Special to the Enquirer

Other semifinalists include The Chicken Shack in Luverne, Crowe’s Chicken in Brundidge, Hanceville Exxon in Hanceville, J’s Hole in the Wall in Bryant, Tenders Restaurant in Huntsville’s Five Points community, Walter’s Gas and Grill in Opelika’s Society Hill area and Wildcat Café in Guntersville.

“I am so excited to be in the Edible Eight for Best Tenders,” Bobby’s Restaurant owner and operator April Hall said. “I have been in the restaurant business for about 33 years – 28 years at my parents’ restaurant and five years at Bobby’s Restaurant. Serving our community is a labor of love, and it feels really good to be recognized for a job well done.”
