    Southern Cornbread

    From Redditor u/lana7349:

    Cornbread, not northern attempts at cornbread either, go to a southern restaurant, also sweet tea in the south is quite different to the north.

    A Cheeseburger From A "Non-Chain" Restaurant

    From Redditor u/MrJeromeParker:

    A cheeseburger from a "non-chain" restaurant. The best burgers I've had have been from bars/cafes. Monk's is technically a chain but dammit are the burgers good and grilled on a bed of onions. If you see a Monk's, go in.
