Mert’s Heart and Soul

Map214 N. College St.

Description:

Mert’s is many things at once: a Beautiful People Place in the heart of uptown, a roadside dive with a giant “EAT” sign in the dirt parking lot, and your grandma’s kitchen. With the aroma of fried chicken, cornbread, and butter filling every crevice, it smells like the best Sunday you can remember—and tastes like it, too. The only downside is when you’re done eating, you can’t take a nap on the couch.
