal's list. Not quite up to the others, but pretty close behind. I've never been disappointed there and it's a nice lunchtime vibe.

Any Birmingham hounds interested in a repeat cheese tasting?

Bham - Brisket

Best brisket I've ever had in my life wasn't smoked. It was cooked in beer for like ever. Then served with a special sauce. To die for. I need that recipe.

It's all good as far as I'm concerned. A road trip to Lockhart, would only take 14 hours. You in, Dax?
