Working in Huntsville, Alabama? Looking for the best lunch spots?

For a Monday pick-me up: Phat Sammy’s
When it comes to combating that start-of-the-week lethargy, Phat Sammy’s is the place to be. Their food is always weird and delicious, but Mondays are a special experience thanks to their Lunch Lady Glow Up Specials.
You read that right – each Monday, Phat Sammy’s rolls out a new special served on a lunch tray for maximum nostalgia, though the food is way more delicious than anything you can find in a cafeteria. Each special comes with an appetizer, an entrée, a side, and a dessert, plus a drink of your choice… and all this for under $15.
You can find Phat Sammy’s downtown on Jefferson street, just look for the metal pineapple! To see a Blue Summit Supplies exclusive on this one-of-a-kind restaurant, check out our Made in the Rocket City video featuring Phat Sammy’s.

Our Graphic Designer, Jess, has a regular order when she goes: the medium special, which is 8 medium wings served extra wet, fries, and a sweet tea. But her love extends beyond just a regular order. She also named her kitten Cricket after the restaurant chain. Good job, Jess.
