The Whole Ox Deli officially opened this morning at 327 Keawe St. and the foodies were out in droves to see, and taste, firsthand, what Robert McGee has in store for us.

Most of us have been waiting for this since November, when McGee finished the last of his Plancha pop-up dinners to prepare for this endeavor.

And, he didn't disappoint. The BBK smoked pork sandwich I had was delicious, and there are beet, caprese and tossed green salads for lesser cavemen.

Of course, because it was packed with foodies, sandwiches were slow to materialize. For whatever reason, restaurants that are overnight successes never anticipate being among the overnight successes, so they're never prepared to be swamped, when, from my side, it's always seems to be a no-brainer. Especially when The Whole Ox rates a whole 10 on a scale of how much I want to eat there.
