The World’s Best Cornbread Sandwich Is Made Daily Inside This Humble Little Texas Restaurant
Not just the best, but quite possibly the only such concoction in the world. If you live in Texas and have yet to try a Kornbread Sandwich from Kitt’s, you’ve been missing out to say the least. See what all the hype is about:
The owner of Kitt's came up with the idea of a cornbread sandwich at the ripe old age of 8. She saw leftover cornbread from the night before on the kitchen counter and decided to see how it would taste with ham & cheese in between - and thus, a legacy was born.
Located in a historic 1880s building in downtown Jefferson, the restaurant has gone through many changes over the years. It was originally called "Jefferson's House of Pies," but the owners renamed it upon realizing that the Kornbread Sandwich was the star of the show.
There are nine different varieties of the sandwich, some cold and others hot. Whether you're a simple ham + American cheese kind of person or like to jazz it up with pastrami and provolone, there's something for every palate on the menu.
Try this interesting take on a Texas classic, with a heaping scoop of chili piled high between two slices of jalapeno cornbread. You'll definitely need a fork, but it still qualifies as a sandwich in our book. Plus, the messiest foods are often some of the most delicious.
You can even get it as a burger! Add a cup of broccoli slaw or soup and you have yourself a hearty, down-home meal fit for a Texas-sized appetite.
As with many small-town Texas restaurants, leaving without a slice of pie would be criminal. Kitt's bakes over 15 varieties daily, from buttermilk to pecan and everything in between. The bread pudding with amaretto sauce is supposed to be a real winner.
So if you're looking for a place where history, innovation, deliciousness, and good old-fashioned Southern hospitality all converge, look no further than Kitt's Kornbread Sandwiches. We guarantee you've never had a meal quite like this.
Kitt’s is located at 125 N. Polk St., Jefferson, TX 75657.
