Todd English P.U.B. comes to Birmingham!

Posted by bhamfoodscoop on February 8, 2013

I’m so thrilled that Birmingham is adding to its already “delicious” foodie scene! Todd English P.U.B. will be opening next week (Thursday Todd English PubFebruary 14, 2013) inside of the new Westin Hotel at the Uptown Entertainment District.

William Todd English is a celebrity chef, restauranteur, author, entrepreneur, and television personality.

This pub themed restaurant specializes in American comfort foods and creative delicacies with an English twist, and of course since we live in the South, there will be a Southern twist as well. Highlights from the menu include a raw seafood bar, a variety of pot pies, burgers, salads, pickled foods, fish & chips, and over 60 beers on tap (including some local favs). And I wouldn’t be surprised if they added fried chicken for us Southerners lol!

For some reason, I feel that Todd English P.U.B. will resemble the television sitcom Cheers, lol idk but I do know that I will be there to see if this is true and to taste the food, of course. I’m so looking forward to everything about this restaurant and the strong impact that it will have on this great city of Birmingham.

Stay tuned for my review on the restaurant!

A pizzeria outside of the city

Posted by bhamfoodscoop on August 11, 2011

The other night I was at a friend’s house and we ordered Buck’s Pizza. This establishment is located in Warrior, Alabama and they delivered to Morris (near Gardendale). We kept it simple and got a large pepperoni pizza with a side of mild chicken wings. It took about an hour for them to deliver the pizza, but once we got it, we were pleased.

In my opinion the pizza portion was very good, not too greasy and it had a tasty sauce, however, the crust was bland and needed more flavor; perhaps some butter or a special Italian seasoning on it. The chicken wings were a decent size and they came with a large cup of ranch dressing for dipping. We really enjoyed those wings because they had a delicious seasoning on them. There were about ten wings, and before we knew it they were all gone!

In all, the food was tasty. So if you are ever in the Warrior/Morris/Gardendale area give Buck’s Pizza a try! The food is fairly priced and the menu consists of pizzas, hoagies, strombolis, salads, chicken wings, and a few side items.

New Restaurants

Posted by bhamfoodscoop on March 23, 2011

I have some exciting news about new restaurants that will be opening up in the Birmingham area, very soon. Check them out:

  • Momma Goldberg’s Deli and McKee’s Irish Pub will be opening in the new Cityville Condos on 20th Street South, near UAB. Each of these restaurants will offer indoor and outdoor patio seating. I’ve never had anything from McKee’s Irish Pub, but I do know that Momma G’s reminds me of my exciting college days at Auburn, and did I also mention that I love their salads, nachos, and sandwiches.
  • Traditions Restaurant at Park Place Towers, across from Linn Park and next to Sneaky Pete’s , just opened and they offer southern cooking with very reasonably priced daily meat-and-three lunch specials. Their breakfast features made-to-order omelets and fresh baked biscuits. Call 327-7999 for more info.


Diners will have a new restaurant option in the mid-town area of Downtown. Sweet Tea Restaurant is expected to open in April and will be located at the corner of 3rd Ave South and 22nd Street. Operator Mike Skaran says the restaurant will offer a southern inspired menu serving breakfast and a cafeteria style lunch, with table seating and an extended menu for dinner, which will include wine and cocktails. I can’t wait to see how a cafeteria style lunch restaurant is going to switch gears and serve wine and cocktails!

  • Izzo’s Illegal Burrito will open its first Alabama location at The Summit in Birmingham (former Coach storefront). The restaurant is a Mexican fast-casual concept that specializes in hand-rolled burritos, tacos, quesadillas and nachos from a made-from-scratch  kitchen. I’m eager to see how this is going to work out since there is already another Mexican restaurant (Chuy’s) located at The Summit.
