Hole in the Wall Southern food in North Florida

apbaz | Apr 6, 200801:25 PM     19

I moved to Gainesville a few years ago from Arizona, and have found it hard to connect with southern cooking. I'm looking for good mom and pop, family, hole in the wall southern food. In Gainesville, people have directed me to Juniors, which was fun. But the circles I run in don't seem to know much beyond that. "Go to <insert national chain here>" some people tell me.

So, people of North Florida, can you tell me where to find the food of the south? I have a few more years here, at least. I grew up on a lot of Mexican hole in the wall, but my Grandma was from Arkansas, so I had corn bread, pork chops, greens, biscuits, gravy, bacon, pecan pie, chocolate meringue pie, black eye peas, okra, red beans and rice through her, and I hope to find that again!
