Wiregrass Newsroom: Fans Come Out for Iron Bowl

Dothan, AL (WSFA) -- Healthy rivalry, with a healthy heap of food on the side.

An afternoon of football and fun at Beef O'Brady's in Dothan.

With a divided restaurant, shouts of "Roll Tide!" and "War Eagle!" echoed from the walls.

Fans started filling the restaurant around two o'clock, but management says they weren't expecting many Auburn fans to come out this year.

"Usually the team that's favored will come out and the team that's not will stay at home. They don't want to be out in public," says Beef O'Brady's owner, Trey Mobley.

Beef O'Brady's is just one of the many restaurants that experienced a packed house for the game. The owner says the restaurant can hold about 95 people. But even if they don't fill it to capacity, they say take out orders have made up the difference.

"Most of the business has been carryout--wing trays and platters for the parties. It'll be better than the average Saturday for football season just due to the large amount of parties that people are having."

And a party it was. Big screens and chicken wings--another Saturday afternoon for football fans in the Wiregrass.
