The Depot Deli and Grill - Helena AL


The building itself has quite a bit of history surrounding it.  Moved to its present location in 1999, it is one of the oldest structures in town.  Originally located just north of the present railroad crossing, The Helena Freight House & Depot was built around 1872 by the South and North Alabama Railroad Company. Just about everyone and everything coming into or leaving Helena passed through this depot.  It survived a major fire in 1895, a tornado in 1933 and numerous floods.






Located at the intersection of Highway 261 and Lake Davidson Lane in Old Town Helena, The Depot Deli & Grill is easy to find.  It's right next to the bridge over Buck Creek and across from the The Red Caboose and the railroad tracks.

Love The Depot!!!  Especially in the Spring and Fall when dining on the open porch is prime.  So peaceful and relaxing and the food is so delicious!  Best burger in town and my husband believes the chicken salad is second to none.
