The Front Porch
We love hitting up this Southern spot during dinner for fried chicken, so it only makes sense that the Fried Chicken and Cornmeal Waffles are our go-to order. The Chicken Fried Steak with Sausage Gravy is a close second. Need something to help ease last night’s pain and set you up for an afternoon nap? Look no further than the Stoner Stack, a biscuit sandwich with fried chicken breast, fried egg, cheddar cheese, bacon, and house-made sausage gravy served with tater tots or grits. There are also a bunch of Porch Cocktails, including a Bloody Mary with bacon and pitchers of margs.
How to enjoy: Walk in or make a reservation here. Available from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
When dining at The Front Porch, we pretend like we’re “civilized” and order the cornmeal-crusted four-piece fried chicken dinner plate with garlic mashed potatoes and gravy and ham hock collards paired with one of the funky restaurant’s delicious cocktails. When we’re feeling slightly less civilized (or if an edible is in our future), we get a ten-piece bucket and brown-bagged beignets to take home and feast on our couch, opting for paper towels instead of plates. Either way is absolutely the exact correct way to do it.
How to book: Reserve a table on Yelp. Order takeout here.
