280.14 Red Star Southern

Holy fried chicken! Actually, it’s not just the fried chicken that will have you coming back to this spot- the pulled pork is equally amazing. Both meats melt in your mouth, and the fried chicken just falls right off the bone. Everything on the menu definitely had a little bit of a spicy kick, and my mouth was on fire by the end of the meal, but it was delicious.

I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try the pimento grilled cheese, and boy, am I glad I did. An interesting yet delicious twist on a classic sammie. We capped things off with a side of mac and cheese; delicious.
