The protein and veggies and rice bowls are a tasty blend of flavors and the burgers are fresh and juicy. The help is always friendly and can make recognized mendatio s for first timers.

This is my favorite restaurant in Tuscaloosa. The food is delicious, inventive, fun, and really unfussy. Actually, that's a good description of the restaurant as a whole. I've never had a disappointing meal here. It's relatively unpretentious (never tips over into hipster parody, mostly because...More

Animal Butter offers a welcome change from the informal dining/fast food offerings in Tuscaloosa. We got two orders of tacos, one al pastor pork and one slow-cooked beef. Since there were two tacos in each order, each of us had one of each type. Both...More

An unusual and delicious menu: After loving a chicken sandwich and fries here on Tuesday at a reasonable $8, I returned on Friday to try the varied tacos. Decided on the Al Pastor and it was savory with a tasty pineapple verde salsa. Got full...More
