Fodor's Review

This hip, personality-driven eatery is the type of joint you'd expect to find in a big city, not in the suburbs. The farmhouse-chic restaurant is all about Southern hospitality, high-cal comfort food, and some darn good cocktails. First-timers are bound to start the night with "Swamp Water," a mason jar filled with a greenish concoction of 100% blue agave tequila, blue curaçao, orange juice, and gummy worms. The eating frenzy often begins with fried green tomatoes and

crab hush puppies before moving on to the chicken and waffles or the beer-can chicken (smothered in beer gravy). After a few mason jars, head to the old-fashioned, dress-up photo booth to shoot some incriminating, for-your-eyes-only, photos.
