They were driving the bacon truck long before the bandwagon hooked on, and Elizabeth's is rightly famous for its brown-sugar-coated praline bacon. If the quality's dropped a bit since that heyday and service leans toward perfunctory, this is still a solid choice, especially for breakfast or brunch, for the bacon and more. Like the rarely-seen fried chicken livers with pepper jelly, or bleu cheese oyster appetizer. The bananas Foster pain perdu is a perennial winner. The dinner menu is stacked with solid Southern staples: stuffed catfish, crab cakes (thumbs up), an impressive and well-priced ($25) smoked ribeye. Dessert? More praline bacon, please.
