Milkshake at Mrs. Story’s 100 Dishes To Eat In Alabama Before You Die


Milkshake at Mrs. Story’s in Opelika is the 98th dish on my quest to eat all 100 Dishes To Eat In Alabama Before You Die. #2 if I am counting down. to zero and I’m getting so close.


Mrs. Story’s was my calm in the storm. Opelika, AL

Tasty Tuesday – Last week I wrote about my stormy experience on the interstate and my stop at Mrs. Story’s for my 97th nibble, which was a chili dog.  I liked it and gave my two cents on how this chili dog might be duplicated.

This week is a short but sweet post on that milkshake.  I chose chocolate because it is a standard for me.  And, NO, I don’t want to hear about that Kelis song.

They make the shakes from scratch and those fresh ingredients make for a good old fashioned milkshake.  In 2017, “Simply Southern TV” gave Mrs. Story’s the honor of being The Master of Milkshakes.  [1] Mrs. story’s in Gadsen Times

This MEGabites and MEGastars description is found at the bottom of each post. If you are new to my 100 Dishes in Alabama escapade, this may be helpful information.

ABOUT:  *100 Dishes To Eat In Alabama Before You Die,” is a compilation of food to chow down on “Bama style.”  Thanks to Tourism Alabama, my Alabama bucket list just became a little easier.  I am going to have some food fun while making my way like Ms. Pacman, in yet another state that I call home.   From the little old diner to the white cloth setting, this journey is an opportunity for me to explore my new state and experience pride in food from restaurateurs who are dedicated to local food, with some Alabama style. From the local BBQ smoker to James Beard recipients, you too will take a culinary trip across scenic and historical Alabama.  From this list, I select stops based upon convenience of location and they are in no particular order (but I already have a few favorites.)  Perhaps when I finish this list, I will rank my favorite dishes. You too may pick up the brochure at Alabama Tourism stops or download the alphabetical brochure that begins in Abbeville and ends in York.

I use a 5 MEGastar system.  For the most part, I am traveling a distance to try these dishes and these places get one shot at how I view the food and experience.   I will not be taking an average of three visit experiences and I factor this in when I give my star rating. That said, I’m very easy to please, I can overlook quite a bit and have worked in the food service industry.  I am not a paid food critic, just Meg, a curious traveler, with an interest in trying different foods and sharing my two cents on the experience.  I try to follow my own star system so that I may be fair to the wonderful dishes on this list.

  • *meh food. Just wasn’t good. Maybe the food came from a can? or,  the place was not one that I would want to send someone to show pride in Alabama.   This has happened to me a few times and is a difficult write.
  • ** passable – the food was “ok” but the place was not “ok” or vice versa.
  • *** good but not outstanding or unique.
  • **** Very tasty dish AND meets one of the definitions set forth by Alabama Foods/Tourism, of local food and/or truly highlights Alabama Pride.
  • ***** I actually died, went to heaven and came back when I ate the dish. And/Or, something is very unique, something you cannot get anywhere else.
