Mudtown Eat & Drink
Homey outpost for Southern & Cajun fare such as shrimp & grits, a bayou burger & black-bean salsa.
Naming a new restaurant is not an easy task. When trying to come up with a name for our new restaurant we came up with a list of 200+ names, and every one of them stunk. We began looking locally for inspiration. In the early 1800s, the Cahaba river banks directly east of the restaurant were inhabited by the Creek Indians. Native Americans called the area "mudtown", due to the muddy, swampy conditions caused by heavy rains. We felt the name held marketable potential, and the moniker certainly honored the Cahaba Heights' neighborhood rich in local history.
We are LOCAL, and we love it! If you're looking for a local eating establishment to support, we're it. Our latest advertising campaign claims an amazing menu. We think so. We think so, but more importantly, our guests who come to us seven days a weeks for lunch and dinner tell us that. We're proud and grateful of the praise. Judging by the response to a new menu rollout in early June, we continue to be on the right track of making people and their tastebuds happy.
Even though we named a restaurant after dirt, the food is fantastic, fresh and fun. The beverages are cold and unique. The atmosphere is inviting and comforting. As you walk in to mudtown, you will feel the prevailing friendly spirit, smell the enticing aromas from the kitchen and anticipate a quality dining experience served by people who genuinely appreciate you stopping by.
