10 Best Tuscaloosa Restaurants

Tuscaloosa hosts thousands of visitors every year so having good restaurants is a must! We had the pleasure of trying these and we think they are the best restaurants in Tuscaloosa!

Thomas Rib Shack: This is not only a local favorite in Tuscaloosa but one that has people leaving the interstate and making a pit stop for their famous ribs and pulled pork. Their home cooked southern favorites will have you coming back for more!

Thomas Rib Shack is located at 2931 15th Street

Nicks in the Sticks: one thing is for sure about Nick’s, you better get there early if you want a seat! Those ribeye’s and filets speak for themselves but make sure you get a couple Nicodemus to wash them down!

Nick’s in the Sticks is located at 4018 Culver Road

Rama Jama’s: located mere steps from Bryant-Denny Stadium, this Alabama football grill serves one of the best breakfasts you’ll find in Tuscaloosa. We’ve heard their burgers are pretty good too! You’ll spend as much time eating as you will gazing at the memorabilia that spans generations!

Rama Jama’s is located at 1000 Paul W. Bryant Drive

Dreamland BBQ Original: Dreamland BBQ’s reputation precedes them! Opened in 1958 by Big Daddy Bishop, their hickory fired ribs not only have a unique flavor but combined with their sauce, they are hands down the best ribs we have ever eaten, and thousands of people nationwide feel the same way.

Dreamland’s Original location is at 5535 15th Avenue

Five: we didn’t know what to expect from the restaurant with just 5 items in each of their menu categories but what resulted was one of our favorite meals in Tuscaloosa! You won’t go wrong with any of your choices but make sure the baked pimento and cheese with pepper jelly is your appetizer!

Five is located at 2324 6th Street

Waysider: This cozy restaurant had us feeling vibes of eating breakfast at grandma’s house! The southern fare was delicious and there is a reason they are famous for their biscuits! Pay attention
