The patty sculptors at Your Burger hand-form locally raised beef, Alaskan salmon, and vegan-friendly veggies into juicy patties crowned with a farmers’ market’s worth of local produce. Available at a buffet, toppings such as crisp onions, cool lettuce, and plump tomatoes hide and enhance certified Angus or grass-fed patties, just as footie pajamas both hide and enhance the existence of a person's flippers. Sides of sweet-potato fries and onion rings round out casual American meals, as staffers blend up creamy hand-dipped shakes and scoops of Edy's ice cream, providing a more pleasantly frosty epilogue than a cryogenically frozen narrator.

Just as Your Burger's patties outpace stereotypical burgers, its decor transcends typical quick-service eateries. An exposed stone divider cordons off the open kitchen, allowing guests to watch their meals being flipped as they recline near the purple-and-orange Edy's counter.

At Angelo's Picnic Pizza, brothers Nick and Joe LaMattina carry on the generations-old family tradition of hand crafting pizzas using secret recipes passed down from their late father, Angelo.

A big pink pig hovers above Fat Boys Bar-B-Q, intent on its job of catching the eyes of all who drive by on Murfreesboro. Beneath his porcine gaze, cooks brush racks of ribs with zesty sauce, pull pork and chicken for sandwiches and platters, and slow smoke beef brisket. Sides of house-made potato salad, corn bread, and fried okra accompany plates of catfish, sauce-covered rib tips, and brisket quesadillas. To ensure that no freezer ever goes hungry, Fat Boys Bar-B-Q makes its meats available by the pound.

Since its first restaurant—literally a small, converted shack—opened in 1980, Uncle Bud's has filled its menu of Southern-style eats with golden-brown morsels of fried catfish, chicken, and shrimp. Succulent strips of chicken are breaded by hand before plunging into the deep fryer, and everything from catfish fillets and frog legs to wild-gator tails pile onto dishes such as the Bayou platter. The scent of fried po’ boys fills the dining area, which is decorated with license plates and vintage camping supplies, where patrons can happily slake their hunger or pack up carryout containers with family-size helpings large enough to feed an entire terracotta army.
