Waycross Local Restaurants

You will never go hungry while visiting Waycross, plus we have something for everyone. Whether its fast food, or fine dining, it’s here.
But while you’re here, and if you’re not from around these parts, you should try some of our local food, the Southern influence is prevalent, with traditional items such as fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits available at even the city’s finest dining establishments. After all, you can take the food out of the South, but you can’t always take the South out of the food.

Wherever you eat, you’ll always experience our Southern Hospitality.
