2. Bendy’s Cookies & Cream

Bendy’s Cookies & Cream is a newbie to Trussville, but you’ve likely heard of them before. The ice cream/cookie shop has been scooping up sweet treats to the Greater Birmingham Area since 2016. 

Trussville was more than ready for it, too. The grand opening on Saturday, July 16 was packed, and I couldn’t help but follow the line inside. 

Inside the creamery, you’ll find a charming space with bench seating and a handful of tables, while the outside holds several picnic tables to eat your treat. 

The main attraction—the ice cream and cookies, of course! 

Since mint chocolate chip is my favorite ice cream flavor, it was first on my must-try list, but I did steal a bite of my daughter’s Cookies & Cream. Both were delicious.

If you live in Trussville, you’ve been waiting for the opening of Rodney Scott’s BBQ for a while. Well, good things come to those who wait, because the restaurant’s grand opening is Tuesday, August 2. 

“We’re very excited to bring our motto of ‘every day is a good day’ and whole hog South Carolina barbecue to Trussville.”

Tyler Ashton, CEO, Rodney Scott

I was fortunate enough to attend the restaurant’s soft opening and not only see the brand-new space but order from the menu. 

My thoughts? The space is inviting with booths and tables, a self-serve drink area and bar. My favorite part—the disco ball that hangs from the ceiling. With the clean, white walls and excellent natural light, it gives the eatery just the right dose of sparkle.

Another bonus—Trussville’s location features a drive-thru, the FIRST in the Greater Birmingham Area. Be sure to give it a whirl.

The brewery will take over the former Slagheap Brewing Company building on Main Street. But prepare to see some serious changes soon, because co-owners, Scott Worthington and Eric Mitchell, plan to give the facility a complete overhaul.

On the menu, expect to find Hazy IPAs, fruited sours, stouts and lagers—all with Steele Hall Brewing Company’s special spin on craft classics.

Excited about the opening of Trussville Social? You should be! I got a sneak peek before it opened and it’s awesome!

It’s owned by Misty and Jeremy Reeves who are veterans to the restaurant business, having spent their lives traveling and building sports bars. After moving to Trussville, they noticed the the need for a place that combined the traditional date night of dinner with fun that can last all night long. 

The couple set to work, building their new dream right in the middle of the Trussville Entertainment District.
