#5 - Carmelo Cafe - A fairly recent addition to the Tuscaloosa Scene in Temerson Square, Carmelo Cafe is Southern Style food with an upscale flair. Carmelo Cafe is a delight for anyone looking to find somrthing different than the typical fare in Tuscaloosa.
#4 - Rama Jama's - Not exactly a hidden gem, located in the shadow of Bryant-Denny Stadium, Rama Jama's makes up for the lack of points in the hidden category with an over abundance of points in the "unique to Tuscaloosa" category with their classic American food.
#3 - Summer Snow - Destroyed in the April 27, 2011 storm, Summer Snow is back for this summer and ready to serve you what people say is the best shaved ice in Tuscaloosa, located on Univ. Blvd in Alberta City.
#2 - City Cafe - From the quaintness of Downtown Northport to the food that simply feels like home, City Cafe is an institution. Ask any UA Student where their favorite place to eat is, and they'll almost always include City Cafe on the list.
#1 - Nick's in the Sticks - The most hidden of our hidden gems, Nick's in the Sticks is located at 4018 Culver Rd in Tuscaloosa. They've been serving steaks and potatoes for as long as anybody can remember. Simple stuff, done right. What's more Tuscaloosa than that?
