Historic Tuscaloosa Landmark Rama Jama’s is for Sale
For 20 years, Rama Jama's has lived in the shadows of Bryant-Denny Stadium but now that it's for sale, will it remain or become another row of apartments?
The property is listed for sale, without an asking price, on real estate site LoopNet. The listing states,
For sale or sublease is the owner's leasehold interest, business, and all furniture, fixtures, and equipment. There are 15 years remaining on the below-market rate lease. With a contract to purchase and/or sublease, all financials and leases will be provided to interested party.
Then comes the question, what will happen to this Tuscaloosa landmark? With the current state of building progress in Tuscaloosa, a first thought would be that a major company could come in, buy out the lease, demolish the building and put up a few condos. Would someone buy the building, change the menu and decor?
Owner Gary Lewis opened Rama Jama's on a game day Saturday, September 14, 1996. Since then, Crimson Tide players, coaches, fans and others have frequented Rama Jama's for not only the atmosphere but also for their sandwiches and all day breakfast menu which includes the National Champs Burger and the Awesome BLT and it's 15 slices of bacon goodness!
Who knows what will happen to the historic Rama Jama's. I'd like to think, and hope, that a rich fan will buy it and not change a thing. If you are that person, please click here to make an offer.
