Fodor's Expert Review Hominy Grill

$$ North of Broad American

The wooden barber poles from the last century still frame the door of this homespun café and Lowcountry landmark. Chef Robert Stehling is a Carolina boy who lived in New York; that dichotomy shows in his "uptown" comfort food. Chalkboard specials are often the way to go here, whether you are visiting for breakfast or lunch. From the tempting catfish po-boy to the andouille-adorned Lowcountry shrimp bog, it's understandable if you over-order.
