The Delta was the first soul food restaurant I ever went to, so while some people complain that it's not really authentic, to me it tastes like the way soul food should be. The atmosphere is kitschy-cool the way your grandma's attic would be if she used to practice voodoo; the music selection is eclectic and a little crazy to say the least. Servers are pierced and hip, but generally friendly. The drink menu is exciting, but the real key is the mac and cheese. Each entree comes with your choice of two sides--a decision I used to dread, until I discovered that the answer to the conundrum was "Double Mac, please". The 1/2 barbequed chicken with red sauce is fantastic eaten cold the next day. And don't miss the 40 oz PBR, which is served elegantly in a tableside ice bucket--finally giving Pabst the respect it deserves.
