We have a new grocery store here in Madison! Sprouts Farmers Market officially opened their doors to the public March 18th. I had the opportunity to meet up with Caitlin (an employee of Sprouts) and she was nice enough to show me around. I have to say, I was pretty impressed!
Located at the Opry Mills Shopping Center in Nashville, TN, the Rainforest Cafe has been a favorite of our family’s since our oldest son could talk. Upon entering, you automatically feel as though you have been transported to a tropical rainforest. Huge tropical fish tanks with brightly colored fish surround the entrance.
You’ll want to study this menu before you’re put on the spot at the counter. There are over three dozen entrées on the regular menu and five weekly specials. Our only complaint? No changing tables.
I highly recommend this for a special family night out, a date night (whether it is the just the adults or a special mommy/child or daddy/child outing), or any time you want really delicious Italian food.
Mexican food in downtown Huntsville? Yes, please! Queue TACO MAMA. Pie and casserole preparations left me unwilling to cook dinner. It was a great excuse to try the new spot.
The newly opened Original Public House on South Memorial Parkway is Huntsville’s latest dining option. With an eclectic menu of traditional Irish fare infused with a Southern flair, diners are offered a variety of meal choices ranging from sandwiches ($10-12) to stews and of course fish & ships. Prices are reasonable and the menu tops […]
I am amazed at the Tennessee Valley’s apparent capacity for Mexican restaurants. Ever counted them up (or tried to)? You’d think we’d reach a saturation point sometime, wouldn’t you? With so many choices, there’s no excuse for settling. If you want Mexican food that makes you happy with no compromises, then don’t stop until you […]
Fresh. Homemade. Made from scratch. This is how the food is prepared at Sidelines Family Pub & Grub in Madison. The veggies aren’t microwaved; they’re steamed fresh. The chicken is hand cut, hand breaded and fried to order. Their mac and cheese and mashed potatoes are made from scratch and so delicious. Nothing is frozen. […]
I’ve been curious about this new place ever since I heard about it on the radio. Chicken Salad Chick originated in Auburn, but I missed my chance to try it when I was a college student. It’s been absolutely swamped since it opened, so I waited a week or so after opening day, then tried […]
My son Aaron and I took on Big Ed’s Pizzeria for you, our dear Rocket City Mom readers, last week. Big Ed’s is one of the oldest continuously operating eateries in Huntsville, serving its first slice in 1961. Now run by its namesake’s three children, it has been at its current location near the southwest […]
What’s a hotter concept right now than the premium burger joint? Burger lovers are in nirvana. Smashburger is named that because each never-frozen burger is rolled into a ball, then smashed into a patty before cooking. This is as good a shtick as any, I suppose, though if you’re OCD about your burger being perfectly […]
“What’s for lunch?” “The best sandwich in Huntsville.” Nathan had his first Kitchen Sink at the Governors Drive location of Stanlieo’s Sub Villa on Christmas Eve, 2012. We had just come from passing out parking tokens at the hospital. (It’s maybe one person in 10 who parks in a hospital garage and isn’t having a […]
