I found a great place in the tiny town of Edom, TX (west of Tyler) last October. Place is called The Shed, and it was awesome. Rustic, yet clean and neat as a pin. Real home cooking.
They don’t have a menu; they just write what’s available that day on a chalkboard (no prices are posted, either). I got one of their breakfasts which included two perfectly cooked eggs, a big thick slab of ham, two biscuits, gravy (tasted homemade), and all the coffee I could drink. [:p]
I went to the counter to pay, and she said, "That’ll be $4.02". !!! I about fell over.
Sheesh! That would be worth the cost in gas from Dallas to go there for breakfast. Good find!
