The founder of Crockmiers was Thaddeus P. Crockmier, a professional gambler and son of a wealthy plantation owner who wanted to build the most unique restaurant in the south. He started the restaurant on Peachtree Street in Atlanta in 1875 before it eventually moved to Alabama. I enjoyed one of their specialties, the Conecuh burger, in which the ground beef is mixed with Conecuh sausage. T.P. Crockmiers had good food and a friendly atmosphere but the highlight was the delightful surprise of its charming location in the historic section of Mobile, Alabama.
