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.

Momma Goldberg’s Deli

Fill up on deli favorites at this casual sandwich shop that promises good food in a friendly atmosphere. There’s a hot secret behind its award-winning sandwiches: each is steamed to warm perfection, which brings out the meats’ savory flavors and makes the cheese nice and melty. Try its signature dish, the Momma’s Love sandwich, a generous pile of tender roast beef, hickory smoked turkey breast topped with all the fixins’ like spicy mustard, mayo, lettuce and tomatoes. Order a basket of Momma’s Nachos, Doritos smothered in pepper-jack cheese, to create a meal that’ll make your momma proud.
