Southern/Creole Food in the Inland Empire

With hearty favorites like buttermilk biscuits, fried chicken, cheese grits, and peach cobbler, Southern cuisine is one of the best choices for warm and filling comfort food. Lucky for us, we have a surprising number of joints slingin’ Southern specialties here in the IE!

You don’t need to wait for Mardi Gras to enjoy a taste of Louisiana. Creole cooking started there, but blends French, Caribbean, Spanish, West African, and Italian cuisines for spicy and savory dishes like gumbo and jambalaya. Louisiana-style seafood restaurants–in which piles of shrimp, crawfish, and crab are cooked, seasoned, and literally dumped onto your table–also make for a messy but fun night out.
