#24 Tuscaloosa, Ala.

For a football-loving town like Tuscaloosa, Alabama (home to University of Alabama, of course), one of the most important features of a desirable town is ample barbecue restaurants. Which is why it’s handy to know that Archibald & Woodrow’s BBQ is king for ribs and wings and Moe’s Original Barbecue is more than worthy of mention in the same breath. Elsewhere, Chuck’s Fish is solid not just for seafood but also for pizza, and The Waysider is the spot for biscuits and gravy or any other breakfast items. For quicker fare in a retro setting, Hwy 55, Burgers, Shakes & Fries just opened up its first Tuscaloosa branch earlier this year.
