Hey, pizza lovers! Serving lunch and a late-night snack too…Mater’s has you covered! Indulge in pizzas made with love and the finest ingredients…be prepared to wait for approximately 45 minutes because your order is made fresh. Our fav is thin crust, cooked a little longer for crispy goodness :)
Yummy, freshly-butchered, grilled steaks! When you’re looking for an #OldSchool steakhouse on Friday or Saturday evening that offers you a dining experience from the 1980s, head on over to Tony's Steak Barn at Weiss Lake ~ 25 minutes from Fort Payne :) Note: We love real butter, so we take our own butter for the perfect baked potato :)
Vintage 1889, for lunch or dinner, is another Guest and Local Favorite that we love in Fort Payne, Alabama! We highly recommend the Triple Dipper Appetizer that includes Hummus, Goat Cheese Pesto and Spinach Artichoke Dip.
