Restaurants in Montgomery, AL

Montgomery, Alabama’s state capital, was the home of both Hank Williams and Martin Luther King. The legacy of these two towering figures, so different in so many ways, is reflected in a city with complex culinary personality, from sassy chili dogs to southern comfort food to soulful barbecue to Gulf Coast seafood. In that last category, the hidden-gem Roadfood treasure is Jubilee Seafood, a plain-looking place with Gulf-Coast treasures that include an aristocratic West Indies salad. Other Montogmery must-eats include a meal at the Stockyard Grill, where cattlemen go for steaks and burgers followed by buttermilk pie. A detour west, to Selma, is essential for a taste of legendary Lannie’s Bar-B-Q, which has been a culinary destination for over 70 years.
