Get to know Montgomery

World-changing events have happened in Montgomery, Alabama. It’s where the telegram that started the Civil War was sent from. Almost a century later, thanks to Rosa Parks’ courageous defiance, it’s where the match that ignited the Civil Rights movement was struck. In a city so steeped in history, it’s no surprise that some of the oldest restaurants in Montgomery, Alabama, are the culinary highlights.

To start the day off on the right foot, head to Prevail Coffee for some delicious and ethically sourced coffee beans. For lunch options that offer a taste of lots of flavors, try Chris’ Hot Dogs for a 100-plus-year-old traditional dog, D’Road Cafe for a savory empanada, and Central for a hearty and power filled plate of Southern comfort. A nice dinner can be found at Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, Wintzell’s Oyster House, and La Jolla. For a booze filled drink, visit Common Bond Brewers or LeRoy Lounge. Make sure you make time to eat in this culture and history filled city.
