Chez Fonfon Reviews
Everything. Casual, French with a flair!
by Mary Brabston
Try the Hamburger Fonfon...best burger in Alabama!!!
by Seth T.
The Syrah served by the glass is amongst the very best I have had. Really neat place
by Jon D.
Laid back enough where it isn't stuffy feeling, but fancy enough to be somewhere you could spend a special date. Very affordable for the quality, and the Orange Thing is worth every penny.
by Zachary McAuley
Chicken paillard is excellent. Cheese plate is also worth trying as an appetizer.
by Matt S.
Get the burger, of course.

Delicious food. Fabulous service. Menu prices are not bad. $15 for an amazing burger and yummy fries. Fun music too that I haven't heard in a while...Jamiroquai and Seal! Back patio was super cute.

Love the trout with capers and potatoes! The shrimp salad remoulade is also delish!
by Emily H.
Fancy name? Well yeah. Fancy Turkey Sanswich, nope! But nevertheless delicious! Get it with Pommes Frites. That's French Fries for us common folks.
by Andi R.
Charcuterie is a great starter for 4 people. Steak frites are delicious, but Skip the chimichurri topping and ask for the maitre d butter
by Jenifer K.
While you wait, play a game of boule in the courtyard. It's the perfect way to pass the time in anticipation of a great meal.
by Alabama Year of Food
City Scene named the Hamburger Fonfon "Birmingham's Best Burger." One of the things most impressive about it is its simplicity. The beef and bun are so superior that it almost doesn't need any extras.
Charcuterie is amazing!
by Katherine B.
The best cheeseburger in town.
by Daniel M.
Get the burger and fries! They're some of my favorite in town and totally worth it!
by Jennifer H.
Chef Frank Stitt's Fonfon Burger is one of Birmingham's affordable luxuries, and it was named among "Birmingham's Best Burgers (Bar None)" by Birmingham magazine.
Try a Havana Sidecar. I ordered it so much they put it on the menu! (originally found it at Balthazar in NYC) It is mt gay rum, Cointreau and fresh sour mix served "up" in a sugared martini glass.
by Elizabeth O.
The sweet pea and asparagus tartine w farmer cheese is the best. Fresh green and lightly cheesy. Ppl like the burger too.
