Best Southern Comfort Food 

Scend's Restaurant & Bar

Tender catfish, homemade coleslaw, and moist cornbread are just a few of the reasons Scend's has become an addiction for anyone who digs down-home comfort food. There are also addictive red beans and rice and homemade peach cobbler, and what other restaurant offers "100 Wings" on its menu? But Scend's cult following is due to more than its food. While the scent of freshly cooked snapper wafting outside the place helps draw in crowds, its lively atmosphere is what turns it into a community gathering spot. At night the employees crank up the music, fans of the joint's stiff drinks pack the bar, and friends toss darts late into the evening. Anyone demanding fat-free food or a quiet nightspot should probably look elsewhere. But for great chicken wings, perfectly seasoned seafood, and a lively crowd, this is the place. The restaurant no longer has a "Soul Food Sundays" menu, but it still serves its beloved gumbo on the first Friday of each month. It is closed Mondays, except during football season. Anyone cheering against the Raiders probably ought to order to go.
