When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in the South, eat like a Southerner!

Enough with the appetizers! A burger is always the perfect All-American solution for lunch or dinner, and you can have your pick of a beef or bison burger with all the fixins like cheese, bacon, caramelized onions, mushrooms, and avocado. Sandwiches like like the popular Cowboys and Angeles Grilled Cheese on Texas Toast, Crab Cake BLT, or Chicken Sandwich are also a great pick.
