Fourteenth Street Grill growing up, changing

The Fourteenth Street Grill has grown up.

Now in its fourth generation, the Phenix City restaurant has had several location changes but the menu has largely stayed the same.

Hamburgers and hot dogs. Scrambled dogs, a regional speciality. Grilled cheese. Fries. Chili. Slaw.

If you like a casual, homey atmosphere and don't have much to spend on lunch, this might be your place.

The grill got its start in the 1940s as part of Moore's Grocery.

In 1970, Jerry Horne and Martha Gothard bought it and about 10 years ago moved the grill to its current location.

The restaurant is such an institution, people who have lived in the area previously and now live elsewhere get menu items shipped on dry ice.

Some as far away as Germany.
