      Interesting to note that there were no Joints listed in either Auburn or Tuscaloosa, which I would think would have at least one good College town Burger Joint!
      And there are no Happy Meals in Tuscaloosa tonite!

        I kept this article from the newspaper.  While I have visited some of them, I am hoping to make it to all of these joints - call it a project for 2014!
        And yes, no happy meals in and around Tuscaloosa, esp for me.

          I find it hard to believe that Rama Jama in Tuscaloosa didn't make the grade. I'm assuming they decided it's not a greasy spoon. I'd have to object if that is indeed the case.

          I've also been to Big Spring Cafe in Huntsville and it's a pretty cool place. It's a complete disheveled dump but that really just lends to the charm. Here is my visit to that place: http://davwudsfoodcourt.b...ste-of-huntsville.html

            the Oasis is on the list, about 5 minutes outside Ttown in Cottondale
