Is the Welton Street Cafe open? Try there. These folks give you large portions of mediocre "southern" food at a relatively high price ($14 in a carry-out box). They serve lots of lunches to folks who want lots of fat, salt, and sugar. Maybe the...More

Having been married for almost 30 years to my wife who is from Georgia, I've had my fair share of southern cooking when visiting the in-laws. This is pretty good for Denver, but doesn't come close to cooking I've had around Georgia/South Carolina.
