Founded by married couple Jason and Carolyn Roy in 2013, the popular establishment has since been featured in the New York Times, Food & Wine and more, says the business on its website, and has grown to include several additional locations throughout the Carolinas. 

Come try signature sides like Sriracha maple sausage, coconut-stewed callaloo collards and pimento cheese grits; along with specialty dishes like The Greenvillain — a biscuit topped with country fried pork steak, jalapeño cream cheese, bacon gravy, a sunny side-up egg and pickled jalapeños.
