Vittles' classic home-style menu is sure to satisfy even the most soulful longings of the appetite. For a lighter, more existential hunger, skip to the salad and sandwich selections and try a Vittles’ Little ($4.99) or Big ($6.99) salad—iceberg, romaine, and leaf lettuce with tomato, cucumber, red onion, boiled eggs, and shredded cheddar jack—or have a third-pound Old Fashioned burger ($6.99) on a corn-dusted bun topped with cheese and served with fries or chips and a pickle. To completely demolish hunger and leave it buried under a tide of your choice of cornbread muffins, biscuits, or rolls, order a dinner entree such as the country-fried steak ($8.49), a tenderized, battered steak fried golden brown and served with brown or pepper gravy and two sides such as mashed potatoes and fried okra. The truly famished can devour a platter of the ultimate beef pot roast ($10.99), braised to the maximum legal limit of tenderness and served with carrots, onions, and gravy alongside your choice of three sides.

Or gussy up for patty prom with premium add-ons such as coleslaw, chili, sautéed mushrooms, bacon, and more ($0.35–$0.60 per topping). The grill masters also flip the first white meat, prepping Hawaiian chicken sandwiches with grilled pineapple, mustard, mayo, and lettuce ($4.09). Away from the flames, feel free to enjoy a loaded baked potato ($2.79) and a wide range of pairable plates such as chili cheese fries ($2.59 for regular size), garden salads ($2.19), and sweetly baked fruit cobblers ($1.99).
Corky's menu lets you bite into smokehouse wings ($7), a Delta catfish sandwich with fries ($8), a full slab of wet and dry ribs with two sides ($19.50), a barbecue-stuffed spud ($7.50), and other sure cures for the blues, as well as certain strains of the purples and lycanthropy. Corky's offers family meals that serve three to four people and include a pound of meat, two sides, and buns, rolls, or corn muffins ($16 for a barbecue pork meal, $38 for two slabs of ribs).

Corky's offers lunch specials starting at $6 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the workweek.
Delicious Day's talented owners and sandwichsmiths craft a diverse menu of healthy sandwiches inspired by flavors from around the globe. The mediterranean chicken-salad sandwich slathers chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, and peppers in a feta-cheese dressing, and the jalapeño-turkey BLT corals oven-roasted turkey, smoked bacon, and pepper jack cheese between slices of jalapeño bread for a rodeo of flavors that’s spicier than a Tabasco-themed cabaret show. To create the seafood-salad sandwich, chefs toss shrimp and Alaskan crab in an ocean of seasoned mayo before mooring it betwixt bread. Simple sandwiches brim with Angus roast beef, sausage with peppers and onions, or peanut butter and jelly, each boasting bookends of white or wheat bread or a sandwich roll. Guests can also ensconce any simple sandwich in cranberry-pecan bread or jalapeño bread at an additional cost. Wash down bites with an array of drinks and munch on chips to loudly send a message to potato neighbors who refuse to mow their lawn.

It was more than two decades ago that Jeff "Jefferson" Webb opened the first Jefferson's Restaurant in Jacksonville, Alabama, funding the venture with a little help from his parents and the profits he earned from selling his precious baseball cards. Since then, Jefferson's Restaurant has expanded to more than two dozen locations throughout the U.S.—each one dishing out the signature wings, burgers, and fresh gulf oysters that made the original location famous. At the Brentwood location, diners can lounge on a sprawling outdoor patio, watching football on flat screens and clinking frosty brews beneath the sun.
