Great places to eat between Montgomery, AL and Destin, FL?

SparklesPlenty | May 14, 201108:08 PM     4

My husband and I will be driving to Destin, FL in a couple weeks. We live in Nashville and used to live in Birmingham but have never been farther south than that. We are planning on traveling Highway 331 from Montgomery to Destin and would love any suggestions on places to eat along the way. Ideally we'd like to find a hidden gem that's off the beaten path (we're not on a very tight schedule and don't mind driving a few miles here or there) that serves food that really defines the area.

My husband, an Australian who will eat virtually anything, just wants to experience the True American South. I am a bit more picky, and am rather skittish when it comes to meat and 3's (I know... I'm living in the wrong part of the country) because everything seems overcooked and mushy to me. But I'm willing to give somewhere a shot if you guys tell me it's worth it. We'd love to find somewhere that captures the true flavor of the South, both literally and figuratively. With your recommendations, dives/holes in the wall are A-Ok with us. :)
