You can't ask where to eat in Tuscaloosa? I liked Wintzells oyster house when I was in Alabama but I can't remember if there was one in Tuscaloosa.

I thought dreamland sucked! Course maybe it's just cause it was in Tuscaloosa. We got there right after the tornadoes. I knew a guy that was working there at the time and the hotels across the street from his was gone. He was walking down the street in shock talking on the phone counting bodies. Sad sad day.

All Iknow about Tuscaloosa is that you donít pull a bass boat thru town doing 81 mph. There is a BIG African American State Trooper that will ask you for your autograph.

We enjoyed Dreamland on 15th more than the one in Northport.

Go to the Bear Bryant museum. At least there is an A&M connection.

Iíll check with our daughter though some things have probably changed since she graduated.

If your driving give the Delta Hot Tamales a try in Mississippi. Google will tell you the top spots based on your route.

Was not a fan of Dreamland and would rate it near the bottom of any BBQ I have ever eaten.
I am sure that Bryant Denny will be rocking on Saturday night. Be careful and Gig'em Aggies! Jimbo is going to earn some of that salary if he can keep this one close.
Adios,
Gary

graduated in 2011 - Haven't been back in years, but will try to give some insight.
Unless it has changed, Gallettes is the large prototypical college bar its old and has a lot of good miles on it, it gets packed, it gets dirty, but its home. It is next to the stadium and the Yellowhammers are good. Bear Trap was a little cleaner, this may be different now. Innisfree is downtown, and became the biggest competitor to Gallettes. Baumhower wings (Bob Baumhower) is a sports bar off the path but popular.
BBQ:
Archibald's - I have never been, but have always heard it is the best.
Dreamland - went a few times. nothing to write home about.
* Big Bad Wolf - this would be my pick if it is still there. It was always a gameday tent set up. which was always on the strip - kinda across from Gallettes in front of the Publix grocery store. This will be the easiest. I still think about their BBQ nachos all the time, and when I go back it will be a priority) - BBQ sandwhichs, etc. are good. good BBQ sauce.

Downtown - has a great feel to it, has some cleaner/nicer dives to hit up. Im sure they have many more options than the two: Chucks Fish and Depalmas - that were the go to when parents came to town.

First, if you drive in on I-20 do not stop from Livingston Al. until you get to Tuscaloosa. Not worth taking a chance, especially at night. Gas up etc before you get out of Ms.

The main place people set up tents etc. is on the Quad around Denny Chimes. Foster Auditorium and Plaza, where Gov. Wallace stood in the schoolhouse door. Are just SE of the Quad. Churches etc are in this area if you want to say a quick prayer before going to Bryant-Denny.

There are also people who set up in their tailgates in long time spots through campus. Just say hello and start talking football, hunting, BBQ or fried chicken and you will be welcomed.

Sorority Row is east of Bryant-Denny. Bryant Museum is farther east. Athletic facilities and offices are in that area. I guess the Trolleys will be running in these areas and to Downtown. Chuckís, 5, Moeís bbq and dePalmaís are restaurants downtown.
If you come off I-20 on McFarland Blvd take a left(north). This runs you by Full Moon BBQ (pork plate, collards twice, beans, chow chow, slice of chocolate and sweet tea). Admittedly not Texas brisket but it ainít bad. Obviously you will be dissatisfied with the brisket, so donít order it. Just up the street is Taco Casa, fast food and NOT in the car food because they are messy.. MidTown SC is across the street and has Bobís Victory Grill(Baumhowerís chain).
Archibaldís for ribs. Across the river on MLK Drive in Northport. There is a Dreamland location in NP too but Iíve never been there. Billyís Bar is in NP too but if you are married and your wife is with you, donít go. There are a few places in that one that sell French hand sewn stuff, antiques and jewelry. Just donít do it.

All of these places will have will have food trucks around the Quad but then Iíve never eaten anything from a food truck.

The historic location you need to see is on the Plaza in front of Bryant-Denny. The 1930 National Championsí plaque and on a column on one of the East side gates a plaque on the column for the dedication of Denny Stadium. Coach Jess Neelyís name is on both. Coach Neely was Burnadellís Head Coach!. There are some statues out there too but this is the real deal.
SW corner of the stadium is Rama Jamaís . Across the Street from the stadium is the cemetery where Bert Bank, one of the Battling *******sof Bataan, is buried. Look towards the NE corner of the Cemetery and say a little prayer he was a good man.

Youíll find everything you want or donít want on the Strip. If the game is delayed and runs late use your head and donít wander too far off the main drag. Street lighting is not good in some neighborhoods.

More later

Now BoB, head on back over to the CFB Week 4 thread where football is talked. I and others have not said anything about the 40 on this thread.
Plus we all know you put this stuff on Mueller's BBQ after it is served.
