Mac & Min's

Focusing your efforts can pay big dividends, which is pretty much the whole theory behind going hogging. Slimming their options to ensure the hog isn't you, Mac and Min's

Touting a more pared down, Nawlins'-centric menu than its all-sandwiches-to-all-people progenitor Jerry's, Mac & Min's gives off a decidedly bayou shack vibe thanks to an up-front lunch counter surrounded by fish taxidermy and other aquatic knick knacks, randomly strewn beads, and posters touting Big Easy musicians like Dr. John, who wishes the kitchen would start Makin' Whoopee...pies. The menu's all about the 20-plus mayo/hot sauce/veggie dressed po' boys, including three styles of shrimp (fried, BBQ, or buttery hot-sauced Voodoo) and fried chicken, plus more out-there varieties like fried green tomatoes and 'gator sausage, which Tim Tebow has already taken the first cut out of. They're also doing olive relish-slathered muffulettas (avail quarter, half, and whole), while those looking for non-sammie faves can nab red beans & rice, traditional gumbo, fried oysters w/ toast and remoulade, and sweet potato fries w/ with either creole mayo or debris gravy (note: if it's "de bris gravy", then Tebow's still around).

Looking to pour some sugar on thee? M&M's got frozen custard from Scooter's, lemon & pecan pie bars, and bourbon caramel bread pudding -- hog 'em all, and the biggest effort will be getting off your rear divid-end
