Roadfood Adventures: Selma to Montgomery, Alabama

3 STOPS | 51 MILES | 1 hr 5 min

Sweet Home Alabama! … from Selma – Queen City of the Blackbelt – to Montgomery — the Heart of Dixie —  is an inspiring journey through the Deep South. Selma is all about the birth of the 20th century Civil Rights movement as well as home to some of the best BBQ in the nation. Montgomery, the 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, defines a city with complex personality that includes a never-ending banquet of good eats, from sassy chili dogs to southern comfort food to soulful barbecue to a Gulf Coast seafood feast.

One of Alabama's best BBQ parlors, Lannie's is a 70+ year-old restaurant serving succulent smoke-cooked pulled pork and ribs as well as big hamburgers.


Brenda’s BBQ
