Good Southern cooking can transport you to a country kitchen—biscuits in the oven, chicken frying in the skillet, and a bare-chested Ted Turner in the doorway with an armload of firewood. Experience true grits with this Groupon.

$15 for $30 Worth of Soul Food

The menu includes appetizers of buffalo and lemon-pepper chicken wings ($6.95+), as well as dinner entrees that emphasize meat ($13.95–$28.95), such as blackened catfish or beef short ribs with sides such as collard greens, mac 'n' cheese, or yams.

Oohhs & Aahhs

Though the interior of Oohhs & Aahhs might be tiny—housing only four maroon-clothed tabletops in all—the flavors bursting from chef Oji Abbott's soul-food dishes are memorably big. So big that they have attracted the attention of celebrity visitors from Redskins cornerback Fred Smoot to rapper Jim Jones, as well as Guy Fieri of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, who remarked about the eatery's signature wings, "I don't like red buffalo wings. I don't like them anywhere except for here." The reason for these glowing reviews is Oji and co-owner India Wilson's menu of authentic soul food they created using their family's recipes, from meatloaf smothered in homemade gravy to creamy grits cradling fried shrimp. Each grilled or fried protein also comes with two classic southern sides, from gooey mac 'n' cheese to salty collard greens, which, as the Washington Post highlighted, often provides enough food to satisfy two people.
