Do not expect fancy--this place is as plain as a flour sack apron, and the food is genuinely good.
The brunch menu has all the usual suspects: eggs, home fries, pancakes, etc., and all of them are cooked beautifully. The shocker, however, at least for a woman partially raised on French food, is the Biscuits with Sausage Gravy--Northerners beware--this stuff looks predigested, but oh, my: Jason's bechamel is as silky and elegant as anything you'll find in France--then he adds spicy sausage crumbles with just the right amount of heat and pours the whole mess over the fluffiest biscuits in Charlottesville. His lunch menu is full of BBQ love--pig and chicken--and he does interesting riffs on the classic club, too. The dinner menu is changing, and new offerings will include classic fried chicken and waffles (with real maple syrup), chicken-fried steak, and I am praying he keeps his scallion and cheese-laden shrimp and grits. Don't miss the fabulous brussels sprouts--the only "avoid" is the lackluster side salad, but who comes to eat country food and orders uncooked greens? Love this place. Such nice people, such great value.
