    For dinner, pork stew was light but hardy, unique and flavorful, seasoned perfectly. Fried chicken, 2 tiny, dry enough to cut gums pieces w a stale biscuit bordered b/w an insult and a rip off.

    The perfect atmosphere for brunch, and the food is delicious! The "gobble-cado" sandwich is one of my favorites. The cheddar jalapeño grits are a must have.

    Gobblecado. It's a sandwich of smoked turkey with creamy avocado and a chili mayo that does a great job of perking up those mild flavors; Cotija cheese adds the perfect salty bite.

    Order the Grassroots Sour cocktail. It's the single best cocktail in NYC.

    We can't get enough of the build-your-own-biscuit breakfast sandwiches to cure our weekend hangovers. Order what we order: egg, sausage, cheese and red eye gravy.

    Here for brunch? The fried chicken sandwich is a must. The BLT was meh, but the cinnamon donut made up for it. Drinks are poured with a heavy hand, especially the Bloody Mary's.

    The fried chicken is excellent. The biscuit is dry and crumbly.

    Love the look and feel of this place! The food here is pretty delish (maybe a little over priced)! The service, however, is just plain awful. They disappoint me every time.

    Try the Texas 75! Refreshing & delish!

    Ask for the special burger. It's not on the menu, but it's delicious and heaped with bacon. Oh, and the fries get swapped out for some ridiculously good homemade tater tots.

    Andrew Del-Colle · June 15, 2013
  • Jannae

    Bring your own ketchup. This sir Kensington stuff they give you tastes like marinara sauce. I hope this is not some new "gourmet" trend.

    I had the Fried Chicken Sandwich. Just the right lunch in size and quality. Excellent taste!
