New South Diner has compiled a hospitable menu of classic Southern cuisine with contemporary twists. Start a romantic date on the right foot by carving your date’s initials into a selection of cured meats, sausages, and pimento cheese with the Carving Board ($8), or confidently compare your physique to that of the beefsteak-tomato salad ($6), which tosses together buttercrunch lettuce with blue cheese, smoky bacon, red onion, cucumber, and buttermilk bleu dressing. Fish fans can savor tastes of shrimp and grits ($17), which pairs the briny delicacies with pan-friend corn, ham crisps, and moppin’ sauce, and pork lovers can take advantage of the pig's natural tendency to overindulge with beer-braised pork, served with turnip greens, pintos, scallions, and chowchow, a Southern pickle relish ($16). Lunch and Brunch is also available.
At Old Richmond Grill, friendly servers carry out plates of hearty southern diner food. They pair main courses of fried pork tenderloin or pimento cheese sandwiches with sides such as mac 'n' cheese, black-eyed peas, and baked apples. After doling out cheeseburgers or fried chicken sandwiches, the cooks cap off feasts with sweet desserts of milkshakes and pecan or apple pie. The restaurant for 40 years only accepted cash—under new management since August 2012—now also accepts debit and credit cards.
At Big Shotz Tavern, chefs celebrate American comfort food with a vast menu of pizzas, burgers, and barbecue. They season and marinate chicken wings in homemade rubs, and whip up sauces and dips from scratch.
A bustling, lively atmosphere prevails in the spacious dining room. Big-screen TVs hover above the wraparound bar, and, in the warmer months, musicians serenade adorable diners with spinach in their teeth on the outdoor brick patio. The restaurant also hosts a weekly trivia night.
The ancients spoke of a day when a fellowship of highly intelligent strangers would journey to Earth to discover the magical coffee fields of middle earth. Together they would harvest this crop and forever break the decades-old curse of the evil mermaid! That day is now, and that coffee can be found at Brew Nerds!!
Cimarron Steakhouse's dinner menu is packed with American favorites, many of which are made with local produce. Warm up tongue buds with crispy fried dill pickle chips ($6) or Cimarron's Diego salad, a festival of finely shredded lettuce, diced fresh cucumber, bell peppers, spring onions, and garlic dancing in the dressing of your choice ($4). For a meatberg of a meal, opt for the black and blue burger, which consists of a Cajun-seasoned hunk of meat hoisting up delicately placed pieces of bleu cheese ($9), or, for a herbivorian helping, the Mediterranean veggie wrap ($9). Cimarron's steaks are all certified Angus beef, served in styles such as the six-ounce filet mignon ($18) and the bourbon-marinated 14-ounce New York strip ($24). The lunch menu, offered from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday includes midday monarchs such as a chicken salad croissant ($7), a prime rib sandwich ($12), and daily baked quiche ($8).
