This was one of the highlights of our day trip to Birmingham. After walking the historic district, taking in the Birmingham Civil Rights Museum, visiting the 16th Street Baptist Church and viewing the moving statuary in Kelly Ingram Park we needed a chance to sit, relax and reflect. As northerners, we couldn't help feeling a little at a loss for words about the terror and pain that African Americans and many other ethnic peoples endured right on these streets and elsewhere throughout this country. Yet, in this comfortable little bbq cafe, we were welcomed and served with such warmth and joy by people who had lived it all. We met Rev. Gwendolyn C. Webb in there. She told us a little about her experiences as a foot soldier in 1963. it was a privilege to talk to her. Our food was terrific. I tried the rib tips plate with some beans and potato salad. The sauce on the tips was delicious and the tips were very tender. We also tried the fried fish plate with coleslaw, etc. Nice breaded fish that melted in your mouth. If we lived nearby, we would be frequent visitors. Owner was a great guy and truly cared about us having a good meal.
