“I always stop here when passing through Birmingham.”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

An old peanut shop on an old brick road. They have been selling peanuts for over 100 years. Neat little stop, $5 lbs. They also sell T-shrits and burlap sacks.

“Lots of history in a small space”
Reviewed April 16, 2012

So it was a lot smaller than I thought but kind of cool that this place still has some of the original equipment from over 100 years ago and still in use to roast peanuts. A little disappointed that they import their roasting peanuts from Virginia instead of being local but it makes sense since Alabama peanuts are better for peanut butter. Definitely buy a bag after your brief tour and you won't be disappointed. I had the cajun roasted and they were yummy!

“This will take you back to your childhood days”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

You'll love the Peanut Depot especially if you like "old school." This is a must-see stop if only to admire the magnificent old machinery while the kids feed the pigeons along the cobblestone street outside the front door. I'm from N.J. and they had a peanut roaster in there that was built in Vineland, NJ; what a thrill it was to see that. They sell bags of peanuts by the pound. We bought Cajun and Salted peanuts. Mmmmmmmmm!!!

“A fun little stop”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

Old fashioned roasters peanuts roasted fresh on site. There was a line of regulars. My son who is 7 found it super cool to see and even better to eat the hot peanuts.
You'll only spend about 30 minutes max but with street parking you literally walk across the street and walk right in. Located on a quaint brick road.

“Love the Cajun style peanuts”
Reviewed July 4, 2011

The Cajun peanuts are excellent and they make great gifts for out of towners. I buy the boiled Cajun peanuts for myself and always gift the roasted peanuts.
