Birmingham, Alabama - Five points area

Hi all,

A few friends of mine are going down to Birmingham, AL on Jan 1-3 for watch the bowl game. They're looking for a good time with good food. They're real simple and prefer more casual places than fancier, expensive places. Oh and BBQ is a must.

They're staying in the five points area at the Residence Inn at UAB. However, they will NOT have a car. So anything within walking distance or a short (10-15 min) cab ride would really help.

I've searched this board and found the following:

Dreamland for BBQ
Jim & Nick's for BBQ
Bottega Cafe for Italian
Cosmos for pizza
26 for seafood
New Chinatown for Chinese
Original Pancake House for breakfast
ZaZa Trattoria for breakfast

For bars with food:
J Clyde's
Dave's Pub

If anyone has any suggestions or comments about the above places, please do! I would really appreciate any help!

Oh and any place to grab something quick like burgers, hot dogs, or the like would be very helpful as well.

Thank you all in advance!
