Business History

Serving the Cottondale, AL Community Since 1947 Try a taste of traditional southern cooking at Southland Restaurant Southland Restaurant originally opened more than 50 years ago, operating as a drive-in restaurant with curbside service. Teenagers and families would flock to our little eatery after attending a drive-in movie right across the street for a burger and a shake. When the drive-in movie theater closed down in 1964, we knew we had to evolve, and the restaurant was remodeled and enlarged by our new owners. Southland quickly became the most famous eatery in the Tuscaloosa area thanks to our legendary hamburger steaks!

    Great food, great people, great prices. Come twice a week or twice a day if you want and get a variety. You will not regret it! Hamburger steak is the best.
