55South, named for a stretch of highway near New Orleans, shows off authentic Cajun and Creole cuisine. The restaurant serves up a rich and brimming gumbo as well as a spicy rendition of jambalaya. For a deal, try the $20.12, three-course meal that includes an appetizer, entrée, and dessert. (Our advice: start with JJ’s junk chips, followed by the cochinita pibil, a roasted pork with Yucatan spices and sour orange mojo, and wrap it up with coconut pie.)
