A creative twist on the classic hamburger is 13’s very own Bless Your Heart Burger featuring a half-pound brisket burger, applewood smoked bacon, pimento cheese, lettuce, tomato, and onion straws on a brioche bun.

Popular entrees include rack of lamb, cedar plank salmon, and shrimp ’n’ grits.

For those in search of craft cocktails, check out the Lemon Cream Pie Martini made with Deep Eddy Vodka, lemonade, sweetened condensed milk and graham cracker rim. Or how about a Burberry that combines blackberries with agave nectar and Stoli Vodka? Another favorite is the Spicy Mongoose made with house-infused pepper tequila, passion fruit, fresh lime juice and tamarind drizzle.
