My apologies to the "Stones" for the Header[;)]
I live in the Metro Atlanta area now, but I am originally from a small town in East TN, near Knoxville. AND I LOVE TO EAT! LOL
I chanced across "Roadfoods" and it is a true gift. I am really poor at remembering names but I here are a few places of excellence that I can remember right off the top of my head.
TIME OUT DELI aka JERUSALEMS LOT- Knoxville, TN
Whenever I visit back home I have to go here. The best deli…. Period. They also specialize in Middle East/Lebanese foods. The King Solomons Chicken being one of my favorites.
Heberts Cafe in Houma, LA.
I hope they are still in business…. Last time I was there was 3 years ago. I have been going there since 1978. Wonderful lunch menu,serving good traditional Cajun and and seafood. The Catfish Hebert is to die for.
Finchers BBQ Macon, Ga. I only go to the one on Houston Ave. It is the original and the best. Good Pork BBQ with a vinegar sauce. Brunswick Stew will make you "smack yo mama"
My brother and I have hit just about every small mom and pop Lobster Pound/restaurant in Maine….. But I cant remember a darn one of them by name. I do remember one in Biddeford Pool that was exceptional.
Pizza… Big Ed’s in Oak Ridge, TN and Mama Mia’s in Kingston, TN. I will have to give Mama Mia’s the nod.
French Frys, The Katahdin Inn in Millinocket, Me. I know, I know, ALL THE FRENCH FRYS IN MAINE ARE GOOD.. But these….. A huge dish of frys, covered in cheddar cheese and then topped with brown gravy….
Seafood.. Florida… The Hut, in Apalachicola. It just dont get no fresher than this people. It is located just west of downtown on the outskirts of the "city". Dont waste your time on the tourist restaurants downtown.
I camp at St. George Island State Park every year and the first thing I do is buy a bushel bag of oysters before I cross over to the Island. "I like to help pathe the park with oyster shells"
Enough for now, I have a lot of reading to do on this site[;)]
