Grits are a time-honored tradition of the American South, second only to stealing magnolias and midnight Yankee tipping. Indulge in refined Southern customs with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of classic Southern fare at Mudtown on Green Valley Road.
Mudtown's menu features fresh, local ingredients that unite to reward patrons with delicious Southern comfort fare such as catfish, grits, and po' boys. Take a seat in Mudtown's intimate, cozy confines and dig into a plate of famous fried green tomatoes ($7.99), which is made with tomatoes freshly plucked from the Birmingham-based Murphree's Produce. Lunchers can munch on seven different sandwiches, such as the toasted Texas club ($8.49) or one of three burgers, including the spicy bayou burger with jalapeno jack cheese and mustard sauce ($8.99). Loose your tongue and let it dive into the merkle masa catfish ($14.99), a dish of farm-raised catfish fried and served with red rice after a childhood spent milking cows. Try the classic Charleston shrimp and grits ($16.99), which consists of garlic cheese grits, Andouille sausage, shrimp, and veggies, or sample the veggie pesto pasta ($11.99 and up).

Plucking their name from the American Indian nickname for the Cahaba River’s swampy banks, Mudtown’s owners and staff strive to embody their neighborhood, serving a menu of dishes prepared with fresh, locally sourced seafood, meat, and produce. In their intimate dining room, they cloak tables with hearty portions of new york strip steak with bacon mashed potatoes, grilled mahi mahi with fried green tomatoes, and Cajun po' boys with shrimp or catfish. Their bartenders liven up the southern-inspired American cuisine by shaking signature cocktails, such as their lemon-lime-drop martini, into glasses and pocket protectors. The staff also delivers meals through a catering service for special events such as corporate lunches and birthday parties.
