3 Take-Out Spreads for a Memorable Holiday Meal in Auburn, AL


The holiday season is upon us and you might be wondering what to make for this year’s feast. Whether you’re wanting to take a break from the holiday hustle and bustle or you’re really just not all that into cooking, think about calling on local Auburn restaurants to create a yummy festive spread this year. Check out some of UNCOMMON Auburn’s favorite mouth-watering spots for your holiday dinner.

How About a Sushi Spread?

We know it’s a bit unconventional, but we think anything can be made into holiday food if served with a side of spiced cider? Mikata Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar is our go-to sushi spot near town. In addition to your favorites, we suggest the Super Crunch Roll, lobster tempura, and a double order of fried rice.

Looking to Treat Yourself With a Classic Southern Meal?

Nothing warms the soul like some Southern cooking. If downhome cookin’ is what you’re craving, then The Mason Jar is where it’s at. Make sure your table has plenty of fried pickles and green tomatoes, cornbread, chicken and dumplings, and their cobbler special to finish it all off.

Why Not Mix it Up With Brunch?

If you ask us, breakfast food is the best food and that’s why we’re highlighting Amsterdam Cafe and their amazing brunch menu. Start off with a bit of greens – we suggest the apple walnut salad – and then select from their incredible entrees and serve family style! Psst … don’t sleep on the smoked brisket hash and wildberry pancakes because they’ll go fast.

If one thing is for sure, it’s that our downtown neighborhood near University of Auburn has no shortage of amazing local food spots. Enjoy digging in at one of these delicious Auburn restaurants over the holidays and find even more on our Neighborhood page.
