Hipster spot and local favorite. There's a wait on the weekends. Amazing fried chicken and comfort food classics that make you feel good inside. The chicken biscuit might be one of the most ridiculously unhealthy things we’ve ever seen on a plate, and it’s delicious. Breakfast specials like chicken…

The undisputed star of this Dixie shack is the moist chicken with irresistibly crispy batter, but the sides keep us coming back. Order the Superbowl, with baked beans, hush puppies, collards and your choice of corn bread or biscuits. Make sure to leave room for the banana cream pie.

This place takes me back to my roots of the south. This place is a must try for your restaurant list. All I can say is “fried fish and cheese grits.” Your welcome

The best food, has been around for awhile and still chill vibe. I suggest going early (open at 10AM) on weekdays. The weekend brunch crowd gets packed, arrive before 11:30AM not to wait. Specials are always good!

Diner
“Retro railcar environment, cool and funky spin on a diner, located under the Williamsburg Bridge. You don't get a physical menu, the servers scribble the day’s offerings directly onto your butcher-paper tablecloth. All the food is excellent! 85 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY 11249”
