Paw Paw, Yum Yum...

This place stays packed, which is a testament to its goooood food. Though the parking lot gets crammed (there is a drive through, too), seating is easier to find inside. Food is cafeteria style; you pick what you want and it is put on your plate, then you move along with your selections until you... read more

My uncle carried us to Paw Paw's when we were in Birmingham and we were not disappointed. There was something for everybody. The food not only looked good, it tasted delicious.

Best soul food on a budget in Birmingham. I always get the roast beef, broc/cheese, and roasted red potatoes. Food service is line-style, table service for drinks is great - their sweet tea is to die for in the summer. Great place, great prices!

We went looking for a place to eat while we were here for medical. The food was fabulous. Dad had the fried chicken and I had the veggie plate. I would recommend.

Great meat and 3. I also like the Veg Plate. Regular or Jalapeno cornbread or rolls. Love the banana pudding. Always have great food and service.

I am in Birmingham a few times a year, and was looking for a down to earth mom and pop restaurant. My friends told me about Paw Paw Patch. So we went a couple of weeks ago. The building isn't any thing to talk about, but the food and friendly staff are perfect. You walk down the line and pick... More

Will love the southern cooking. It's great food and good price. Also right next door to the hotel we stayed at.

My mom picked this place on a recent trip to B'Ham. I have to admit, I was less than thrilled just by the name. As we walked in we saw lots of seniors and I thought, "Oh great...this food will be bland." I couldn't have been more wrong! I had the meatloaf and mom had the fried chicken. I'm not... More

I get tired of eating at the chain restaurants when we travel, and much prefer finding local places. My daughter and I searched for just such a place on a recent trip to Birmingham, and the name 'Paw Paw Patch' sounded interesting. Expecting maybe a small diner, we were surprised when, well after the normal lunch hour, we pulled into... More

My wife and I have been roaming Shelby County around Pelham, Alabaster, and Hoover looking for an old fashioned - and good - meat & three restaurant. Our favorite is Niki's West but it's a long stretch to north Jefferson County. The Ranch House in Vestavia Hills is very good, also. The Paw Paw Patch has been in Homewood for... More
