What You'll Get
The most common way to experience the Deep South is to find a street magician and hope he pulls a shiny Louisiana state quarter from your ear. Today's deal presents another option when there are no illusionists handy: for $10, you get $20 worth of down-home cooking, handcrafted cocktails, and more at Miss Delta, a vintage dining space with a modern spin on classic Deep South dishes. Settled comfortably on North Mississippi Avenue's dining strip, Miss Delta dishes out dinner seven nights a week and lunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
Miss Delta's menu reads like a southern roadmap, traversing starter dishes such as fried okra ($5), sweet potato fires with homemade applesauce ($5), and steamed mussels shucked by the pound ($10). Main dishes dance to the Cajun beat of jambalaya bowls (tomatoes, okra, andouille sausage, smoked chicken, and shrimp over rice, $10) and flavor-rich po' boys available with Memphis-style sausage, catfish, or barbecue tofu ($7–$10). While dining, feel free to wash bites down to the Mississippi Delta with handcrafted cocktails ranging from classic mint juleps ($8) to the signature Miss Delta martini, which is shaken to please with vodka, pomegranate liqueur, orange-blossom water, fresh lemonade, and a refreshing nod of kinship from your stoic bartender ($7).
Dining at Miss Delta is like hanging at a friend's loft—a friend who makes a mean cocktail and wrestles alligators in a sophisticated, yet confident manner on the weekend. Stop in for special events throughout the week including 7-inch record party Sundays, when friendly folks gather round the turntable for tarot readings, friendship, and teamwork; and live music Wednesdays, when local performers do not give tarot readings but do give spirited performances.

- Don't miss the stellar fried chicken, with a leg and plump breast lightly battered and fried so that it's at once crunchy and juicy. – Grant Butler, Oregonian
- SO good. SO good. And once more, for good measure, SO good. – Lesley G., Yelp
- When I'm craving southern cooking, that's where I go. Great gumbo and the ambience is just lovely. – northwestshopper, Citysearch
