As the capital city of Alabama, Montgomery is home to many terrific restaurants that serve up some of the best foods in the state. If you're feeling up to a slightly messy but delicious feast, try some barbecue. Cooked slowly over an open pit, the Memphis style dry rubbed ribs is an excellent choice, and it's served with sides such as house crafted baked beans and fries. For something a little more low-country, grab a bowl of Southern shrimp and grits, which is a bowl filled with Gulf shrimp, smooth popcorn grits, crispy country ham, crispy red onions, and red dragon beurre blanc. For dessert, treat yourself and indulge in a delightful, made-from-scratch cupcake. There are so many flavors to choose from, such as apple pie, Italian creme, and lemon cheesecake.
