We were glad that we chose this restaurant to eat in. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere was lovely. The interesting thing about this restaurant is that they only serve food that is in season from local farms. Therefore, the menu changes throughout the year. The food preparation is certainly out of the box, but with fresh ingredients and skilled techniques, it was quite delicious. We chose to eat the buttermilk popcorn chicken, the burger and fries. Both the chicken and burger were moist, juicy and flavorful. The fries were hand-cut and yummy. Only thing is that I would have liked to have eaten the burger off of a plate and not a paper tray. Nevertheless, I would return for a meal or just to have drinks.

This quiet little street-side cafe is big on flavor and creativity. Even if the dishes sound simple - a black bean burger - you can expect that it will be packed with flavor and unexpected tastes. The cafe was very comfortable and the service was excellent. We came their intending to just have a cocktail and an appetizer. Both the cocktails and the fried calamari were so delicious that we stayed and kept ordering dishes. The calamari were very tender and lightly breaded and were resting on a bed of smoked yogurt - which was a very unusual but successful pairing. The black bean burger was so satisfying and topped with a fried green tomatoes and a spicy sriracha mayo. The fried green tomatoes were so good that we ordered an entire place of them. Whether you want a light snack and a cocktail or an entree, this place does not disappoint.

Very happy we chose First and South for our only night in town. Wait staff couldn't have been friendlier. Bartender didn't skimp on the alcohol. Buttermilk chicken was fantastic.

If you are looking for something off the main drag, or you just want the best black bean burger and fries you ever ate, go to First and South.
We ate at the bar and the bartender was friendly and knowledgable, and made us a delicious watermelon mojito. A nearby patron recommended the black bean burger so we gave it a try.
This place takes its french fries very seriously, but the burger was equally special. There were a variety of local beers and even wine on tap and the atmosphere was friendly so we stuck around.
