Birmingham-suggestion-Five Points

hlsess Nov 19, 2010 02:30 PM

I have friends coming in town this weekend- they want to go to 5 Points and eat- they have a 12 year old girl who eats anything. They are from Jackson, MS. I amnot sure what type food but thought that ya'll could give me suggestions-I don't go to 5 points vry often-I love the Pita Stop but wondered what else you could suggest-I am thinking a good variety of foods- also thought about RoJo

    I really enjoy 26. They have a really nice variety of items, and a very cool atmosphere.

      I like 26 but they do not fall in the under-20 price range anymore. Their prices have seen some serious creep in the last two years. We tried to go Friday before last and there was a 1 hr+ wait at 7:15 PM (yes, prime time but still).

      Well, not Rojo, 'cause that's not really in the Five Points area. Not far though, and definitely good.

      Always Stitt-first :-) - Chez Fon Fon or Bottega Cafe.

      Surin is boring but solid Thai (sorta) and sushi
      Sitar is great Indian is a couple blocks north at University; I still like Taj India, too no matter what anyone else says, but Sitar is better

          Surin isn't bad. If they are into Thai or sushi, that would also fall into that price range....

        Do you have a particular price range?
