Dew Drop Inn
1808 Old Shell Road
Founded in 1924, the Dew Drop is Mobile's oldest restaurant, and it hasn't changed much since the 1920s. You'll still see mostly locals here, the tables will be adorned with flowers in Coca-Cola bottles, and the waitresses will call you 'precious.' But most of all, the food will be wonderful - cheeseburgers with or without toppings like sauerkraut or chili, fries, and Gulf Coast specialties such as po' boy sandwiches, shrimp, turnip greens, and rice.
