Five more "hole in the wall restaurants" you should try.

Arden's Kafe & Katering

As a male with no southern roots there are very few opportunities to indulge in southern comfort foods. Every once in awhile my brother-in-law will whip up a dish of cornbread oyster stuffing or sweet potato casserole. This invariably sends me into a few month journey to figure out how to make southern foods. I have made Mac & Cheese unsuccessfully 8 times or so. There's just something special about the mushiness of southern fare that I hope to master.

Arden's is as Southern as they come. Take a trip on a Sunday afternoon and you'll see about half of our city's Southern Baptists partaking in the buffet of collard greens, fried chicken, fried chops, ham, fried fish, cheesy grits, black-eye-peas...etc.

Arden's meals are made with fresh ingredients and from scratch. The opinions on Arden's will vary. Some are going to love it here for others it will be a "meh." For me, I'm in the middle but I definitely will go back and I definitely think it's worth trying.

Plus, Arden has a pretty cool story of going from prison inmate to restauranteur.
