We love the Frito pie made with "Grandma's Immortal Chili," and we're especially partial to the fried green tomatoes and the fried catfish basket.

The most elegant food at the mall, with a menu strong on ladies-who-lunch fare. Salads and sandwiches are exceptional, but more substantial offerings are there for the asking.
