What’s cool to do 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.

Kudzu Noodle Bar

Kudzu Noodle Bar blends Southern charm and Southern ingredients with the flavors of Vietnam, Thailand, Korea, and Japan. When you visit Kudzu you’re introduced to classic Ramen - rich and hearty broth, light and airy noodles, stir fried vegetables, savory slow roasted meats, and our signature soy-marinated eggs - but with a Southern twist.
