  1. Chen's in Hoover is the only place I have found XLBs so far. Pretty good, not mind blowing.

    By the way, apparently Birmingham (Alabama in general) postsd go under the Central South board

    Last I checked Alabama was the Southeast, but whatever.

      Dax, I live outside of Montgomery, AL, and have lived here for some 45 years. I also have always thought I lived in the Southeast. Guess you've got to have some Atlantic Ocean in sight to be in the Southeast anymore :)
