Bryant Drive and Wallace Wade Avenue, is serving alcohol.The burger joint, famously filled to the brim with Alabama memorabilia, now sells beer, wine and even mimosas with their football-inspired menu items like the National Championship BLT, which features 17 slices of bacon. And judging by reactions from fans during last weekend’s game against the Citadel, the new menu items are a hit.“We came straight from the airport,” UA alumna Erin Burger said. “Came here, walked all over campus. And we were tired and hungry, and much to our delight we came here and there was beer and mimosas. It was the perfect stop for us to stop.”Rama Jama’s is popular among Alabama fans, but anyone who is at least 21 years old can come in and grab a six pack of beer for their tailgate.“Now people who would pass by Rama Jama’s, or not come because they couldn’t get a beer with their burger and eat elsewhere, now come and eat or stay longer,” owner Michael Hebron said.Hebron took over as owner of the iconic restaurant after longtime owner Gary Lewis retired, much to the disappointment of the community. However, Hebron is committed to keeping the traditions of Rama Jama’s alive while also enhancing the popular game day spot.“We’ve added TVs to the outside of the building to the patio, which faces the stadium, so now people will come watch football on game day,” Hebron said.And even though football season is coming to a close, Hebron said alcohol sales are here to stay.During a home game, Rama Jama’s is open from 6 a.m. until three hours after the end of the game. Their regular hours are Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Saturdays 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. They are closed Sundays.last_img read more
