“Fresh, delicious, fabulous!”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

I love this place! While visiting Birmingham, we happened to stumble across this place and we liked it so much we that ate there both days while in Birmingham! Everything on the menu is healthy and great prices! The food is fresh, delicious, not fried, and not salty...things you rarely see in a restaurant theses days! The kids menu is super, too! You order at the counter, get a number, and the friendly staff brings your food to your table. Super fast service, outdoor seating is available! Make sure you try the orange rolls!

“A quick lunch treat”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

I like Urban Cookhouse very much. Atmosphere is not the ticket here but the food is fresh and tasty. I especially like the Local Mix salad with grilled chicken added. The homemade vinaigrette that accompanies it is excellent.

“Fresh food with casual atmosphere”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Urban Cookhouse is always a go to place for lunch/dinner. The ingredients used in the dishes made are locally grown, when possible or in season. Everything on the menu is freshly made and quickly served. I particularly enjoy the El Cubano sandwich. The only negative I have for the restaurant is the El Cubano used to come with a cup of homemade barbeque sauce on the side and now you have to pay extra for the sauce. Since the El Cubano is the most expensive sandwich on the menu, I would like to think that a cup of sauce could be considered part of the dish and come as part of the plate with no extra cost being incurred.

I have also enjoyed the half baked cookie. It takes 20 minutes to bake but is worth every minute you have to wait. A dessert definitely to be shared, it is a slightly baked chocolate chip cookie baked in a small cast iron skillet with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzled with chocolate sauce. Delicious!

Urban Cookhouse is one of my favorite eating places and one that guests enjoy also. It is nice that additional locations have opened.
