Chez Fon Fon: Best Hamburger in Bham

Posted by bhamfoodscoop on April 3, 2010

Chez Fon Fon brings a little touch of Paris to Five Points South. I went there with two other friends yesterday and we were enthralled with the ambiance and the food. When we first arrived, I did valet parking to ease my fears of not finding a parking space. Once we walked in, I felt like I was vacationing in Paris all over again. Everything from the design of the restaurant to the waiters style of dress, just screamed “Paris”!

We only had to wait about 15 minutes for a table so we sat at the bar and talked to a few tourists and the bartender. Before I knew it, it was time to sit down. Our waiter (pictured on the left) was from Italy and he explained the menu to us. Me and B were both prepared to order the tuna until the waiter said they didn’t have anymore. Now this was a turn off because everyone from the bartender, to the hostess, to the waiter told us to try the tuna and when we wanted it, they had run out. Anyway, B and I got the Parisian Hamburger with French Fries and Miss P got a Parisian Turkey Sandwich on a bed of lettuce. Words can’t describe how well seasoned and juicy the hamburger was. Just know that this hamburger is worth your visit. We were all pleased with our meals.

The atmosphere was so authentic, inviting and relaxing that we just sat there and talked for hours because we didn’t want to leave. However, when we left we vowed that we would return because the meal was worth every penny. We scored the restaurant on a scale of 1 to 10 and our score was an 8.8.

I feel that a true international foodie must go here because it allows you to escape the “Birmingham mindset” and to enjoy food, decor & service that resembles Paris, France!
