First and foremost, The Southern has one of the best patios in Asheville. Additionally, their food is premium quality. (Oh, and they also have a full bar.) You’d think a dish like mac ‘n’ cheese would be, well, fairly generic. Honestly, I ordered it because I wanted something hot and cheesy, and that’s exactly what I got. What I didn’t expect was the waitress’ *amazing* suggestion: that I try adding some sriracha to the dish. Let me tell you, that one tip revolutionized the way I eat mac ‘n’ cheese — it’s delicious. This is pretty much what you can expect from The Southern: classic food served up quick and well, plus some friendly advice from your server. A happy surprise!
