Great menu Locally sourced food is a HUGE plus for us Had the chicken sandwich (local chickens) and I consider myself to be very judgemental when it comes to fried chicken and this chicken is top tier. Crispy outside, juicy and tender inside not dripping...More

Love Homegrown and have been coming here for years. Wish we had a traditional breakfast plate that would come with potatoes or grits. By having to breakdown our order with sides it was $27 for 2 if us.
