Local couple turned restaurateurs, Chef Willum Rogers and his wife Ellen, started Avondale Common House to extend their passions for good food and impeccable service.
The couple, who met and married while training under several local chefs, pride themselves on the relationships they’ve built over the years with vendors, farmers, and farmers markets. Their main focus is amazingly fresh, seasonal and sustainable food with an emphasis on the local produce and seafood Alabama and the South have to offer.
Avondale Common House offers catering services for all sorts of events. Join them on Sundays for brunch and a bloody mary and mimosa bar with a full bar, wine and champagne.
Look for their second location in Trussville, Alabama in Spring 2019.
What They're Saying
I can say that I really love this new place in Avondale! After 2 visits I have enjoyed everything that I've tried. The dishes have been different and so full of flavor. Fried green tomatoes with pork belly and pimento cheese work so well together for a great twist on a common appetizer.
Eddie hooked me up with a Vanilla Old Fashioned. Smooth, citrus deliciousness. Halley suggested the Fried Green Tomatoes! Holy tastiness. BBQ pork belly and tomato chutney. So enjoyed. The house made pimento cheese was the finishing touch. Get yourself some.

This place was fantastic for a business lunch. Met here for an interview I didn't want to go to but figured I'd see it through and eat for free ya know? Arrived and was seated on the patio which was comfortable and spacious and ordered a drink as my...
I still can't believe the deliciousness I experienced! I ordered kung pao cauliflower to start and my date ordered fried green tomatoes that came topped with pimento cheese. I know it's nearly against all rules of common decency in the south to not like pimento cheese, but y'all, I hate it! At least, I thought I did...
Southern BLT, Spring Street Shrimp Tacos and Pork Belly, Egg and Cheese...couldn't go wrong with this awesome menu! We swung into town and headed straight over to try out the Common House! We were not disappointed. Staff was friendly, atmosphere was awesome, food was delicious, food came fast! I was truly impressed!
