BISHOP’S MEAT & THREE
The Bishop family has a knack for the restaurant business—Nick Bishop started out working at Morrison’s Cafeteria, where his father was the CEO. He eventually decided to open his own place, and Bishop’s Meat & Three was born. This cafeteria-style restaurant dishes out delicious Southern fare, and the Creole Meatloaf is a customer favorite. Studded with chunks of celery, onions, and bell pepper, this meatloaf is full of the robust flavor that only the holy trinity of cooking can yield.

This Dallas-area staple has been dishing out meatloaf since the day it opened its doors. One of only five meals that have been on the menu since 1971, Celebration’s meatloaf is a legend among its customers. With a choice of a tomato sauce with cheese and scallions or a creamy mushroom sauce, this is a slice of delicious Southern comfort you’re sure to love.

CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA
Located in Charlotte’s historic Plaza Midwood neighborhood, Dish has a menu that reflects the diversity of the South, with options inspired from Cajun food as well as Southern mainstays. Its tasty meatloaf has a spicy Cajun kick, and while you can get a classic plate with a side of mashed potatoes, it’s hard to pass up the sandwich version, where the meatloaf is grilled, topped with cheese, and served with Duke’s mayonnaise on white bread.
