Cafeterias seem to be enduringly popular in the south for some reason.
(Freestanding ones, not part of any institution.) Curious after seeing
an ad for Picadilly's on some nostalgia TV network, I found the
northernmost one was near St. Louis. (Odder still, all Picadilly's
outlets were in former slave states.) The one that sticks in my mind
is Luby's, because of the Texas massacre at one.
