This place makes Southern comfort food like chicken and waffles, which are both delicious and will stick with you for a while after you’re done. The catfish po’boy is also solid if the idea of mixing breakfast and dinner isn’t your favorite. This place is big, so coming here with a group will work in a pinch if you’re looking for beers and food you can share.
