Famous Dishes

Smoked Chicken with White BBQ Sauce

White barbecue sauce is truly an Alabama specialty, and the Cypress Inn in Tuscaloosa has a version that would make fans all over the state proud. This dish starts with marinated chicken smoked in-house with hickory wood and charcoal. After being smoked until tender, the chicken is then grilled and served with plenty of Cypress Inn's famous white barbecue sauce. Choose two side items like smoked Gouda grits or Hoppin' John, and enjoy the view of the Black Warrior River from the elegant dining room.
