Cuisine: Barbecue/Soul Food
Back in business after a fire shuttered this location for a few years! Thick slices of beef, barbecued chicken sandwiches and unbeatable cornmeal-dusted catfish are just a few of the items that make this a premier restaurant to blow your diet sky-high. But what really pushes this place over the edge are the fantastic side dishes: like their addictive fried okra, smoky, salty greens and tender black-eyed peas, which are prepared with the same reverence and care as the main attractions. We forbid you from leaving without first ordering a slice of their superb sweet potato pie or a piping hot bowl of cherry cobbler à la mode. Aw, what the hell—just get both and die happy.
