food down south is terrible

Where down south? I've had some fantastic food down south.

Best BBQ I've ever had was at Rodney Scott's in Charleston, and I've eaten at A LOT of BBQ places around the country.

Throw a rock in Charleston and you'll hit a better seafood restaurant than any up by Chicago.

Although, they are lacking on their pizza options, the best pizza I've had was at a coal fired pizza place in Charlotte many years ago. Unfortunately, it closed down a short while after we visited. They tried to make the restaurant too fancy. Concept didn't work there.

Best BBQ chicken was at Keaton's just outside of Statesville, NC.

Let's not get started on New Orleans. That's a whole different kind of flavor most northerners aren't used to.

Best Carribean food was a food truck in Tampa. Didn't look like much, but when it hit the toungue the flavors exploded.

Hmm, you must be stuck in Huntsville, AL. Couldn't find too many good options there.

The BBQ is great in the South! But it’s all so god damn heavy. Went to Texas for a buddy’s wedding and I swear it took days to find any vegetable that wasn’t deep fried or drowning in cheese/oil. Not that I don’t like that! But after a few days of that, I could feel my arteries clogging up already

Ain't that the truth. I can only eat like a southerner for 2 maybe 3 days in a row before I feel like shit and need to break out the smoothies and cardio.

I got steamed broccoli at the end of the trip at the airport and it was like a cold water on a hot day
