Eats and drinks

Southern cuisine is unique and extensive - southern fried chicken and grits, biscuits (more like scones, normally served with gravy). Louisiana has Cajun and Creole cuisine with specialities such as gumbo, spicy seafood, blackened redfish, shrimp remoulade, po-boys and much more. Don't go to the Deep South with any intention of dieting!
