Dining in Auburn -- 5 Ways to Treat Your Taste Buds Right

 

Most college towns are home to every chain restaurant you can think of, but luckily, Auburn is a little different. Sure, you'll find the popular chains, but you'll also find unique restaurants that make this city one-of-a-kind. 

 

Once you have found you Auburn Apartment, here are your 5 best bets for dining in Auburn:

 

1. Enjoy the smoky goodness of Southern barbecue

There is no shortage of good barbecue in Auburn! Mike & Ed's Barbecue, located on College Street just north of the Auburn University campus, is one of the most popular restaurants in town. There's nothing fancy about it -- you'll order at the counter and get your food on a Styrofoam plate -- but the pork and the hickory barbecue sauce will melt in your mouth. This place caters so many parties on football Saturdays that it's actually closed to the general public!

If you want to enjoy your barbecue a little further from campus, head east to Opelika Road. There, you'll find Byron's Smokehouse and Country's Barbecue -- two other very popular places!

 

2. Get a jolt at a local coffeehouse

Mama Mocha's and Wake Up Coffee Company are both popular places for Auburn locals to start their day. Both offer a unique atmosphere and coffee drinks that are equally unique! And as an added benefit, if you head to Mama Mocha's, you can bring Fido along with you.

 

3. Indulge your taste buds in gourmet cuisine

Yes, Auburn is a college town, so there are plenty of budget-friendly restaurants around town. However, if you're looking for something a little more upscale, you'll have plenty of places to choose from! Whether you love Italian food, Mediterranean food, or Cajun food, you'll find tons of gourmet goodies to make your taste buds happy.

The best part? Most of Auburn's upscale restaurants are located near the University, so you won't have to drive far to enjoy a special evening!

 

4. Take a step back in time

Toomer's Drugs is an old-time soda shop, so if you're in the mood for a malt, a hand-crafted milkshake with a cherry on top, or a giant ice cream sandwich, this is the place to be! However, the most famous drink at Toomer's is the lemonade. The lemons are actually hand-squeezed at the counter right in front of you!

(While you're there, be sure to stock up on toilet paper so that you'll have plenty to throw after an Auburn football victory!)

 

5. Watch the game with a full stomach

Auburn is a sports-crazy town, so there is no shortage of sports bars here! Whether you're interested in playing pool under the big screen, having cheap beer while you watch the game, or eating unique treats that go above and beyond regular bar food, you'll have no trouble finding the perfect place.
