Maybe it's not aimed toward vegetarians, but I still had a lovely time. Our server was super sweet; they had several very tasty sounding meat options, and my husband enjoyed his chicken philly sandwich. I really need to recommend the stumphole cake! Excellent!!!!!!

Not quite as good as all the reviews. Having lived in southern Louisiana, I'd say the menu is Cajun inspired, but didn't remind me of food from LA. The fried pickles were good, the cheesecake was good, the white rice with some Cajun spices sprinkled on top was not authentic.

My wife's aunt lives on the lake in Lincoln and treated us here at Crossroad's. The service was excellent and the food didn't disappoint. I had the seafood gumbo, the cheese curds, and the "dirty" ribeye. Also had the stump hole cake which is a must try. Highly recommend this place if you're in the area.

My family met with our parents Friday 11/11 here for dinner. The service was absolutely superb. The friendly atmosphere is very welcoming. Even the owner greets his customers. Melanie was our waitress (a favorite of our parents as they're regulars) and she was very accommodating. My husband had the Tiger Tilapia (with Mahi Mahi instead), my mother had the hamburger...

Sally was our waitress. She is one of the nicest most outgoing people I've ever met. The food is to die for. Tried the catfish for my very first time and it was delicious. My brother had a special dish called Bayou Lulu and I had the Maui Maui. Everything was awesome including the drinks. As an added bonus, we... More

Talladega Alabama is known to be the location of the biggest, baddest track in Nascar. However, there are some AMAZING restaurants in the Talladega area. One of these is Rick's Crossroads Grille. Their motto is "Cajun and then some!" We started off with Boudin Balls and Seafood Gumbo - Both on the appetizer menu. The gumbo was the best I've... More

It truly doesn't get any better than this! Perfectly seasoned slabs of the tenderest slow cooked prime rib are served Thursday-Saturday at Ricks. Fried green tomatoes, garlic mashed potatoes & fried okra are a few of the tasty sides available. Come hungry!
