Barbeque

For as long as anyone can remember, mouthwatering barbeque has drawn foodies from afar to the Southeast and, likewise, satisfied the savory cravings of Southerners. In recent years, homegrown appetites have been infused with outside flavors and cuisine, creating startling diverse and dynamic food scenes across the Southeast’s cities and town. For those with an adventurous palette, there is no better time to live in the region as new influences have only bolstered the Southeast’s reputation as a mecca for great food. Let American Car Center celebrate and guide you to the Southeast’s top food town and their mostly wallet-friendly tastiest restaurants. Share your top spots and special finds with us at one of our more than sixty of convenient stores across eight states.

In this collection, Nashville, Tennessee tops state rival Memphis and its BBQ nachos. Infamous for sizzling hot chicken and other Southern-fried delicacies of Arnold’s Country Kitchen, the Music City has broadened its foodscape. House of Kabobs serves up delicious kabobs, kofta, and gyros.

Fried Chicken

Oxford, Mississippi is a charming and laid-back college town with serious foodie credentials. Old souls meet late-night at Ajax Diner then at Big Bad Breakfast for massive, flakey biscuits in the morning after or head to Handy Andy Grocery for pit-smoked BBQ. For distinctly local Southern dining, head to City Grocery and the century-old Taylor Grocery & Restaurant for renowned catfish and homegrown folklore.

Birmingham, Alabama, of fried green tomatoes fame, represents the culinary Fried Green tomatoes landscape of the Deep South. Yet, these days, the Magic City’s restaurants have something on the menu for everyone, from Cafe Dupont and Roots & Revelry to Chez Fonfon, a date-night worthy burger joint and Post Office Pie for wood-fired pizzas and small batch beer to and Miss Myra’s and Saw’s for tender barbecue. At Pizitz Food Hall diners can sample Middle Eastern, Asian and Ethiopian dishes. EastWest is the city’s home of budget-friendly casual fusion.

Winter Park, Florida, near Orlando, is a small center that has captured the essence of mid- and northern Florida’s restaurant scene. Shrimp and grits top the menu at The Ravenous Pig. At Luma, you’ll find amazing burgers and seafood ravioli. Cocina 214 adds pizazz to Tex-Mex.Shrimp and grits

The food scene in Atlanta, Georgia is sprawling, diverse and delicious. When in the Big Peach, start at esteemed Empire State South and then El Super Pan Latino Sandwiches & Bar. You’ll find phenomenal seasonal Southern cuisine at Miller Union, or you can chow down on big, buttery biscuits at Home Grown. Krog Street Market houses edgy eateries such as Ticonderoga Club and La Oaxaquena Taqueria.

Charleston, South Carolina is considered the Southeast’s top food town, effortlessly bridging Southern hospitality and innovative modern food. Still, the casual eats of contemporary country resto Butcher & Bee, Bertha’s Restaurant for soulful fried chicken and slow-smoked pork at Rodney Scott’s BBQ draw crowds. At breakfast, the honey-soaked chicken and waffles, biscuits and gravy, and shrimp and grits of Early Bird Diner make morning mouths water.Chicken & waffles

Beyond the authentic Shirley Mae’s for fried chicken and Bambi Bar for old Kentucky roadhouse grit and zesty burgers, Louisville, Kentucky taste-makers are blending experiences at Holy Grale, Against the Grain and the restaurants of Ed Lee (Whiskey Dry, 610 Magnolia and MilkWood.) The Silver Dollar and Garage Bar have a menu of Southern staples in a funky setting. For dressed-up but quirky, head to Proof on Main inside the boutique 21c Museum Hotel.
