Yardbird Southern Table & Bar puts a sophisticated spin on classic Southern specialties without taking away their Dixie souls. Located in the heart of South Beach, Yardbird has grown a loyal following among foodies and chefs since its opening in Fall of 2011. Its success has been such that the owners have since opened a second joint out in Vegas. Despite the casual setting, scoring a spot for supper can prove daunting, but it is worth fighting for. Yardbird's chicken biscuits, sweet-tea brined ribs, and macaroni and cheese leave guests weak in the knees, but everyone knows they're most famous for their not-to-be-missed chicken and waffles (cheddar cheese-topped waffles and fried chicken served with bourbon maple syrup and a hot honey sauce, with a side of spiced fresh watermelon). To boot, the impressive bourbon selection reels in its own loyal sect of sipping connoisseurs.

- Best for Homestyle Because: Alright, so technically Yardbird's cuisine is slightly higher grade than your average home, but they still play on old homestyle comforts to provide unforgettable dishes.
- Best for Brunch Because: Yardbird's flavorful fare has long been a hit with locals, garnering endorsements from folks like world-traveler and chef Anthony Bourdain. How could we say no?
