Demos’ in Florence, Alabama

Breaking news!!! spagwmeatballsDemos’ Restaurant opens in Florence, Alabama, at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 28. If you want downhome comfort food at a great price served with a smile, this is the place to be. The family-owned and -operated business started in Murfreesboro, Tennessee and has three other locations around the Nashville area. When my mother-in-law still was able to get out and about, Demos’ in Murfreesboro was her favorite place to eat. In fact, even though she hasn’t been there for several years, the Demos’ folks still remember her and ask about her — that’s the sort of people they are and that’s the sort of attitude they’ve brought to Alabama. Go see for yourself, order a seafood-stuffed baked potato and tell ’em Tennessee Pitts sent you. The Florence restaurant is behind Books-a-Million at 339 Seville Street (the street off Cox Creek Parkway that goes between the entrances to Kohl’s and Wal-mart). If you miss it Sunday, be there at 11 a.m. on Monday when it opens for lunch. And visit to look at the menu and learn more about the Demos’ family story.

  1. Probably deserves a modest word of explanation. My mom, Tennessee (yes, her real name – Naomi Tennessee to be precise – was absolutely most fond of Demos’ of all the places she would eat in our hometown of Murfreesboro.

  2. And every Christmas she would bake tons — literally tons — of treats and take them to all her favorite people in town. The Demos’ folks still remember that.
