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.

Five Guys Burgers & Fries

Have your big, juicy, fresh burger exactly how you want it at Five Guys, where attention to detail and quality ingredients are evident in every delicious bite. There are thousands of ways to customize your burger, from basics like tomato, pickles and mayo to grilled mushrooms and hot sauce. Add as many toppings as you want, for free. There is no incorrect combo, and the classic but crowd-favorite Bacon Cheeseburger is this place’s signature dish. The only thing that would be wrong is to not order a side of crispy, hand-cut fries cooked to golden perfection in peanut oil. Go ahead and get a handspun milkshake or frosty Coke too.
