Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken (Memphis, TN)

We ended the first day of our cross country trip with dinner at Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken in Memphis, Tennessee. Since we were arriving at our friend’s house in Little Rock, Arkansas, fairly late we thought it best to make a pit stop before and see whether fried the chicken was worth the hype….

Hillcrest Little Bakery (Little Rock, AR)

After an hour-long tour of the Little Rock Nine National Historic Site, we were famished. A quick Yelp scan later, we decided to check out HLB. We are a Little Rock based bakery set out to create quality pastries and meals that are as unique as our customers. We are proud to be a part…

Rocky’s Hot Chicken

This popular spot opened in Greenville, South Carolina, within the last year or so. When it first opened the lines were incredibly long and out of the building. One Friday, we decided we had plenty of time to wait so we made our way to Rocky’s. It has a decent-sized parking lot across the street…

Legends on the Lake

As is our custom, we jumped in the car and headed to the mountains for a weekend ride. Chris is always scanning the web for the best places to go. I had no idea where we were headed. We ended up at a resort in North Carolina near Lake Lure. I wasn’t sure what to…

Home Team BBQ

Y’all know how we are about our barbecue. Chris lived in Kansas City for a few years. We traveled all over Texas just to eat barbecue one summer vacation. Try Lockhart’s in Dallas. Anyway, our favorite local place is SBH BBQ. Of course, Henry’s is a respectable option. There are a few hipster BBQ places…

Southern Grit (Knoxville,TN)

The Story We were traveling through Knoxville, Tennessee, on the way to Indiana when we decided to stay in the city for the night. The restaurant had a dark, stripped down aesthetic and was conveniently located on a corner spot lined with huge windows. There was a short wait but it wasn’t too bad.  The…

Clare’s Creamery

As we were taking our usual shortcut through #YeahThatGreenville, I saw this cute frozen treat spot among the trendy storefronts next to Fork and Plough. I mentally added it to our list of new places to try. The exterior looked promising. I confess I’m all about aesthetics…and good eats. I assumed it would be like…

The Dive on Augusta Street

This eatery is located next to Two Rooms, a home decor shop I occasionally like to peruse on the weekends. We were starving so we decided to take a chance since it was close. It lives up to its characterization as a dive. The interior is fairly small though there are a few full-size wooden…
