We were in quarantine for a little over a year. Now, people are ready to get out of the house and have some fun. One of the first major events in Tuscaloosa was the Druid City Arts Festival. Seeing all of the smiling faces and families was a feeling I've missed.

You could tell people were extra happy just to be out and about. The kids running around, the dogs even looked happy to see other dogs! Lol!

One of my favorite parts about being out was getting to try food from new places around Tuscaloosa. I finally got to try food from the Big Tasty food truck and it was as good as I anticipated!

Now that summer is approaching, I want to go out and grab a bite at a few local restaurants. I'm not completely ready to be in a packed restaurant yet, so I want to make sure I can eat outside. Pretty much on a patio. Catch some fresh air, enjoy being outside and enjoy a good meal.

I decided to make a list of restaurants I can't wait to go to once the summer hits. I could call this list many things, but how about I just call it, "My Summer Hitlist of Tuscaloosa Restaurants." Places I want to go to that all have outdoor seating.

Southern Ale House has outdoor seating and great food. Check out these burgers! 

Blaze Pizza is one of Tuscaloosa's gems. They even have vegan pizza. 

Black Warrior Brewing Co. has great brews and outdoor seating. Two great combinations. 

Twelve 25 is a newcomer to The Strip. The word is their food and drinks are awesome


In the mood for Mexican food? Los Tarascos is perfect! 

Head over to Buffalo Phils for great outdoor seating and good food.


Who doesn't love Taco Mama?! Definitely a T-Town favorite. 


Grabbing a bite from Urban Cookhouse? Your body will thank you.
