Saucy's Walk-Up's staff invites ambling diners to the window carved into a repurposed shipping container for walk-up orders of tender meats and sides bathing in homemade sauces. Mix and match quarter-pound bun stockers of pork, chicken, and beef before filling in flavor profiles with generous side helpings of potato salad, coleslaw, or a sweet bean trio's flavor medley. Sweet and fizzy soft drinks rinse away any residual vapidity of the palate, just as napkins wipe away any crumbs or napkins stuck to cheeks.

When shooting on-location, some extras and production-crew members for the movie Lincoln searched for a place with Southern hospitality in which to unwind between takes. They found it in The Bistro at Market and Grove—alongside a tapestry of Southern charm.

Nestled in a small one-story house, The Bistro's casually eclectic interior—self-described as "shabby chic"—is filled with charming antiques and other homey touches such as mismatched plates. Each day, the dining room, bar area, and seasonal outdoor patio fill with culinary aromas that conjure both the European countryside and the coastal American south. The chefs add punch to burgers with toppings of artichoke or spicy sautéed shrimp, drape chicken in garlic or zesty orange sauce, and drizzle beef medallions in a glaze of brandy-peppercorn reduction. Though they often devise seasonal specials, they always showcase dishes based on their signature crab-cake recipe.
