Gourmet Pizza, Cheap Beer, Central Location: In the heart of Southside, there exists a local favorite known as Cosmo's Five Points Pizza. Where else in Birmingham can you get a pizza with everything from Alligator (tastes like salty chicken!) to Zucchini on the same pizza? The food comes in large portions that certainly support the fair prices. The beer is cheap. The decor is funky is a wigged-out 90's-bar-meets-50's-diner kind of way. The huge picture windows allow you to people-watch as you eat. The waitresses are relaxed and informal and the TV is almost always going. Good music playing in the background? Certainly! And last time I was there, Cosmo's was hosting one of the best Service Industry Night parties in town. Recommendations? The Billy Salad, named after the owner, or The Cop Sandwich (named for all the pork products on it). And if you get a salad, you HAVE to try the Cosmo's bleu cheese dressing - it isn't your standard fare! Once you've had their handmade creation, the bleu cheese dressing from the store and from other restaurants will never compare again.
