Another legendary, popular restaurant in Alabama is closing, but is it closing forever?
The "meat and three" family restaurant, Southland, is going away.
Some questions remain on how long this local favorite will be gone.
A sign on the door implies that it will return under new ownership at some point in the future.

Southland opened in 1947 and has had several owners through the years.
Of course, Southland was known for it's hamburger steak (and sauce) and fried catfish at their Cottondale location.
Several comments on social media also mentioned the salad bar with the famous "block of cheese" that you could grab a slice from.
A sign posted on the Southland door hints at a possible return one day down the road, but no firm date was given.
