Famous Dishes

Meat and three


Opened in 1931, the City Cafe is another Alabama institution that may look modest from the street view but is nothing but when you get your hands on what’s inside. The cafe specializes in affordable fare you can’t afford to pass up, like the meat and three. Just pair your favorite meat (fried chicken, meatloaf, hamburger steak, etc.) with your favorite sides (mashed potatoes, candied yams, fried green tomatoes, coleslaw, mac and cheese… the list goes on for a while). This incredible deal comes with generous portions, a drink and bread and doesn’t even put you back $10. It’s simple, homemade goodness that keeps the City Cafe alive.
