We stopped in for dinner on our way to Birmingham for the weekend. My husband and I both ordered ribs and onion rings. The ribs were delicious and you got a lot for your money. The onion rings were awesome! I could have just eaten a plate of those and been happy. The slaw needed a little work but I didn’t waste tummy space on that anyway. The only real issue we had was the “banana pudding”. It was instant pudding, which is a joke if you are living in the south. I started offer to show them how to make it but we were in a hurry (haha). It’s a little ways off I20 but worth the stop. Our server was very nice. Hope to return again.

Heidi and I made our semi annual return to Talladega, AL for the NASCAR race. Last year, we discovered Campbell's BBQ and couldn't wait to go back. The same friendly staff as last year greeted us and we had an OUTSTANDING lunch consisting of pulled pork, fried green tomatoes, fried okra, and Mac N Cheese. I wanted their famous banana pudding for dessert but there was room. I will definitely be back and I will have the banana pudding in the fall

The food is good down home cooking. The veggies are great if you like greens and beans. The macaroni and cheese was so cheesey and yummy. My husband loved the fried catfish and my brother-in-law ordered the hamburger steak with gravy and said it was awesome. The service was great. The waitress was friendly. They need improvement on their hush puppies though. Ours were fried to long and were extremely hard. We told the waitress and they brought some more out but they were pretty much the same and didn't taste that well either.

I do recognize that this is a small town but you can't get fajitas wrong, Right? WRONG!
I went in on a Tuesday night and the place was a ghost town at 8pm. The bar is virtually nonexistent, they have a total of nine liquor to choos from. The service was worst than Taco Mac and the bartender never cleaned the counter.
The food was not tasty but the fish tacos are cheap and well done. Just save your money and drive to Oxford for real food.
This town only has fast food killers.

Grilled catfish was selected as one of the top 100 places to eat before you die. Best food in Talladega.
This small "hole in the wall" joint was great. We had the fried green tomatoes as appetizer. Lightly breaded and HOT from the fryer. Great taste.My wife had the catfish nuggets while I had the filets. The waitress was extremely helpful & offered that I could have one filet fried & the other grilled. As I've never had grilled catfish, the taste of the grilled filet surprised me. There were moderately seasoned, but not too much. To end the meal we shared the hot fudge cake. Make sure you save room, this is a treat!

AT this restuarant you get what they call salsa which looks like chili juice with a little bit of spices in it. If you want the good salsa you have to order it seperate and pay for it. The one thing that this mexican restaurants does is they will only bring you one bowl of salsa for two people or two bowls for 4 people and I don't care for is how they only bring you one little small bowl of salsa to go with your chips. They also expect you to share this with other people at your table and that is yuck. When I go out to eat and I pay for my dinner I expect me to be the only one eating it. To me salsa and chips are part of my dinner. Most of them if you ask for extra bowls or extra salsa they are nothing but rude. They give you a look like who do you think you are. Well I am the paying customer and I want what I want.

Pop the Top Soda Shop is a locally owned 1950's themed Ice Cream Parlor that specializes in various retro desserts such as hand-spun milkshakes & malts, sundaes, banana splits and old fashioned floats as well as specialty hot dogs like their quarter-pound King Dog! All sodas are sold in glass bottles or a chilled Coca-Cola glass and 50's music is played throughout!
Im not the most impatient person... but it was no less than 20 min before we were acknowledged... no not busy...total of 7 customers including us. The server kept disappearing into the back. After our order for an ice cream cone and a shake, it only too a mere 10 minutes. We just wanted a nice cold treat while traveling. , didnt want to spend an hour here. THIS PLACE NOT FOR TRAVELERS.....just for locals...
So in a nutshell, the service here sucks as bad as the air conditioner.

Ate here while staying on Logan Martin Lake. Ample boat parking, gas pump was nice to have available. Wide selection on the menu for such a small place. I ordered the fried catfish fillets and they were wonderful. Portions are bigger than expected: 1 piece is a generous half of a fish, not just a little "catfish tender"! Hushpuppies are good. Fried dill pickles are good, not greasy like some. Others had the coconut shrimp and raved about it. Hamburgers were generous in size. Service is good, prices are average, portions are generous. Would definitely eat here again when in the area.
