In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Huntsville, Alabama Has a ‘Booming’ Food Scene

This Southern gem is quickly getting a great reputation for its food.

Huntsville, Alabama is known nationally for its connection to the U.S. Space program.  But “The Rocket City” might soon need a new moniker thanks to its burgeoning food scene.

From soul food and barbecue to five-star dining, this thriving community has seen a great deal of transplant residents bring their own personal tastes and cuisines with them to the city, resulting in a diverse dining environment.  Atlanta?  New York?  San Francisco?  All represented.

Restaurant Week is a 10-day celebration of this community and its amazing restaurants.  During this event, local establishments provide some of their special dishes at fixed rates, which showcase their unique flavors and encourage visitors and locals alike to explore the delectable side of the Rocket City.
