Ballard has a lot to offer, not the least of which is this craft dessert house. Their staple is a molten chocolate cake, but if you’re not looking to interact with your fellow citizens, there is plenty to take with you, like a s’mores kit and smoked chocolate chips in a mason jar.

Crawfish and corn chowder, fried green tomatoes, pork chops—these are but some of the decadent Southern-inspired foods for your whetted appetite. Pile on the gravy for the buttermilk fried chicken, add hot sauce to the gumbo, and lick your fingers clean. Then eat strawberry shortcake.
