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.

Who Dat's Southern Restaurant
When Chris and Micki first met, they quickly bonded over their shared love of food. Chris reminisced about the spicy jambalaya, the creamy crayfish étouffée, and the rice and beans of his native New Orleans, and Micki shared stories about growing up in her parent’s restaurant. Like shrimp and grits or onions and tears, the two were a natural pair. They got married and officially combined their culinary passions, forming their own restaurant, Who Dat's Southern Restaurant.
Guests are drawn into the shop by the wafting smells of spicily seasoned seafood, andouille sausage, and pulled pork that’s been slow-cooked with a dry rub for 10 hours. One weekend a month, they set up shop outside to have a southern boil, letting guests experience the sociability and great tastes of the south without meeting, befriending, and subsequently boiling Mr. Peanut.

“If there is one thing the south is lacking its vegetarian friendly food. As a vegetarian, when eating in the south I typically have to order sides - think mac n cheese (the vegetable of the south), hush puppies, sweet potato casserole... Who Dat's had nothing on the menu that I could eat. I ordered the muffaletta without meat which I've eaten before in the French Quarter. It was really good, but I have a feeling the staff was bewildered that anyone would order it that way. I don't think that Who Dat's should change anything on their menu, but having at least one southern option that a vegetarian could order would be nice. ”
