If you want some traditional southern cooking, get yourself over to Screen Door. This southern food is made with natural, local, and organic ingredients, and it’s as tasty as it sounds. We recommend the fried chicken and waffles, the Cajun scramble, or the shrimp and grits. Don’t forget to leave room for some Creole pecan or lemon coconut pie.
