If we have a non-southern guest, we try to make a trip to Mary Macs for a very traditional southern meal introduction. The restaurant only accepts cash (they have an ATM machine inside in case you forget) and you get a little pad and pencil to write your order down for the waitress/waiter. They have everything from fried okra and fried chicken to livers and mint juleps to drink. I have had some absolutely delicous food there and some that weren't much better than any other restaurant. However, it's a nice atmosphere and good southern experience.
