Huntsville Al with side trips - Sun, 01/13/13 12:56 PM

I don't know why I cant get the search function to find it, or maybe it is a food desert.  Going to be in Huntsville Alabama for a while, and looking for suggestions.  Side trips to include Chattanooga and Nashville.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and I will be there about 12 weeks, and thats a long time to do without roadfooding.............

The Dining Dragon is the most detailed food blog to cover Huntsville:

...but my favorite is this forum's own Davwud's Food Court, who can tell you about some good eats in Huntsville, Nashville, and Chatta:

Cheree Moore, aka Mohaus, also covers the region and some of the spaces between in north Alabama, pretty well, too.  Her review of Edith Ann's Taste of Home Diner had me wanting to head back that way:

And for BBQ lovers, if you're interested in what's available anywhere north of B'ham and south of Tennessee, then The Great North Alabama BBQ Quest is a must-visit.  I'm generally pleased with our blog's coverage of BBQ in the south, but this guy's focus is simply amazing:

As for my own limited experiences in the region, I thought Little Paul's Barbecue was pretty good, and Mary's in nearby Gurley was amazing, and the decrepit and aging Gibson's was a big disappointment.

Thanks for the shout out HBS.
 
You can search my blog by state. I'll give you some quick heads up though.
The first thing I'll do is suggest a trip to Duffy's Deli. They're gonna be closing soon (not sure when, maybe as long as 2 years from now) and you really need to try the White Chili before they do. It's spectacular. Here's my take on it on another thread. One that may be of particular interest to you.

Though I think my favourite ribs are at Dreamland in HSV the best BBQ in the area can be had at Chuckwagon Diner in Fayetteville. There's also a Chuckwagon in Madison which is also supposed to be excellent. I've yet to make it.
 
The best Meat n 3 can be found at Stan's in Columbia, Tn.
 
Fried chicken in Chatt. is at Champy's.
 
Best Pizza is Big Ed's in HSV.
