Southern cuisine varies greatly by region, from the Cajun and creole dishes of Louisiana to the bags of granulated sugar served at Disney World. Sample the South with this Groupon.

The dinner menu keeps things simple with old-fashioned "meat-and-two" plates made with organic ingredients. Diners can match mains such as fried chicken ($19), cornmeal-crusted fried catfish ($16), or three kinds of barbecue ($24) with such sides as candied yams, black-eyed peas in chow-chow sauce, and fried green tomatoes.

The Cardinal

The Cardinal, named after North Carolina’s state bird, serves the region’s signature style of barbecue while hewing to a simple philosophy: traditional recipes and quality ingredients. Using free-range chicken, grass-fed beef, heritage pork, and housemade sausage, bacon, and pickles, the soulful southerners serve classic Carolinian cuisine such as pork chops in red-eye gravy and blue-crab hush puppies. The house specialty—fried chicken marinated in brine and breaded with crispy cornflakes—earned The Cardinal a spot on the Village Voice's 10 Best Chicken Dishes list in 2012. The back-to-basics ethos extends to the decor, done up with whitewash, the restaurant's name in black paint over white bricks, and a stuffed turkey in mid-flight instead of standing at a ticket counter on a layover.

Reviews

Best southern food I've had in awhile. Menu is unassuming and gets to the point.

Mac N cheese is a standout. Baked beans and greens are both a close second. But, seriously, it's all mouth watering.
