Home Grown is a very popular Reynoldstown spot. I was able to get in on a Saturday morning because I arrived early, fresh off a redeye. But any later and the parking lot is likely to be full. Quite frankly, although I enjoyed my meal, the restaurant seemed like an urban version of Cracker Barrel, a heightened-reality version of a Southern restaurant, complete with a Southern knick-knack gift shop.
I ordered two items: a veggie omelet and an order of biscuits and gravy. The omelet was fluffy and rich, with creamy cheese for added richness. The cheese grits that came with it were pretty darn perfect. When I turned to the biscuits, I found the gravy to be very thin, although nicely flavored with porky sweetness.
