Big Spring Cafe

3507 Governors Dr, Huntsville, Alabama 35805

Score: 100

There’s nothing like walking into a place and feeling comfortable and welcome. That is exactly what you get at Big Spring Cafe on Governers Drive in Huntsville.

Around since 1922 — the cafe has been in Gavin Milam’s family since 1946. Gavin says it’s the team of employees that makes Big Spring one of a kind — moving swiftly from one task to the next.

Everyday burgers are hand pressed to create the thick greasy burger that they’re known for. From breakfast to lunch — they pride themselves on freshly made food — never canned.
