Coming Soon: Guthrie’s in Dothan

Guthrie's in Dothan

If you love chicken fingers, you’ve probably tried them all. And if you live in Alabama, you’ve also probably dined at a Guthrie’s or two. Well, the chicken chain is spreading its wings and traveling to new places. On the docket next? A Guthrie’s in Dothan, AL, at Highway 84 West and John D. Odom Road, which comes 10 years after our town’s last Guthrie’s closed. Yes, please!

About Guthrie’s

Alabama has a tasty claim to fame! We’re the state that Guthrie’s originated in, back in 1965. First opened in Haleyville, the chain also cooked burgers and steak sandwiches. Then, in 1980s, the chain switched to the model we all know and love: chicken fingers, chicken fingers, and hey, more chicken fingers!

They’ve also made their mark across the country. Now, Guthrie’s has restaurants in Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Florida, and Ohio too. And soon, we’ll also be able to find a Guthrie’s in Dothan.

More on the upcoming restaurant

The corner where Highway 84 West meets John D. Odom Road will soon serve up meals from Guthrie’s. Earlier in July, the city got the ball rolling by agreeing to upcoming development plans. Reeves Engineering and Construction developed the engineering plans.

We know—you want those chicken fingers and sweet tea right now. With the opening date not yet released, we will sadly have to be patient. At least you can use the time to plan what you’ll order!

Flipping through the menu

Speaking of ordering—let’s explore the menu. Some of the tasty offerings Guthrie’s has on the table include:

  • Chicken finger sandwiches;
  • French fries;
  • Their signature golden dipping sauce;
  • Coleslaw;
  • Texas toast;
  • And more.


A lot has happened in the past 10 years! Soon, that decade will also include the return of an old favorite: Guthrie’s in Dothan. Keep an eye out around town as building plans commence. Everyone will be chowing down on chicken fingers before we know it!
