Have changed menu décor so I was a little thrown off, but food was as delicious as ever. Everything is always fresh and the right temperature; most dressings come on the side, so you can use as much or as little as you desire. Sweet Tea is best in this area!

– I was on a recent motorcycle trip and was visiting my daughter in Birmingham for a few days. We were heading downtown for an event at UAB and went to Newks for supper before the event. It was a different semi-fast food type of restaurant. My daughter had to kind of help me through the system to order, which... More

Newk's Eatery offers yummy food. Their bakery is very nicely prepared and tastes awesome. We enjoy visiting the eatery during the lunch hours. It is located around the university complex.

Our family has enjoyed eating at various Newk's locations for years. I have also been to several conferences in Birmingham where Newk's has catered the lunch. Their boxed lunches with sandwiches, pasta, fruit and brownies are great. On this night, we were in a hurry to make a play. The staff was friendly and quickly opened a third register to... More

Newk's has a great variety of choices of either pre-made salads and sandwiches for grab and go or if you want to wait you can have a freshly prepared salad, sandwich or pizza. I waited and had a greek salad made fresh. It was so large that I couldn't finish it. It speaks volumes that the place was mobbed at... More

The pesto chicken sandwich is great. I get the garlic, balsamic, cheese and breadsticks to-go from the little station in the middle. That sandwich dipped in the balsamic is legendary. The Caesar salad with the extra cheese...the perfect complement to the sandwich. The Five Cheese and the BBQ chicken pizzas are my favorite. They are personal size. The only bad... More

First, let me tell everyone that this place stays busy at lunch on weekdays. With its proximity to the hospital and other businesses, it can't help but be busy. But the staff does an amazing job of getting orders taken quickly, getting food prepared quickly and making as positive an experience as possible. On our recent visit, I had the... More

The restaurant is near the UAB complex and very busy during lunch. However, the service and the food are good are worth the price paid. The restaurant is in walking distance of the UAB complex.
