Mobile Planning

I'm headed to the gulf for a quick trip and have a day on my own in Mobile before we head (further) south. As a northerner (seattle), I'm hoping to try any regional specialties, unique eats, what have you. A little loop is that I'm there sunday morning until monday mid-day.

So here's my plan, based on my own research, but would love suggestions/substitutions (was bummed to miss out on brick pit and bayley's due to not being open sun/mon)

Breakfast: Time to Eat
Lunch: Queen G's
Dinner: Wintzell's

Late Breakfast: Boiling Pot
1st Lunch: Dew Drop Inn
2nd Lunch: (probably take with me in the car) Ossie's BBQ

Thanks in advance!

  1. Consider John Word's or Felix's Fish Camp on Battleship Parkway. Stop by the Battleship Alabama and visit the Museum. If you like BBQ I would visit the Brick Pit.

    Felix's Fish Camp @ 1530 Battleship Parkway, Spanish Fort, AL 251 - 626 - 6710.
    John Word's Restaurant and Jazz Cafe @ 2701 Battleship Pkwy., Mobile AL 251 - 433 - 3790.

    The best BBQ in the area is at Brick Pit. Get off I 10 at Exit 15B and go N on Highway 90 for 3 miles to Demetropolis Road. Take a left and continue on Demetropolis Road which becomes S University Boulevard. Go about 5 miles from the left you took on Demetropolis to Old Shell Road. Take a right and go to Brick Pit for outstanding BBQ.

    The Brick Pit @ 5456 Old Shell Rd., Mobile, AL 251 - 343 - 0001.

      Unfortunately, Brick pit is closed Sun/Mon, so won't be able to go there. Will check out the other suggestions!

        Original Oyster House is nice.

        Original Oyster House @ 3733 Battleship Pkwy., Mobile, AL 251 - 626 - 2188. I10/EXIT30.

    2. Thanks guys! I ended up doing these:
      -John Word's for breakfast
      -Queen G's for lunch
      -Wintzell's for dinner

      -Dew Drop Inn for Breakfast
      -Boiling Pot for lunch

      All were great, favorites was Queen G's, and I thought Boiling Pot was unremarkable...

      Will have a full blog post and link it here when I do.
