Opened in 1977, this local institution was not actually on our radar, but it proved a good substitute when the place that we wanted to try up and shut down on us.
Marie missed out on my visit to this place a couple of years ago, but it sounded so neat that when the chance came for her and the children to give it a try, we stopped by for sandwiches and desserts.
To make up for a less-than-happy vacation, we asked the girlchild what she would like for supper. She picked pizza, giving us the opportunity to visit one of the other locations of this excellent local chain, and for me to sneak a bottle of Pure Soda.
Things get silly in today’s chapter, in which we find yet another reason – slash – excuse to keep eating at the same restaurants whenever we’re up this direction. The barbecue is very good but the banana pudding is even better at this converted gas station.
Get your kicks on Route 411? Doesn’t quite have the same ring to it, really….
I had a pretty good feeling that Marie would okay this two-day trip. All that I had to do was say, “And then for breakfast, we could go to that crêpe place downtown that you like,” and she said “Sold, when do we leave?”
Two businesses, each began 68 years ago, and two very different experiences. One has changed locations half a dozen times and one has been a neighborhood icon since its inception as a grocery store.
Shag music and Andy Griffith have been welcoming guests to this popular dive for a quarter of a century. They’ve been coming back for the really good pulled pork and variety of interesting sauces.
This small chain leads the fast food industry in observable metrics like efficiency and speed. But what really matters to us is that they lead the industry in fun and silly design. We just had to stop by one of these stores.
Our original plans to visit west Tennessee had to be postponed, so we went to east Tennessee instead. First up: a legendary barbecue destination that lived up to the hype.
Neapolitan-style pies as well as New York-style? This popular restaurant has flexed its muscles and done something quite unique, in our experience, by serving both. And they’re wonderful.
Is this the best burger in the Scenic City? Commenters at a couple of blogs that we enjoy seem to think so. We made a detour on our way home to give it a try.
We don’t often have traditional breakfasts when we’re taking road trips, but when we do, we like to visit places as fun and as tasty as this popular joint in East Nashville.
Previously, I’d mentioned that some hot chicken I had ordered turned out to not be so hot. That’s okay. The hot barbecue sauce at this late-night carry-out window was enough to make up for it.
