Even if you aren’t familiar with Birmingham Restaurant Week, you probably know how many great food spots are in Birmingham. Whether you’re craving a refreshing cocktail or you want a savory bite to eat, there are so many options that The Magic City may as well be dubbed The Foodie City.

Birmingham Restaurant Week is an 18-day celebration of local restaurants. There will be options for whatever you’re craving in a range of budgets and neighborhoods.

Here’s how it works: participating restaurants will have special two, three and/or four-course breakfast, lunch and/or dinner menus at a prix-fixe price. Translation: BRW menus will have set prices from $5 to $50 per person, and you’ll get to try at least two or more courses at each location!

Here are the tasty deets:

  • Thursday, Aug. 12—Sunday, Aug. 29
  • 60+ restaurants & food trucks
  • Breakfast, lunch & dinner menus ranging from $5-$50
