Looking for somewhere new to eat? Why not try one of Huntsville’s Black-owned restaurants?
We’ve rounded up nine here, serving everything from Food Network-approved vegan eats to colorful brunches and more.
1. The Veggie
The Veggie at Lowe Mill is a Huntsville spot where you can find 100% vegan eats. Fun Fact: Chef Adyre Mason, the restaurant’s owner, appeared on an episode of Food Network’s Beat Bobby Flay earlier this year.
Try this: The Buffalo Cauliflower Salad sounds so delicious.
Address: 2211 Seminole Drive, Railroad Room 5, Huntsville, AL 35805
Hours: Wednesday-Saturday, 11AM-7PM

2. Robyn’s Garden Winery
If you’re looking for local wine, delicious eats and entertainment, you should try Robyn’s Garden Winery. You might even find your new favorite blend there.
Try this: Head to the House Band Series each Friday night to hear local musicians while you relax at the winery. Buy tickets online.
3. Porcher’s Cafe
You may know this Harvest spot by its former name, The Event Bar. At Porcher’s Cafe, you can find all-day breakfast and yummy lunch options.
Try this: The Chicken + Waffles looks amazing.
4. Superhero Chefs
Superhero Chefs officially joined Huntsville’s bustling restaurant scene in January of this year, though the food truck was already a MidCity favorite. The restaurant is owned by Darnell “Superchef” Ferguson, who you might recognize from his multiple Food Network appearances.
Try this: I’m going for the Seafood Pizza—It doesn’t sound like anything I’ve ever tried before.
Address: 930 Old Monrovia Rd NW Suite 3, Huntsville, AL 35806
Hours: Sunday-Friday 8AM-3PM

5. Hammer Heads Daiquiri Bar
Another newer addition to the Huntsville scene, Hammer Heads Daiquiri Bar has so much more than just daiquiris. Their brunch, lunch and dinner options are unlike anything else in town.
Try this: “That’s My Bestie,” a cornbread waffle with grilled shrimp, andouille sausage and a crawfish cream sauce, sounds rich and delicious.
6. Sac’s Kitchen
There’s nothing quite like soul food. Sac’s Kitchen is a family-owned spot where you’ll find some of the best in town thanks to the co-owners, a mother-son team made up of Sarah Douglas and Carlos Burwell.
Try this: Nothing compares to Chicken + Dressing. I’ll have mine with cornbread, potato salad and macaroni + cheese on the side.
7. Frankie’s Crab Shack
In the mood for seafood? Try Frankie’s Crab Shack for all the crab, shrimp and fish you can eat.
Try this: I’m going for the Maryland Blue Crab Cakes. Frankie’s also has steamed Maryland Blue Crab seasonally.
8. G’s Country Kitchen
G’s Country Kitchen promises that you’ll always get fresh, old-fashioned soul food and comfort food for a fair price—the daily lunch and dinner special is only $8.99.
Try this: Southern-style fried catfish sounds delicious. I’d probably get fried okra and collard greens on the side.
9. Chef Will the Palate
At Chef Will the Palate, you can get fresh, locally sourced ingredients and gluten-free and vegetarian options. Find the food truck at Lowe Mill.
Try this: It’s almost tomato sandwich season, and I bet Chef Will the Palate’s local heirloom tomatoes make the best tomato sandwich around.
We’re looking forward to celebrating these spots + more at Huntsville’s Black Restaurant Week this June.
