We were sad to hear the news that Schlotzky's Deli in Tuscaloosa has closed its doors. The restaurant had a prime location off of 15th Street, and we don't want this great spot to be vacant long. 

What restaurant do you think should take the place of Schlotzky's? Here are 5 suggestions.

Culver's via Facebook

Culver's is known for their butter burgers and frozen custard. They'd make a great addition to the Tuscaloosa restaurant scene.

Alan Collins/Saw's via Facebook

I'm a huge fan of Saw's; they have some of the best barbeque and collard greens in this or any universe. They're currently located in Birmingham's Avondale district, so expanding to Tuscaloosa would feel like a second home.

Red Robin via Facebook

Bottomless fries? Gourmet burgers? What's not to love?

Hattie B's via Facebook

T-town isn't too keen on anything related to Tennessee (the big orange sucks), but we'll make an exception for Nashville Hot Chicken. Birmingham has a Hattie B's, and we need one, too!

Tom Chee via Facebook

Out of all the restaurants on my list, this is the one I'd most like to see in Tuscaloosa. Tom + Chee serves up soup and grilled cheese sandwiches, but with a gourmet twist. A grilled cheese on a doughnut? Heck yeah!
