This is a great locally owned and operated restaurant. There is a good selection of hot and cold sandwiches, along with the side dishes. They make the best chicken salad. Homemade desserts daily.

Our Place has the best food in Gardendale! It is always packed at lunch and there's a reason! The staff is amazing, the food is delicious and service is so quick. I'd eat there every day if I could!

Our Place has the best chicken salad you will ever eat. The Greek salad is also delicious. Evelyn's Special is also a favorite. I will stop at Our Place at least once a week. The owners are friendly and their staff brings your order quickly. The chili is really good on a cold day with a grilled cheese, but if... More

Confused really ought to stay home or get their head examined! Our Place is small, yes, and yes, it is usually packed during peak lunch hours... There's a good reason for that - Our Place is family owned and operated unlike the corporate chain places that are all over Gardendale. It is clean, the service is friendly and fast, and... More

The Evelyn special or chicken salad sandwich is the way to go! It's actually my favorite chicken salad ever. Definitely worth the wait from the crowd. It is by far the home town favorite!

Ever had a maple doughnut with real bacon on top? What about a white icing with fruity pebbles?? How about an oreo topped one? Or a red velvet with creamcheese icing? You need to go by this place. The prices are awesome and they are always made fresh daily. One of the best doughnuts you will ever have.

We decided to stop here to have lunch since it was rated the #1 restaurant in Gardendale on Trip Advisor. The restaurant itself is so small and cramped, there is hardly room to move once a few tables are full. The sandwiches we were served were their most popular; however, we could have easily made them at home and with... More

Our place is a small family owned resturant. Would highly recommend the Evelyn's special, with a side of ranch for dipping. Everyone is family at our place!

Our Place is where locals go ... And everyone knows your name. They are known for their homemade chicken salad, but everything is good. Try the cheeseburger salad, the Evelyn's Special, or get the hamburger steak and use their homemade French dressing instead of steak sauce. It's the best!
