This place is listed on the "Top 100 Dishes to Eat Before You Die". That's SOME motivation.
So that we'd both get this scratched off of the bucket list, I took my mother. We had a fantastic time being able to experience Irondale, Alabama history.
Top 100 Dishes to Eat
Atmosphere: Down home, back to basics, quaint, comfortable. The outside appearance indicates that the entire strip apparently used to be a train stop. Especially given the train tracks right out front.
This is a place to take your entire family for a great home style sit down meal.
The Staff: Very friendly, fast and ready to make sure that you have every thing you need in order to have an enjoyable meal/ experience.
What I/We Had: We both had the fried chicken, Cabbage, their INFAMOUS, world renown fried green tomatoes, melt in your mouth cornbread (HOLY MOLY!).
I was bad and had slice of cookie's 'n cream pie.
Price: A meat and 2 without the sinful dessert would run you about $7.39 per person.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I rate the Irondale (Whistle Stop) Cafe' a rating of 9.
