A Box Lunch You'll Long Remember
Experience culinary time travel—and classic southern flavors. Box lunches include a chicken salad, Smithfield ham or pimento cheese sandwich (among other choices), potato salad, cheese wafer, deviled egg, and a famous upside down iced cupcake, all packed in cardboard boxes tied with string, just as they have been since the 1920s. Try their lemon chess tart, too.

Boxed Lunch at Sally Bell's Kitchen
Sally Bell’s boxed lunch is $8.25 and has five components: sandwich, potato or macaroni salad, deviled egg, cheese wafer and upside-down cupcake. Both times I’ve gotten the chicken salad, which is great, but I’ve been wanting to try the pimiento cheese and creamed cheese + olive. They also have ham, roast beef, corned beef spread, turkey, egg salad and turkey sandwiches. I can’t eat an egg cold, so I stay away from the deviled eggs and try to barter it with a lunch mate. To finish the meal off, I always get the chocolate devil’s food cupcake. The portions always seems to be just enough, filling but not overwhelming.
