Phoenix New Times' Description

Like a Phoenix roadside stop by way of New Orleans, former food truck owners Michael Babcock and Jenn Robinson have taken over this iconic, 9-seat eatery at 10th and Roosevelt streets in Phoenix and packed it with some serious southern eats -- along with burgers and fries. From a small and ever-changing menu of Babcock’s favorite home made Southern-inspired dishes from around the country, don’t miss massive buttermilk biscuit sandwiches like the heavenly fried chicken with cheddar, bacon, and thick, peppery gravy; rich and flavorful red beans and rice, and an addictive poutine gone the way of a southern country kitchen.

    Chef @paytoncurry will whip up vegan dishes at anytime! Ask for them

    Welcome Diner is always a 10 out of 10. Best place to hang and have an adult beverage. Dog friendly too!

    If they have the fried okra get it!
