Sports Illustrated Senior writer, Andy Staples, recently featured Lamar Lounge in his “What’s Andy Eating?” column on SI.com. Thanks, Andy!
From the article:
“I have paid John Currence several compliments in this space, but none soar higher than this one: I have no idea what kind of sauces Currence offers at Lamar Lounge.

At Lamar Lounge, my pulled pork sandwich and most of my fried okra were devoured before I even gave a passing thought to accompaniment.”
