At Alston Bridges, the menus read “Pigs are Beautiful,” and businessmen and locals munch on the red slaw that takes on a spicy flavor in the early summer when the cabbage comes in from the North. But don't confuse this Bridges for another, Red's, which is also in town. While both restaurants each has its own fanfare, Alston's is known for its finer chopped pork.

Can't-Miss Menu Item: Hush puppies

Monday-Thursday, 10:45 a.m.-8 p.m. Friday, 10:45 a.m.-8:30 p.m. Closed Saturday and Sunday.
