Everyone had a great meal but the Chicken and waffles were wonderful. The chicken was season flavorfully without too much heat. It was just as good the next day because the serving size was enough to take some home.

To be honest, we went here because every other restaurant in Avondale was crowded and Rowes had no wait. Once inside though I was pleasantly surprised. Good atmosphere. Good beer selection (as most Birmingham restaurants do) and a neat menu. I had the burger with...More
