We recently tried another new to us place. It is in Vestavia Hills off of Rocky Ridge Road. It is called The Ridge Eat & Drink. It had been on our to try list at some point, but we had taken it off for one reason or another. Yes we have a running list of places to try and places we have tried. Ask us to share if you are interested.
This day we were in the Highway 280 area and turned to Yelp for suggestions as usual. We are glad we took this suggestion. The food was good. I had the Rebel Yell burger. I did a single patty and boy was I glad. It had bacon, a fried egg, cheddar and jack cheese, lettuce, tomato slice and was topped with an onion ring. The burger was so big there was no way to eat it by hand. I ended up basically taking it all apart and eating it in pieces. I removed the onion ring and ate it by itself. I also took off the lettuce and tomato to get it to a manageable size that I was able to eat. It was messy with the fried egg, but really good. I got a side of sweet potato fries. Jeff had the Jam Gouda burger with a side of cheese grits.
We found that this is a sister restaurant of Soho Social, Mudtown Eat & Drive and Soho Standard. The only one of those we haven’t been to is Soho Standard.
If you are in the Rocky Ridge area of Vestavia Hills we recommend that you check them out.
