About

Located on First Avenue North in downtown Irondale, Irondale Café,the original WhistleStop Café, has been serving traditional Southern food at the same location for years. The cafe is a traditional Southern restaurant where the customers order their food cafeteria-style, then carry the tray to a seat. The cafe became famous to the rest of the world when it was the setting for the book and film Fried Green Tomatoes.Though judging from its large and loyal clientele, it became famous in Irondale many years before that for its quality and consistency—and cornbread rolls!

The food is good but they have cut down on the portion size, I’m disappointed to say. My beef tips and rice were half what I’ve gotten before. And, my yellow squash portion was equally small. We know food costs are important, but underserving is unacceptable and leads to unhappy customers. There is a new lady serving these smaller plates.

I do not recommend it. Food portion is to small. They put it in a sealed plastic carry out dish and close it even if you tell them it's for dine in.. Service was non existent...

I just picked up a plate to go...one meat, 2 vegetables and a dessert. Was a little over $17! The cabbage taste awful can’t even eat it! The corn is good and the chicken livers are ok. I won’t be going back. Why have they’re prices gone up so much?
