TGIF for Southern Coastal Cooking!!!

Now some might say that going to a Redneck Dive would be a bad thing BUT let me reassure you that this is SOOOOOO not the case with this Funky Junky place. When driving down Highway 59 in Foley, right in the middle of Uptown, next to Wal-greens, there it sits. Thought I would start off with the directions just so ya don't miss it. It would be a cryin shame if ya did!!!!!

Fish River Grill #2 is one of the best places to eat in Foley (the original one is located in Fairhope, AL) of course we have a lot of great eating establishments and I'm not taking anything away from any of them. It's just that to me when you walk into a place and are greeted by folks that make ya feel as though you just walked in the old family homestead for a meal, well it just goes without saying, it's the place to be.

The Fish River Grill's Hurricane Hamburger was voted the BEST in Baldwin county and we all know that there is "the best" and then as my Chazman would say, there is "the BESTEST", which this burger surely is. It's just one of the great items found at this funky junky  place. My favorite has to be the all you can eat each and every day...yes I said ALL YOU CAN EAT EVERYDAY fried catfish. Yum yum yummmmm, it's so good it might make ya slap your momma...but I wouldn't do that...she might slap ya back or ya might tell her I said to do it and she would be slapping me. (hehe)  I'm one of the true GRITS (girl raised in the South) so I know good home cooked fried catfish when I eat it. They cook it when ya order it and let's just say...with the pile they bring ya the first time, I doubt that you would be eatin a second helping but of course they will keep it coming if ya can. Not only do you get the catfish but you also get crinkle fries, fried okra, coleslaw and some of the best hushpuppies around. The grill has a special entree that comes with your meal too. It's called Swamp Soup and talk about something belly warming. It's fantastic. It comes in a small cup...HEY...ya don't want to ruin your appetite for that all you can eat fish now do ya?  The Chazman would not eat greens of any't make him...he wouldn't do it....couldn't pay him enough to even try em WELL that was until he ate the Swamp Soup ( guessed, it has greens in it and tons of other good for ya stuff)  Not only do they have the catfish all you can eat they have fried shrimp all you can eat too. So many good items on their menu...just try'll see. They have daily lunch specials too which include the swamp soup and a dessert. Just a great funky junky Redneck dive that will make anyone proud to say....I'm a redneck!!!

Oh yeah.....they have live entertainment too. We are blessed to have some very talented local artist (folks that play guitar and sing) in our area. Diana will even ask if it's to loud....she is one of the sweetest folks and she has some of the BESTEST folks working there too. Always smiling and talking and making sure that everything is just as you want it. Why in the world would someone not want to eat at Fish River Grill? Oh yeah...I'm not the only one that loves the place either....check out Urbanspoon and see what others have to say.

Until next time.....
