Tuscaloosa Restaurant

Going to Alabama-Auburn game with college-boy son in a few weeks. Want to know where the best places are to eat in Tuscaloosa? Want to treat my boy to good eating.

Hate to break the news, but this year the game is in Auburn, not Tuscaloosa.

Auburn's population essentially doubles during a football game. Be prepared for EVERYWHERE to be packed. Since it's an early afternoon game (1:00?), expect to tailgate it for lunch. One of the Auburn traditions is the family tailgating atmosphere of game days. Unless you leave the game early, expect it to take quite a while to get out of town. There are nice restaurants in town, but I'm assuming you'll be heading west towards Birmingham after the game. You can either hang around town (hopefully in defeat) or look for restaurant in Birmingham. There's not too much on US Hwy 280 between Auburn and Birmingham.

Do I detect some (good natured)football rivalry among fellow Fodorites? Could we actually talk about something other than the best deli in NYC?
I'm Bama grad and fan, but honestly think Auburn will tear Bama up this year. Four of my nephews attend Bama now, but have friends at Auburn, and I am proud to say that they speak well of the Auburn crowd.
Roll Tide!

Ah yes, the state is showing their colors today. All my family has attended Auburn. (3 BS, 1 MBA, 1 undergraduate work, 1 post graduate work) Many people here discuss various cities as college towns - but they're not my idea of a college town. Almost everyone in town is connected to the school - as a student, faculty, staff, or being married to one.

I'm showing my age, but when I was there, Toomer's Corner was rolled when Auburn won an away game. It seems like this is a typical occurance now for any victory.

One way or another, welcome to "the loveliest village on the Plains."

Both sides are teams full of criminals who don't belong in college. What are the SAT scores. Can any of Auburn's halfbacks spell CAT? Can any of Alabama's defensive tackles multiply 3 X 4?

Jimbo, please provide the NCAA stats for these universities to back up your claim.

S: I don't know your age but I can remember when the Iron Bowl was only played in B'ham. (I was at Bama 76-79.)Before I went to college, I attended the famous 17-16 game. From our seats, we clearly saw thoses blocked punts.
Do you live in Auburn now?
