Sure, by all means check it out if you pass through that way again. It’s Southern boarding house style, lunch only I think. I believe JD shows up as a backdrop in one or two of the dishes. Check out the early 90s edition of Roadfood for a write-up.
No, I didn’t eat in Lynchburg. It was a cold, drizzly day, and taking that tour and then not being able to buy a "sample" anywhere made me head back toward Nashville. [}:)]
Next time I’m back, though, I’ll be happy to try Mary Bobo’s, if you recommend it.
