Hardly bigger than a food truck, with no indoor seating whatsoever (but two picnic tables outdoors), the Come N Get It Grill serves low-priced food that is a cut above. It’s proletarian fare — nothing fancy; but neither is any of it pre-fab junk.

One-third pound burgers are the signature dish. They’re rugged and full-flavored, especially when festooned with cheese and/or bacon and a full array of condiments (mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickle & onion). The bun’s a bore, but what’s inside is a pleasure. Likewise the pork chop, for which the bun really is nothing more than a vehicle for getting it to your mouth. It’s available grilled, but fried is the way to go, yielding a crisp gold coat that matches so well with the piggy pillow it envelops.

Also from the fry kettle come hand-breaded chicken tenders, flounder fillets, country-fried steak, and crunchy onion rings. There are French fries, too, and I think they’re good — crinkle-cuts, vividly seasoned — but I can’t be certain because I had mine smothered with chili and cheese. It’s not a bad combo, but the fries are overwhelmed and it does require a fork and plenty of napkins. This chili and cheese pairing would be good on a hot dog, which the menu bills as “all meat.” I don’t think that means all beef. I like this neat-as-a-pin little joint enough to come back and see for certain.

Hephzibah, whose name comes from the Old Testament (referring to Jerusalem) is a small crossroads town not far from the road to Waynesboro. It has a dollar store or two, a gym, a grocery, a post office, some gas stations, and several churches. It also is home to Roadfood favorite, Dennis’ BBQ.
