About This Quiz

Step up to our southern food buffet and load up your plate! Don't be shy; food is a way of life in the American south. After you've packed yourself full of those comforting southern foods like okra, cornbread, and grits, you'll want to come back for seconds. You'll also let us know which southern city you are most like. 

In the same way that food varies widely from region to region, each southern city has their specialty. From Memphis style barbecue to North Carolina collard greens, the way things are prepared varies from city to city. Seeing your tastes in southern food will help us pick up on subtle clues about the city both your palate and your soul have the most in common with. 

During this quiz, we advise wearing a bib like you would wear to a Louisiana crawfish boil. If you love southern food as much as we do, our questions might make you salivate a little. With items like fried green tomatoes and deviled eggs on our menu, you might even find yourself calling for take out.
