Enjoy the flavors and exotic spices of South Vietnam at Saigon Noodle House. The full-service restaurant dedicated to healthy and hearty dishes like spring rolls and pho noodle soups is a Birmingham favorite.

Fancy’s on 5th is an oyster bar and burger joint in the heart of Avondale. With no intentions of anything fancy, this restaurant sets out to serve the best of the best to all walks of life.

Is there anything more satisfying than the familiar taste of a grilled cheese and tomato soup? We love the nostalgia of that simple dish, but we really love the way MELT puts their own spin on the classic. You’ll find an expansive list of different grilled cheese options as well as delicious cheesy starters, side items that perfectly pair and a dessert menu that will wow!
430 41st Street South, Suite B, Birmingham, AL 35222
Hours: Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to midnight; Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 1 a.m.
This hot dog shop in Avondale is anything but ordinary. Serving creative takes on the American favorite, including vegetarian (!!) dogs, Hot Diggity Dogs’ inventive menu and fun branding makes it a must visit in Birmingham.
