Oh, how we Southerners love to eat. We have too many local favorites to count. Who among us hasn't bought boiled peanuts from a roadside stand in Georgia? No self-respecting Texan would pass up the humongous chicken-fried steak at Lulu's Bakery & Cafe in San Antonio, while Kentuckians opt for the cheesy-good Hot Brown at Louisville's The Brown Hotel. Folks in Baltimore swear by the crab cakes at Faidley's, but a beignet at Café Du Monde in the Crescent City wins, hands down--and sticky sweet--as the region's ultimate indulgence.
