What’s Happening from to

Capital Cool

The Cool Factor

  • Legendary country music crooner Hank Williams got his start in the capital city and frequented many Montgomery restaurants. He was known to often write songs while sitting at the lunch counter in Chris’ Hot Dogs on Dexter Avenue.
  • If you’re not from around here, some of the lingo you’ll read and hear at area restaurants may be confusing. Here’s a little dictionary to help decipher Southern food speak.
  • Meat & Three: Usually refers to more casual “home cooking” spots and means the menu offers a plate with your choice of one meat (fried chicken, country fried steak, fried catfish — sensing a pattern here?) and three sides, usually Southern-style vegetables like fried okra, fried green tomatoes, squash casserole, creamed corn, collard greens (see definition below) and more. Often served with cornbread or biscuit.
  • Sweet Tea: The default setting when you order a glass of iced-tea down here. And sweet means S-W-E-E-T. Specify “unsweet” if you don’t want any sugar. Or ask for half-and-half for just a little sweetness.

B.B. King’s Blues Club

Proud member of the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce

The newest B.B. King’s Blues Club, located at Wind Creek Casino and Hotel in Montgomery, serves up the best food the South has to offer, including our Lip Smackin’ baby-back ribs. Prepared wet or dry, a rack of these slow-cooked beauties offers up true flavor that can only come from Memphis-style barbecue. Served alongside other southern specialties including baked beans, mac n’ cheese, cole slaw, potato salad or collards, and accompanied by great music 7 nights a week. B.B. King’s has the flavors to fill any night with perfection.
