The Diner Restaurant Group dishes up its home-style menu with quick, friendly service in classic-diner style. Patrons can treat themselves and a loved one, coworker, or imaginary friend to a feast for two that will pique their hunger teeth and activate dormant burger glands at the base of their skulls so that their jaws unhinge a little. Duos get two of the eatery's boeuf de résistance—a fresh ground-chuck burger loaded with lettuce, tomato, butter pickles, special sauce, and the choice of american, swiss, or pepper-jack cheese, all layered on a freshly-baked bun and served along with fresh-cut fries (a $13.98 value). Two sides of coleslaw (a $2.98 value) and two Coca-Colas (a $3.38 value) round out the meal.

There’s no shortage of renowned oyster establishments in the South. But TripSmarter.com pegged Wintzell’s Oyster House as its #1 destination for the specialty. “Fried, stewed, or nude,” they come served in every way imaginable at Wintzell’s—oysters are, unsurprisingly so, the trademark dish. And they’ve been the trademark dish since the eatery’s flagship location opened in 1938.

Regional seafood favorites also dominate the menu, from low-country boils to Cajun seafood fettuccine and bacon-wrapped shrimp. While the original location became something of a landmark in historic Mobile, the restaurant has since expanded to multiple locations. Each one, though, retains the original’s decorative signature: several dozen whimsical signs on the walls. The website even features some of their slogans: “Never kick a man when he is down—he may get up.”

What’s in a name? For Big Daddy’s Mediterranean Grill, the answer might be “a surprise.” While the moniker might suggest a no-frills barbecue joint, the name actually belongs to a laid-back hookah joint where smoke curls skyward and platters of Mediterranean feasts populate the tables. After digging into kebabs, falafel, or squares of flaky baklava, guests can take a few puffs of a hookah loaded with 1 of nearly 30 available shisha flavors. Open late on weekdays and until 2:30 a.m. on weekends, the grill’s exposed-brick walls and twinkling fairy lights maintain an atmosphere appropriate for sophisticated excursions and late-night bull sessions alike.
