Been to Chuck's numerous times and it never fails to impress. The food is outstanding! Love the Brunswick stew, smoked chicken, seafood gumbo and their desserts! The bananas foster is wonderful. Get there early as it is always crowded.

Hi Amanda, We do not have a milk gravy, only a sausage gravy, which is made fresh from scratch. We do have Egg Beaters and/or egg whites as an option for omelets. If you have any further questions, please let me know.
