The little brown specks in the Parmesan cheese grits are not bacon, but they taste similar. They are melty Gouda cheese.

Pig tails are a joy to gnaw, worrying each little piece for equal amounts of meat and melt-in-the-mouth fat.

Pulled Pork, from the smoker out in front of the restaurant, is laced with just enough tangy sweet sauce to coax out all its fine piggy flavor.

Pork chops are thin but intensely porky, almost like great slabs of lean bacon. They are smothered in a long-simmered brown sauce with onions and peppers.
