If you need a picture for a "hole in the wall" restaurant, Heavy's is it. A friend of mine suggested this for lunch, and being she's from Crawfordville I trusted her judgement. It is definitely different, with a dated cafeteria vibe. I welcome the unique...More

This was the Set for Sweet Home Alabama. Go in the back room and see. Good Hamburgers and BBQ. Lots of Antique cars and trucks on site.

I am a fan Bbq. I try to eat the local fare (tomato, vinegar, mustard, KC, etc). This was not BBQ. There was a strong smoke aroma when you walk into this dirty and dark cabin. I expected a BBQ meal and a dive location....More
