I'm unfamiliar with Byron's. If it's still there, I missed it completely, but I will try to look for it next time on the Plains. (Less than a month away - wahoo!)

Though it's not strictly a local restaurant, my favorite in Auburn is the Mellow 'Shroom. They never cease to amaze me in their capacity to consistantly produce perfect pizzas. There's a nicer, newer one in Montgomery, and I've heard Tuscaloosa has a large 'Shroom, but I think the cramped atmosphere at Auburn's Shroom actually helps.

In terms of strictly local eateries, I recommend Momma Goldberg's; don't judge the sandwich by the shack. And Provino's, just past the mall, is an excellent, albeit expensive, ristorante italiano.

The rumor about the Auburn Milo's appears to be true. I actually talked to the manager when I found out it was closing. He said that he wanted to offer chicken fingers (which Milo's offered anyway in a year or so), but the neon signs tell a different story. He wanted to sell beer, the Milo's franchiseers refused, and he walked out on the franchise...

...to his detriment. Fact is, hardly anyone gets that close to campus after hours to procure alcohol; those who do already have Momma G's, Rooster's, and the Blue Room. I refused to eat at the new place (in protest!) but its reputation was, simply, mediocre food in an atmosphere not conducive to beer-drinking. It was no Milo's. It didn't have the sauce, didn't get the customers, didn't pay the rent.

The REALLY sad thing is, last time I noticed (mid-June), the place is STILL empty. The rent must be outrageous. I would love to see Milo's return to the same spot, but my roommate and I know what would do even better:

Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme.

There's very little real competition in all of Auburn. It would be right next to the Auburn ENGINEERS, and it could profit from school-day mornings, late-night engineering projects, conference catering, sorority fundraising, and tailgating.

If only we ran the world...


Yeah, I haven't seen a Denny's in the South for years. My theory is that, like Shoney's, they couldn't compete with the two giants of Southern breakfasts:

Cracker Barrel for "fancy cookin'." Waffle House for cheap and fast.


And McGuire's is fricking awesome. I kid you not.

A friend of mine (who attended Auburn, actually) recently opened a Mellow Mushroom here in Birmingham; my wife and I dined there Saturday night (very good pizza indeed). But it is more wide-open inside and not as "intimate" as the one in Auburn. The one in Tuuscaloosa is a cool location: Downtown, at the end of University Boulevard in a historic, 2-story converted building, it has outdoor balcony seating over the sidewalks and great views all around.

Either of those would be perfect, as would a Krystal, because they would keep drunk students from DUI'ing off campus to Opelika for late might munchies. The same goes for the old Krystal location in Tuscaloosa - right in the middle of The Strip, between Fraternity Row and the bars, on "the walk home." Now Krystal and Waffle House are 5 miles away on McFarland Boulevard, and a popular place for cops to target DUIs.

And both pleasing in their own way, although the local Waffle Houses have recently switched to the more limited menu that the Florida locations use. They will still take special orders for old favorites though.

Good Lord.

During a recent road trip to Atlanta, I ended up dining at Waffle House thrice in one day. It was very traumatic.
