You can set the tone for your ideal date night based on your own preferences, but here are a few of our favorite options that will get you pointed in the right direction. Just don’t forget the flowers.

Central Mesa

Located at 519 Greensboro Avenue in Tuscaloosa, Central Mesa serves creative spins on Mexican favorites. The atmosphere is fun and lively, the food delicious. Choose from classic dishes like spicy chicken tostadas and enchiladas, or spice things up with tacos featuring pork belly, carnitas, or Nashville hot chicken. Quesadillas feature tasty ingredients like spicy brisket, goat cheese, spinach, sweet peppers, and mushrooms.


With a focus on keeping thing simple and delicious, Five deals in quality ingredients, thoughtfully prepared dishes, and a commitment to perfectly prepared menu offerings – all five of them. That’s right, it’s more than a name. The Five menu features five dinner options. This streamlined approach to dining makes it easier to relax and enjoy whatever you choose – panéed chicken, for example, or a cheeseburger, Gulf Coast platter, a bone-in pork chop, or a 12-ounce ribeye – without stressing over an unnecessarily complicated menu and wondering if you made the right choice. Five is located at 2324 5th Street in Tuscaloosa.

Chuck’s Fish

It’s no surprise that Chuck’s Fish is seafood-focused. But not just any seafood will do – Chuck’s uses only fresh, local seafood straight from the Gulf. With simple preparations and quality ingredients, the fish itself shines in every application. Starters like seafood gumbo and fried green tomatoes are distinctly Southern, while the wood-oven pizzas, chicken, and steaks give you a point of departure from the sea, if your or your date prefers. You can’t go wrong with the fish of the day, the hearty cioppino, or the stuffed shrimp. You’ll find the Chuck’s Fish Tuscaloosa location at 508 Greensboro Avenue.
