I mentioned nothing about dinner in my review, nor did I mention the establishment's hours of operation. If you have an issue with that, I suggest you take it up with Hominy Grill, not me!!!

We had no reservation but called just before heading over to make sure the line wasn’t long. We didn’t have to wait at all.
