Anybody taken the time to count the number of restaurants within a 1 mile radius of University & Enterprise Way?

My bet would be close to 100...

I have not, but at lunch time they are all slamed with business. At supper time most fast foods are dead.

Is this all tech types eat? Surely people want other selections, too. And they're always chains, too. UGH.
That's Huntsville for you, the people here like simple food, chains and buffet places

When I first moved here a co-worker started telling me about all the great restaurants that he loved to go to in Huntsville. O'Charleys, Bennigans (gone) Logan's, Ruby Tuesday, etc. Granted he did mention Rosie's and one of those country places (the lady died recently, maybe Eunice?) but, basically, I had all those same places where I came from.
It is because chain resteraunts have a better chance of surviving. We do need a good meat and 3 in that area.

I would like a nice ladies' lunch spot. Where you can get a nice fruit salad and/or a croissant. Maybe a good quiche. Some fruit flavored iced tea.

You know, a place where my husband won't go (because he doesn't get enough to eat) but my friends will.

For that ladies lunch try Michael's Cafe inside the Interior Market on Governor's in the Hampton Cove area. VERY GOOD. Everthing is made on premises. Their BLT slaw is great and the chocolate chip bread pudding is to die for. Love the chunky chicken salad on croissant too.

Yes, thank you for all the suggestions...BUT...
None of that stuff is near the research park or out near Madison. I would like a ladies' lunch spot that is on the western side of Huntsville.
