Shifting to curbside service at the pandemic’s onset, owner-chef Jon Bonnell became a local hero for bountiful, comforting, family-style meals to take home. Though now open for inside dining, the curbside deal—a steal at $40, serving four people—remains in place. Order this to go: Monday through Saturday, the day’s meal is posted early in the morning on the website and Facebook page. Favorites (for very good reason) are the shrimp and grits with andouille sausage and poblano chiles, served with cornbread and chocolate brownies; the fried chicken with cream gravy, mashers, Mississippi green beans, buttermilk biscuits, and white chocolate macadamia cookies; and the chicken Marsala with white cheddar polenta, green beans, yeast rolls, and chocolate Bundt cake. Green salads come with all meals. Pro tip: Curbside meals are first come, first served. Pickup begins at 3:30 p.m., and they sell out fast. The long line is worth the wait. Other possibilities are often available at curbside, including ribeyes and tenderloins for grilling at home, cocktail kits, and Melt Ice Creams.
