We enjoyed a low key weekend around these parts. I have grown to appreciate the weekends at home even when the hubs has to work. Saturday after he got off work we had a late lunch date to the Irondale Cafe. The Alabama Department of Tourism created a list of the "100 dishes to eat in Alabama before you die." They originally did it years ago and then revamped the list for 2012. We thought it would be fun to try to eat at all the local places, and maybe even venture out to some of the others on the list. So this weekend we went to try the Fried Green Tomatoes at the Irondale Cafe. It was a cute little restaurant in "downtown" Irondale right next to the train tracks.
You go through a buffet line and choose your meat and veggies. You know the good veggies...mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, black eyed peas, etc. And of course the famous fried green tomatoes...
We enjoyed every.single.bite. This place was delicious! And of course the sweet tea was the best.
We decided that we had to find some room for dessert, and I'm glad we did! Blackberry cobbler with homemade vanilla ice cream.
I give this place a 10 out of 10! I think we will find ourselves at the Irondale Cafe again before too long! The quaint atmosphere and the good country cooking can't be beat. We spent the rest of the weekend enjoying the beautiful weather and catching up on things around the house. And like always, monday came too soon!
