Tuscaloosa, Alabama is one of the great football cities in the country.  The home of the University of Alabama Crimson Tide, Saturday's are special around here.

There is no doubt, everyone should experience watching a game at Bryant-Denny Stadium.  Another experience any Alabama fan should try is watching a game at one of the many restaurants and bars around Tuscaloosa.  You'll find unique character, lots of crimson and die-hard Tide fans!  The options range from being close to the stadium on The Strip, or nearby downtown or around the area.

I've compiled a list featuring a variety of 7 places to watch Alabama football in Tuscaloosa!  The list mostly comprised of sports themed establishments.  There are so many other places normally not about sports, but when it's Alabama football they focus on appealing to fans.  So, with that in mind, I believe this is a solid starter list of must try locations.  Take a look and feel free to drop a comment.

And... Roll Tide!!

  • Houndstooth

    An iconic sports bar with a large patio area, which leads to being one of the best spots for people watching on The Strip before and after the game. There are plenty of TV’s and BBQ on the smoker. BBQ nachos with jalapenos are a specialty during home game Saturdays!
