Many people dine at His Place Eatery solely for The Experience—a term that could easily reference the restaurant's warm, down-home ambiance, but actually refers to its signature barbecue bologna sandwich. This Memphis-style sandwich piles coleslaw on top of fried bologna and barbecue sauce in an onion loaf bun. This is just one of several sandwich creations at His Place Eatery, who excels at serving up Southern cuisine with plenty of panache and gravy. Their classic entrees range from fried chicken wings on a belgian waffle to ribs flavored by a 12-spice rub, which have been slow smoked over hickory wood rather than quick smoked in a time machine. Sides such as collard greens, candied yams, and bourbon cream corn complement tangy meals, and desserts conclude them with chocolate-chip cookies baked to order.
