3. Cajun Town Cafe

Don't judge this book by its cover. Cajun Town Cafe may look grim, but it's well-known for having some of the best Cajun (and Salvadoran) food in the city. Founded by former Pappadeaux employee Moises Marquez, a Salvadoran who worked his way up from busboy to head cook at the chain's location on the South Loop, this is the second location of Cajun Town and one of my favorite spots for gumbo and fried shrimp po-boys.
Captain Benny's owns its own fleet of shrimping vessels and other fishing boats, which is the best way to ensure the seafood a restaurant is receiving is fresh, local and un-messed-around-with. This also means the seafood is far cheaper than at a restaurant who deals with a middle man. The little boat-shaped Captain Benny's are a reliable source of beautiful Gulf oysters (in season) as well as any other Gulf seafood you can think of.
1. Resie's Chicken and Waffles

Guess what? You don't need to stand in line at the breakfast klub for excellent chicken and waffles. You can head to Resie's instead, where Resie herself uses her grandmothers' recipes for fried chicken and golden waffles to great acclaim. You can even get them all day long, but you'll want to explore the other sections of Resie's menu: baked mac 'n' cheese and fried okra don't pair well with waffles, but they're great on the Fat Mac Combo with four Southern-style chicken wings.
