They have the best shrimp and grits I have had outside of Savannah Georgia! My favorite meal. Boxcar 40 is now my favorite place to eat! Garlic Kale on top of the grits was fantastic. Not a big crab dip person but I ate a ton of it as it is the best I've ever had. I WILL BE BACK again  and again!

The burgers were good but part of our order was missing and the fries weren't what I had expected from what I had seen online.

The food here was amazing.

Food was amazing, deviled eggs were the best I’ve ever had, service was great, the outdoor dining was closed because of the weather so we ate inside but felt that the distancing & COVID precautions were very good.

I usually don't start out with this, but the service was excellent! The food had interesting combinations and additions but all were pretty good. We had pork ribs and steak. Both were prepared very well.

Fantastic. Brisket was a little dry but the three dipping sauces made up for it. Pork belly was tender as could be. Mac and cheese appetizer with brisket was enough for my fiance as a meal. Highly recommend. So ready to go back and try more stuff. Staff was very friendly and laid back.
