Sandra Dee has been a chef since she was 9, when she first helped her mother and grandmother—both accomplished home cooks—create zesty creole recipes for their Sunday get-togethers. Today, she continues that familial spirit, running the kitchen of her own barbecue restaurant with help from her husband, Jeffrey, their sons and daughters, and one nephew. Within her brick walls, covered on the outside with murals of jazz legends such as Etta James, Sandra Dee slow cooks barbecued beef tri-tips, pork loin, chicken, beef links, and other meats, flips barbecued veggie burgers, deep-fries catfish, and serves up sides of potato salad and hush puppies. To wash down savory bites, tenders pour beer, wine, and specialty cocktails, such as the mojito and Old Fashion Manhattan—a mix of bourbon and sweet vermouth that still occasionally wears pantaloons.

Logan's Roadhouse began as a simple celebration of barbecue and meat in Lexington, Kentucky. The theme resonated with diners, and the restaurant quickly multiplied from one kitchen to 230 company-operated locations and 26 franchises, spread across 23 states. At every location, the eatery retains its original Southern charm, calling bottled beers "ice-cold longnecks" and serving more than 50 entrees, such as aged, wood-grilled steaks with mesquite flavorings. Logan's Roadhouse also has a few other signature items, including made-from-scratch yeast rolls and bottomless buckets of in-shell peanuts. And, like any classic roadhouse, Logan's slings all manner of specialty drinks, including prickly pear margaritas and Roadhouse Tea made with Ole Smoky Tennessee White Lightning Moonshine.
