Pizza Pizza & Wings

Birmingham is becoming home to a number of new pizza pop ups! Many of them are quick cook pizza which I like as I'm greedy. A new chain that's bringing the heat is Ironstone Pizza. They have locations in Vestaiva, Hoover & Trussville is coming soon. Of course, my favorite pizza at Ironstone is the might meat. They have great vegan & vegetarian options if that's your thing, plus salads and desserts. Now, if there are chicken wings to be eaten, I want to know about it! Sleek Sports Bar on the southside wing game is on the winning team. They use a secret ingredient rub on the wings. When it comes to the drink, I had to be a little careful that I didn't hurt anyone in Lakeview! Check them out on

Lots of Chicken &Tamales

Everyone loves a delicious Philly Cheese Steak, but how can you create those same yummy flavor on a Mississippi Tamale? Just stop in a Delta Blues Hot Tamales on the Southside and try it for yourself! Delta Blues is an amazing spot if you have food allergies like Celacis disease or need a gluten free diet. A couple other favorites of mine there are the wings, corn maaque choux & queso dip. They're nestled on Cobb Lane on the Southside and is a perfect spot as the weather warms up. Now moving on to my favorite thing in the world...chicken! There's nothing like a delicious chicken wing and the smoked wings from Swamp Monster BBQ in Hoover is definitely on my top ten wings joints. They're crisp

Triple Decker Burger & Brunchin

Everyone loves a BIG, juicy burger with lots of cheese & bacon, but can you eat one that's wedged between 2 grilled cheese sandwiches??? You can if you get the HangOver Burger from Twisted Root Burger in Vestavia, AL. Twisted Root has an array of burgers including many with game meat, like camel, boar, kangaroo and antelope. They also have a vegan that I've been told is pretty delicious. What can wash that down? Any of their decadent flavor shakes of course!!! Stop in today and please let me know if you can finish that burger! Now, thanks to everyone who's taken my Bham Eat Drink Ride Food Tour. Many of you have said I am going to and have not. I'm actually taking you on the tour, so you can

Sweet treats, pizza & Salmon croquettes

There's a new fast cook pizza pizza joint in town and & perfect for the spring as the otudoor seating is incredilble. Bird's Pizza Bar is the newest spot on the corner in the Lakeview Community. All pizzas are cooked fresh and hot in 3 minutes. All ingredients are fresh. Now some of the flavors will have you asking yourself, do I want to drink it or eat such as the Moonshine pizza. There's even a vegan option which is the Bad Hunter pizza. But the one I tried was the chicken buffalo pizza. Why? Because I love chicken! You must order a bowl of the Bird Wings. It is a pork shank riblet that is topped with some of the best home made white sauce I've ever had, then topped with scallions. De-lish

Burgers, Soul Food & Bubble Tea

If you love an incredible burger and a UAB Blazer fan, you will definitely enJOY the entire menu at Chris Z’s in the Lakeview District in Birmingham, Alabama. Chris Z’s specializes in burgers, sandwiches & a gigantic breakfast called “The Big Nasty.” It gives you every meat off the breakfast menu. You will get full if you can finish it all, but I’m not promising you will do much after breakfast! Outside of the friendly staff, the other thing I loved about the food at Chris Z’s was the consistency of the food. He used very simple products to make something taste soooo delicious! Chris Z’s is only open for breakfast and lunch Monday-Saturday. Curiosity got the best of me when I saw this new s
