Hugh-Baby’s, Nashville TN

It was a strange little road trip that had me planning to visit a popular restaurant only to switch and visit a different place with the same owner. Continue reading “Hugh-Baby’s, Nashville TN”

Cori’s DogHouse, Mt. Juliet TN

When we were in Nashville in November, our friends encouraged us to visit a popular hot dog restaurant with more than three dozen regional specialties. A couple of months later, we took the long detour and were rewarded with a really fun supper. Continue reading “Cori’s DogHouse, Mt. Juliet TN”

Farewell Atlanta 2: Martin’s

A couple of months ago, Drew from Man Up Texas BBQ tweeted that he’d driven 45 minutes for breakfast at Milo’s, a Birmingham-area fast food chain, and asked to be told if there was a better chicken biscuit anywhere. I immediately complied. Atlanta’s Martin’s chain has the best chicken biscuits of any chain in the south. Continue reading “Farewell Atlanta 2: Martin’s”

The detour to Amory really was a big one. Even outside the time spent at the two restaurants, it added more than an hour to the drive, as we rolled lazily along US-278 through the small Alabama towns of Sulligent and Guin before rejoining I-22. The connection between I-22 and I-65 is still not quite complete, but it felt like they have done some work repaving those streets that connect the two – Coalburg and Daniel Payne – because I certainly remembered those roads being very, very well traveled and *full* of potholes, but they’re not bad now.

Frankfurt Döner & Meats, Ball Ground GA

In 1993, Detley Werner and his family moved from Germany to the United States, and made their way to the small town of Ball Ground, where they opened a butcher shop that also sells sandwiches and a really huge variety of smoked sausages. I’d first heard of his shop a couple of years ago, but we hadn’t been up the I-575 corridor in quite some time and never found an opportunity to go visit. A couple of months ago, however, I got a craving to visit Amicalola Falls, near Dawsonville, a trip which would take us right by his place. Continue reading “Frankfurt Döner & Meats, Ball Ground GA”
