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.

GT South Geek & Gaming Tavern

Feel free to geek out and get your video game on at this creative take on nightlife where “Doctor Who” or the latest anime is showing on TVs, and game stations invite folks to come in and get social while they play. Drinks and food are a big part of the fun, and the menu is a tribute to classic comic book, sci-fi and fantasy genre characters. Try the signature dish, the Boba Feta, a burger made with a half-pound house-made beef patty stuffed with salty feta cheese and smoky bacon.
