Where To Find Your Black-Eyed Peas For New Years Day

peasby Steven Doyle

Black-eyed peas have long been a traditional New Years dish with the thought that they bring the eater good luck. The tradition dates back to the Civil War, when Union troops, especially in areas targeted by General William Tecumseh Sherman, typically stripped the countryside of all stored food, crops, and livestock, and destroyed whatever they could not carry away.

Certainly look to the obvious spots such as Celebration on Lovers Lane in Dallas where they have been serving  southern hospitality since 1971. In addition to your black-eyed peas, you can also find a great chicken fried steak, catfish, meatloaf and other hearty dishes to start your year off right.   Continue reading

Free Chowder at Shell Shack Today


Shell Shack invites diners to “chowder down” and celebrate National Clam Chowder Day with a FREE bowl of clam chowder with a purchase of an entree.
