Forgive Dan Robinson if he's too busy to talk right now.
The owner of the Tuscaloosa Burger and Seafood Company is a one-man kitchen staff during the Thursday lunch rush.
"This is going to be a little rough this year. All new staff, all new cooks," Robinson said.
That's why Robinson made sure his biggest food orders of the week arrived Monday and Tuesday in preparation for the Crimson Tide's first home football game of the year.
"That we order enough food, we get everything prepped ahead of time and ready to go and everybody just kind of getting their game face on," Robinson said.
Inside the store Bama Stuff, David Jones said they wanted more space for customers and more items for them to choose from.
"We have spent the last two weeks totally revamping and restocking the store," Jones said.
They brought in more exclusive products for the fall and used their website to track what products customers might be more inclined to buy once they step foot in the store.
Alabama home football games are big business.
Since kickoff is at 11 a.m. Saturday, most business are opening an hour earlier than usual and hope fans stick around in Tuscaloosa long after the game has ended.
