Animal Butter brings fast casual street food to Tuscaloosa

Whenever the contractors weren’t there working, the staff of Animal Butter was. Putting up fixtures, cleaning and making menu boards, all in preparation for their grand opening two weeks ago.

“It was very stressful but it was also very rewarding when we were able to open the doors,” said Aly Kirkham, who manages the dining area at Animal Butter. “It was like ‘okay we’re doing it.’”

Animal Butter, located on University Boulevard next to the Children’s Hands-On Museum, opened on Feb. 17. The fast-casual restaurant serves classic street food dishes, each one with a twist. Head Chef Joel Fredrick was a chef at Epiphany for five years before it closed in December.

“We wanted to do something that was still kind of upscale but we also wanted to be able to feed the masses at the same time,” Fredrick said. “Basically make sure that everyone could come in and have a good time and just enjoy themselves without having to worry about price point.”
