Benny Cheeks with a side order of smoked gouda grits. Maybe the best grits I have had in my life. The pork cheek dish was spectacular. Also, the ceviche was delicious.

We are planning on meeting up with an old friend for lunch and then visiting for 3 or 4 hours. Can you carry on a conversation when speaking at a normal volume. Is the mid afternoon so busy that they will try to rush us out?

We had a 3 year old with us. It is not a super quiet place which is part of the reason that we chose it. So I think so.
