Celebrating sausage on Rainey Street, this place has become a neighborhood staple. Sure, the ample and often unexpected selections of sausage are responsible, but don't forget the creative specials, such as fried chicken sausage atop creamy mashed potatoes.

The best meal to have here is Sunday brunch. The steak and eggs are just that, a decent-sized rib eye and a couple of eggs, all cooked precisely to order. All seats are alfresco.
