If Southern food had a season, it would be now. The weather is getting a bit colder, and it’s been an utterly brutal year thus far. Southern food is like a hug, and the best place to get it in Arlington is Bayou Bakery. This casual eatery has all the food that will make you feel good from the inside out, and they do it with plenty of Southern flare and hospitality. Enjoy buttermilk biscuits, hearty gumbo, roast beef po’ boy sandwiches, and all the sides that you could ever want. Bayou Bakery is also known for their beignets, hot and crisp and doused in powdered sugar just like the ones in New Orleans.
As if all that we’re enough, you can also ‘grab and geaux’ from the provisions area to stock your fridge with pimento cheese, pepper jelly, and turkey meatballs. Those are all musts to have on hand as we get into football season. Find Bayou Bakery on North Courthouse Road with online ordering seven days a week.
