For more than 30 years the Black Eyed Pea has been turning out casual home cooking with a Southern flare for diners looking for a comfortable meal on the cheap. Think mashed potatoes with the skins left on and pot roast slow-simmered until it’s fork tender. They have burgers, fried green tomatoes, meatloaf and enough spinach and artichoke dip to keep the cardiac unit at Baylor profitably employed for the foreseeable future. In fact, there’s a whole section to their menu devoted to chicken, steak and other cuts of meat -- all of it chicken-fried. Don’t stop now. The Black Eyed Pea has you covered for dessert too. The famous Banana A’Pea’l layers rich vanilla custard with fresh bananas, vanilla wafers and tops the whole thing off with whipped cream.
