Huntsville Restaurant Week

Rockets + Science + ....great food? In Huntsville, we're known for our rockets and our innovation (think: NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, the U.S. Space & Rocket CenterRedstone Arsenal, HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, building the rockets that put men on the moon, you know...the common stuff). So, we're not going to fault you for not necessarily associating the Rocket City with a great foodie destination, but we ALSO aren't going to let you get away with that assumption (because then you'd just be missing out on some amazing food and who wants that, really?).

Comfort Food

Clyde BBQ

Case in point(s). First, and this is an important one, we are located in Alabama. Which is part of the South. Which, come of the BEST things about the south is our food. Fried. BBQed. Hearty. Delicious.

Smart Flavors

Second, (as mentioned above), this is a pretty smart community. And don't just take our word for it.  Those smarts paired with a culture of innovation applied to food and dining experiences? Well, they just make for unforgettable foodie forays.

The great news? For the entire month of August (Culinary Month) in Huntsville and Madison County, we celebrate our food with the main entree being Huntsville Restaurant Week (HRW). This year, HRW takes place August 12-21 and more than 70 locally owned restaurants are getting ready to offer you amazing food and great prices. If you're anything like me and will work, beg, get overly excited for travel  for a really great food experience, I highly suggest you plan a trip to Huntsville, Alabama during Restaurant Week. If you're thinking...well what else could I do there besides eat? We can totally help with that. We got you.

In the meantime, I think you might need a little more convincing about our cred as a great food destination. Don't fret, though. Below are all the reasons you need.

It's the 10th Annual Huntsville Restaurant Week

That's right, time flies when you're having fun! Thanks to the participation of our Huntsville/Madison County restaurants, our local residents and visitors alike, we're celebrating ten years of Huntsville Restaurant Week.
