    Excellent food. Meggsican wrap sauce is a bit too hot and not enough tomato. Great cocktails for brunch - all in a pint glass for $4.95. Grits are to die for.

    For all the vegetarians/vegans out there: don't order the BBQ Tofu burrito. Personally, I thought it was really gross. Also apparently the veggie burger patty is not vegan (contains cheese).
  • Kevin H.

    Same as the others: get the creamy grits. Also, the biscuits are not to be underrated, especially with the apple/cranberry(?) butter, and the fried mac and cheese and anything with the tomato aioli.

    Despite their appearance, the lava cakes are delicious. And make sure to get a biscuit, mostly to go wild with the accompanying apple butter.

    I really didn't like this place. The steak was awful and the biscuits were stale. The only decent part of my meal was the eggs. Also expect to wait in line for a table for at least 15 mins. 3/10
