Montgomery has a fun and fascinating assortment of restaurants dating back more than two hundred years. Some landmark dining establishments, like Fleming’s, are gone, but others, like Chris’ Hot Dogs, are still serving their signature dishes. Such notable figures as Hank Williams, Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald, Elvis, Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. have all enjoyed delicious meals in Montgomery. Traditional favorites such as Pop’s “Shake Ice,” the Parkmore’s Chicken in a Basket and the Elite’s Trout Almondine now take their place alongside new offerings like Chef Eric Rivera’s “Blended Burger.” Local authors Karren Pell and Carole King reveal the culinary treats and the colorful personalities behind the best restaurants in the city.

This is Carole King and Karren Pell’s first book for The History Press. Their previous three for Arcadia Publishing—Montgomery’s Historic Neighborhood, Montgomery Then and Now and Modern Images Montgomery—remain popular. Carole has been the historic properties curator for Landmarks Foundation, managing the collection at Old Alabama Town in Montgomery for thirty years. Karren’s bi-monthly live show, The Old Alabama Town Revue, features original songs, and an original monologue called Planet Karren is in its twelfth season. Carole and Karren hope that current residents of Montgomery enjoy learning about their history and that the books also inspire increased interest and investment in historic properties.
