ACME Southern Kitchen

NOTE: This establishment has closed. This page remains for historical records.

Specializing in traditional southern fare, Acme delivers on flavor without getting too caught up in cultural tropes. The clean, well-lit restaurant could get by serving any style food with the same focus on quality, it just might not be as fun to order.
