A T Town Favorite

Despite the huge crowd on game day, the service was terrific, the food was pretty good and the beer was ice cold. I really like the selection of Alabama beers on tap and the staff was outstanding!

We came here following a tour of the U. Of Alabama, we ordered the lunch wings special and a chicken nacho. The nacho was so drenched in cheese that any other taste was obliterated. The wings (hot, buffalo) had a great taste, but we're literally the smallest wings I have ever seen served. Ten of them equalled five at BWW... More

Buffalo Phil's is a good bar/restaurant option on the "strip" of Alabama's campus - beer is cold but not one of my top joints when it comes to food. Food is decent. Salad was fair and grilled chicken was okay. Plenty of fried options that we stayed away from- typical bar options. Prices are very reasonable.

This is one of the closest restaurants to the stadium. Very good wings, might have said excellent if they weren't so tiny. I like wings on the smaller side, but these are too small. Really enjoyed the loaded nachos on homemade potato chips, very different and tasty. Great prompt attentive service, a very tasty Bloody Mary as well. Definitely would... More

Buffalo Phil's is located right near/on The Strip and has a great lively atmosphere with lots of college students. They have your typical bar/restaurant foods of burgers, wings, etc. I enjoyed their wings, they had delicious tea, and best of all was their Buffalo Chicken Dip!! Service was really good too. I really liked this place and would definitely recommend... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who's sons are Bama students. I was taking my son to visit the school and we were looking for a place to have dinner. We both had amazing burgers and also really good curly fries. Service was really fast and we had a great waiter.

Burgers – off the hook – tasty, huge – sides – fries or tots – way too much – coleslaw – delicious. Service was quick and very friendly. Younger son had the cheese steak, said it was average. This was our 2nd visit (from San Francisco, visiting son). 1st time had the deep fried bacon Cheese burger - amazing!

Love the taste and service at this place. Quick and friendly, outstanding college atmosphere. Just wish they bought higher quality wings, super small. Couldn't find them in the supermarket if you tried.
