    We had a few starters: beignets, fried okra, & mac 'n cheese. I had their incredible fried chicken & waffles- the bacon in the waffles takes the dish over the top. Everyone left feeling fat and happy!

    If someone offers you a biscuit, gravy, fried chicken, bacon, cheddar with a side of grits, you put on your elastic pants and say yes. (Stoner stack)
