This is one of my absolute favorite places to go in the Birmingham area. In my experience, this location (southside, near 5pts) is by far the best one. The staff is friendly, clean, and helpful. LOVE their gyros, sides, and that *amazing* mint tea. The burgers are among the best, and all of the meals I have tried were good and filling sizes (no meager portions that will leave you wanting more. They also stay open super late (I think they may be open 24 hours?).The baklava is a bit less crispy than I prefer, but everything else that I have had on their menu has always been fantastic.I would give it a 4 and 1/2 if that were an option (only missing out on the 5 because of the mediocre baklava and the 'only okay' condition of the bathrooms). But as far as the food itself, I have only had good experiences (and I have gone here regularly for at least 8+ years). This place was a staple for nearly every b'ham trip I made long before I moved to the area. Everyone I have brought here has left with a new favorite place to eat. The prices are very reasonable, especially for the quality. You can see the food prep area (which I really like being privy to). There is a covered patio dining area for the smokers, as well as inside dining. It's my absolute "go-to" for the post-bar night/late night out, etc. I honestly made a profile on this site *just* to post a review for this place, and for me to do that is really saying something.
This is one of the best Chinese seafood buffet in Birmingham. StaffThe staffs there are really nice and kind, and clear the plate off the table really fast. I eat a lot that day but never see the plate pill up.FoodThey have variety of seafood there, including oyster, snow crab leg, shrimp, etc IT ALL taste FRESH and DELICIOUS. Unlike many other buffet here, it taste like really seafood!!! I was really impressed with it, especially the crab legs.Hibachi YES, they have a hibachi grill, they some time have fresh grilled stakes, and you can always prepare raw foods that u want and give it to them, they will cook it for you. SushiI have try so many sushi in different buffet, and to be honest they tasted really bad, and the rice are all hard, BUT here in A-star the sushi actually taste pretty good. the sushi rice are soft and tasty. IT ACTUALLY FRESH
So much fun! A great venue for a concert. My husband and I saw Fitz and the Tantrums and loved the balcony area more than the floor. There are a few seats in the balcony and wall seating. The sound was awesome. Get there early enough to order dinner and drinks.
GREAT RESTAURANT! Waiter was one of the best waiters I have ever had - very conversational but not overwhelming - very aware of what we needed. Food was AMAZING! :) I have also gotten takeout from them - just as good! All the staff is helpful & polite!
I only visit when I'm in town on business I make a point to visit Linette,she remembers my name even what I drink and my favorite menu item. She's an awesome bartender. Friendly polite and she makes me feel right at home. See ya'll soon.
My friend and I have been going to this restaurant for several years now. I've never had any problem with the food or the service. It's our go to place when we get to meet and hang out since we live on opposite sides of B'ham. Love the BBQ!
The food is pretty good, the wait time is ridiculous, but for a decent burger, I can wait 15 min. Its rare to get chicken and waffles and fish tacos at the same time. Everything is fresh and not like a processed mess like McDonalds.
Bam closes at 9 pm on Saturday. There is a Final Four game going on and they are closing. C'mon, either you are a sports bar or you aren't. Don't go into business half way guys!
I have been to many Jacks and this one by far is the best. They have some of the friendliest people and the food is always good. I recommend this jacks over any other.
Hey I went there just to purchase my Mom dinner and that lady is hard to please but she loved the food!! Magic Grill you are ok with me! You Rock!!!
