A good 20-minute drive away from Emory’s main campus, situated down Moreland Ave. past Little Five Points, Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand is an adorably designed late-night institution that combines creative cuisine with down-home Southern cooking. The only meat on the menu is chicken sausage, but oh, the things they do with that sausage — smother it in cheese, BBQ sauce, sauerkraut, chili and more cheese. They’ve perfected the art of the “cupcake shake,” which just involves throwing a couple of homemade cupcakes and some ice cream into a blender. I grew up way south of the Mason-Dixon line and never experienced a Sweet Tea Slush (really, just a great brew of sweet tea in slushie ice) until I tried Delia’s. With the first sip, I felt like 20 years of my life had passed me by.
