We love restaurants with titles like Ike’s Hot Chicken, Fish and More. They cut to the chase, yet include the intriguing “and more.”

In this case, that means more food for your buck — this is the place to go for Southern classics on a dime. Breakfast platters range from $6 to $9 and include items like shrimp and grits and a pork chop with gravy. There are breakfast sandwiches too, which run just $2.50. A lengthy array of a la carte items means you can pick and choose until your heart and stomach is content.

Lunch is cheap too. Beyond the $4.99 daily special, you can rely on two pieces of fried chicken and a side for just $2.99. Upgrade to four pieces or get a cheeseburger and your lunch is still under $5. Ike’s runs the gamut of classic seafood platters in just about every combination of shrimp, fish, scallops, and crab you could want.

Nudging up next to Hello My Name … is BBQ at 616 Meeting Street, this new addition gives us two down South, home-cooking options right next door to each other. Ike’s is open for breakfast, lunch and (late!) dinner from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m.
