M3, the newest arrival in Davis Square, is generating positive hound reviews both for its Southern dishes and the restaurant as a whole.

Fried green tomatoes are a standout, says jforman, who suspects the tangy tomatoes are pickled before frying. jforman’s only caveat: “Skip the dressing,” and eat the tomatoes on their own.

The hot wings are really tasty, with a great mustard barbecue sauce, DoubleMan reports. And gini thinks the shrimp and grits are a good bet, despite the smallish serving.

Opinions on the fried chicken are mixed: maillard found it bland and dry, but pang loved it paired with waffles.

Hounds like the restaurant’s funky interior (with chalkboard tables built for tic-tac-toe) and the large canned beer selection, but warn about major issues with the air-conditioning. It might be best to wait for the current heat wave to pass before dropping in on M3.
