Friday Five: {1}

My very first Friday Five!  Woohoo!  Today I am linking up with Joy.  Be sure to check out her amazing blog!
Tomorrow I am helping my sister move back to Tuscaloosa for the fall semester.  In honor of getting to visit my favorite city, I am going to share with you my top 5 restaurants in Tuscaloosa.  It was extremely difficult for me to narrow the list to just 5.  I lived in Tuscaloosa for 4 years and fell in love with so many restaurants.  There are days when all I want to eat is a sandwich from Newk's or sushi from Bento.  So after much deliberation, here is my list of the 5 best restaurants in Tuscaloosa and my favorite items on the menu.
1. Newk's - A deli that serves sandwiches, soups, salads and pizza.  I always order either the Five Cheese Pizza (it has a pesto base!) or the Club Sandwich.  Both are excellent!

 2. Bento - Japanese restaurant on the Strip (University Boulevard).  I love their Teriyaki Chicken Bento Box and Shrimp Tempura Roll (I'm not very adventurous when it comes to sushi).

3. Iguana Grill - Best Mexican restaurant ever!  (In my humble opinion)  I order the enchiladas everytime.

4. Mugshots - Amazing burgers!  The Pat-O is the way to go.  Lots of melty cheese!

5. Cypress Inn - A nicer restaurant on Black Warrior River with great food and beautiful views.  All of their food is yummy.  I usually get the grilled chicken.

Be sure to check out these awesome restaurants if you ever find yourself in Tuscaloosa!  Happy Friday!
