In a small town sometimes the lack of competition doesn't always push restaurants to do their best. This restaurant stands out amongst the crowd. The grilled jerk chicken sandwiches are Outstanding! The fried green tomatoes are great. My wife had the grilled chicken with the Parmesan garlic roasted potatoes. Awesome! Great venue and great restaurant. I would recommend larger glasses.... More

The Tav has always been the best place in Montevallo for food and the only thing that made the dining experience better is when they moved. The new location is big and open with lots of windows. It feels very inviting and comfortable. Same great staff, same amazing food, just at an even better location. They have two parking lots... More

If you want something unique and tasty I recommend the Fried Green Tomato BLT! And for an even better kick, have them add pimento cheese!

While they have moved just down the street from the original location, they now offer more parking (still not enough on some nights, lol) and bigger dining area; they still offer great food and service.

Their location has changed. No longer located on Main. Tried burgers and fried pickles. Pickles were our favorite. Burgers were ok but nothing really special. Great location near the university though.

They have moved down the same street but into a bigger place with lots more parking. The menu is about the same, pretty good and pretty good prices but it's much busier now. Almost always at lunch or dinner you see a pretty full parking lot. Not sure of the entertainment because I'm never there that late. If you want... More

After hiking in Montevallo we were needing to refuel and I am so glad we found this place for dinner! Wonderful staff and the food is delicious!! The food portions are ginormous so make sure you are ready to eat! Pleasant surprise - can't wait to come back!
