    Wake up and smell the Lexington-style barbecue, people! Brunch faves are pig grits (with hickory-smoked pork barbecue) and a chicken biscuit, with thigh meat and a generous helping of sausage gravy. Read more

    Trendy spot with delicious Southern food. The fried chicken is not to be missed. If you don't want to wait for a table, you can sit at the bar. Make sure you say hi to Rusty!

    Good not great. Bourbon barrel ale is well worth ordering. Biscuits dry, hush puppies dry, Mac and cheese lacking flavor.

    They only make 12 burgers a night? If they haven't run out yet when you're there, order one. Perfectly cooked, and the fries were great.

    The Griddle Cakes are a solid, decadent choice. Unlike most pancakes. More like dense funnel cake!

    The catfish was served atop a soup-like beans side dish, dampening the otherwise perfectly fried fish. Truly a shame. Fried chicken great, as were biscuits n pepper jelly.

    Great food and great craft beers on tap. Sit at the bar if Rusty is behind it. You'll thank me later.

    The apps are basic, but the entrées were tasty. The catfish's slaw is a perfect pairing. The pie crusts make dessert worth it.

    Well-thought-out beer list and amazing pork chops creatively paired with seasonal fruits. Definitely satiated by the deep fried bread pudding. Oh, and they offer mind-blown pickled peanuts. Perfecto!

    Food is kind of disappointing. BBQ plate in particular got old after the first few of bites. Hushpuppies not flavorful and a bit dry. Sure hope brunch is better..

    A hike from union square but well-worth. Griddle cakes rock!

    Great beer selection on tap. The Carolina-style barbecue is delicious and my, oh my, buttermilk pie. 😍

    The burger is topped with whiskey cheddar, remoulade on a brioche bun, and only a dozen are served each night—get there early if you want one.

    Inspired by the proprietor's southern upbringing, there's Carolina-style pulled pork, Brunswick stew, a fry basket with shrimp and okra, cornmeal crusted catfish, and, of course, fried chicken. Read more
