This restaurant's dedication to a pan-Southern cuisine means a menu that includes everything from Low Country-style shrimp ‚ ‘n grits to Texas-style BBQ brisket to brunch specialties like a praline bacon waffle. On the plus side, the food is made with Portland's terrific local ingredients. "Dress warmly as you will likely wait outside for an hour" sums up the downside. One Texas-born reviewer praised it for serving "the best fried chicken and Southern-style veggies in the Northwest!"
