The lime-bricked soul food joint is steeped in music history. In the old days, Weaver D's proprietor, the boisterous Dexter Weaver, was known for calling out "Automatic for the people!" when orders were up. R.E.M. immortalized the phrase as the title of its 1992 album. The vibe here is super-chill: the setting is understated, the TV often turned to Judge Judy, and the menu full of comfort food like fried chicken and buttered potatoes.
