Hen House Burrito at Roosters Latin American Food

“Roosters is a fan favorite in Mobile, and they now have a new fan in me after eating their Hen House Burrito. Burritos are usually too heavy for me, but the roasted chicken and Spanish rice, along with chipotle cream, was the perfect mix. If you are looking for fresh and fast tacos or burritos in downtown Mobile, this is your stop!” – Tyler FlowersAttorney, Cunningham Bounds, LLC
Roosters Latin American Food • 211 Dauphin St. • 375-1076

Ferus Summer Salad at Ferus by the Bay

“The Ferus Summer Salad topped with seared chicken was a perfect lunch for these still-hot days. Strawberries and goat cheese with the tang of pickled red onions, sherry vinaigrette and balsamic glaze made for a delicious combination. I wish this salad was on the menu year-round. The cool vibe of an updated historical building in downtown Fairhope made it a great spot to enjoy time with friends!” – Molly Spain, President, Baldwin County Trailblazers
Ferus by the Bay • 51 S Church St., Fairhope • 928-9014

Braised Short Rib Ravioli at Buster’s Brick Oven

“This downtown Daphne eatery is known for its brick oven pizza, but it was this delectable starter that had my wife and I wanting more. With a perfect balance of rosemary marsala cream, parmesan-drizzled pasta and the complement of mushrooms to the short rib, this ravioli and I will undoubtedly be friends for years to come.” – Philip MartinTheology teacher, St. Michael Catholic High School
Buster’s Brick Oven • 1715 Main St. 4495, Daphne • 264-2520

Shrimp and Grits at The Noble South

“If you’re looking for a new twist on an old Southern dish, order the shrimp and grits from the Noble South. Chef Rainoseck combines creamy yellow grits and bacon topped with large fresh gulf shrimp. All of this is swimming in tomato broth that has the perfect kick, with a poached egg and sprinkling of chives in the middle. Just order it. You can thank me later.” – Linda JensenJuvenile Court Referee, Mobile County
The Noble South • 203 Dauphin St. • 690-6824
