Hamilton’s restaurant in Auburn doesn’t serve your typical college-town fare. Oh, there are burgers and such on the menu, but you can expect Hamilton’s has enhanced it in some way.

The restaurant has done the same to the Southern favorite fried green tomatoes. Instead of that traditional cornmeal and flour crust, Hamilton’s uses tempura batter to fry the tomatoes. Sandwich in some grilled shrimp between the fried tomatoes and add a couple of handmade sauces and you have the Fried Green Tomatoes and Grilled Shrimp.
