Check Out Red Star Southern's Tongue-in-Cheek Instagram

New trailer Red Star Southern might be slinging biscuits and fried chicken, but owner Erica Waksmunski hasn't forgotten her background as a pastry chef at Congress and other lauded restaurants. Red Star Southern's Instagram account pokes fun at the conventions of fine dining, from a "chef's table" set up next to the trailer to a pot of mac n' cheese studded with edible flowers. The trailer's kinda-mascot Ol' Shitter Jim even has his own Instagram account, which features beautifully plated guns.

Red Star Southern opened this Sunday with a hilarious opening trailer. They'll be closed until Thursday, July 24, when they'll resume normal hours.
