Feed your soul at Carolina Kitchen. With several area locations, customers head to the Hyattsville location for more room and great bar specials.
Start with fried okra or seasonal fried green tomatoes. The menu offers many Cajun entrees, and favorites include the fried chicken, which you can get smothered with gravy and mashed potatoes. The creamy mac and cheese and seasoned collard greens are must-have sides. If you still have room, their homemade desserts are just as tasty — try the sweet potato cake.
Stop by for happy hour from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday with $2 domestic draft beers, $4 martinis, cocktails, margaritas and wine, as well as discounted snacks. Dim lighting and warm colors create a lounge-like vibe, but if you don’t have time to eat in, they also have a cafeteria style carry out section.
