This is not a fancy place, but what they do, they do excellently. I had the fried catfish, collard greens, and fried okra. Everything was stupendous, and I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in Tuscaloosa

I discovered TTown Cafe after Maggie's Diner closed and have been eating here ever since. Every day there are at least 10 veggies. Their grilled chicken tenderloins are the bomb and even their fish isn't fishy.
