12/20/2016 – Southern Restaurants


Welcome to Five Course Trivia! Five days a week, we’ll post five questions about something from the culinary world, from soup to nuts and all dishes in between.

Let’s go to the tape for another F/D question!

Learned League precedent (LL71, MD23) – What food, common as grits or as the main ingredient in posole, is dried or hulled and alkaline-treated maize kernels? Its name is derived from Algonquian, as it was one of the first foods accepted by English settlers from native North Americans.

If you remember March’s Breakfast edition, you might remember this question:


The answer is still “hominy”, and I go 7 for 10 for the season. I’m not interested in writing more questions on corn or cornmeal, so how about tangentially discussing Southern restaurants? Enjoy y’all!

1. Bojangles’ chicken (seen in today’s cover photo) specializes in chicken with what type of seasoning? I had some of this fine chicken just yesterday.

2. Give any of the three C-words that have been edited out of this Waffle House menu. I think I mentioned on this site earlier this year, but I have had the hashbrowns “All The Way” this year.

Question 2

3. This is a screenshot from the website of which restaurant, which I most recently dined at this Saturday?

Question 3

4. Complete this Chick-fil-a slogan: “We Didn’t Invent the Chicken….”

5. What restaurant name has been edited out of this photo? Note that the name of the city changes depending where in NC, SC, KY, GA, or VA you’re visiting? I recommend the Cheerwine float as a great finale to your dinner here.

Question 5

6. The only restaurant on this list I haven’t ever eaten at God knows how many times, this is the logo of what burger chain, centered in San Antonio?

Question 6

7. Can you order a pancake at Waffle House?


1. Cajun
2. Chunked, Capped, Country
3. Zaxby’s
4. Just the Chicken Sandwich
5. Cook Out
6. Whataburger
7. No, just waffles
