Urban Cookhouse is absolutely, positively one of the most under the radar gems here in Birmingham. When I first began my freshman year at Samford University, I ate at Urban Cookhouse with a group of girls that lived on my hall. I don’t know what it was, but I really was not a huge fan. It felt overpriced and I felt like I could make everything it had to offer in my own kitchen. So what’s the point?
Well, as the years continued, I occasionally dined here and felt very mediocre about its menu items, but one day I decided that Urban Cookhouse really is a hidden treasure with some of the freshest food. I needed to appreciate it more! The food items may seem simple and homemade, but it’s because they are! What a treat! Life is busy. Literally always. Urban Cookhouse is quick, reasonably priced and extremely wholesome! It’s a perfect place to grab a quick bite with a girlfriend, which is exactly what I did today.
My friend Taylor and I went to the Summit location around 12:00, prime lunch hour. We were expecting it to be slammed and to take forever. All the workers on staff today were attentive and had everything out in a very timely manner. They staff takes amazing care of you. We had three people check in on us in the 40 minutes we were there. It feels like you’re dining in a 5-star steakhouse! Next time you’re wanting a quick, yet healthy and delicious lunch (or any meal for that matter), try Urban Cookhouse!
