    I don't know the best place but in Mt Airy there's a place called Geechee Girl Cafe that has Southern Food that we like.

      Another great place for authentic southern style soul food is Le Breaux (spelling?) at the Overbrook train station parking lot, off City Ave. Slow, small place, need a rez, but very good last time I was there.

      all the places on West Girard Ave, particularly Butters. And isn't there a place called Miss ?'s I can't remember the lady's name, Miss Diane's or Miss Tina's?

        I've heard of Ms Tootsies on South St. Never been there before, but I heard it was good.
