Hello ChiTown, hope you get this in time. For a (non chain) dinner you could try Pastabilities downtown for pasta, or Tom’s Grill for steak. Tom’s Grill is on US51/Main St southbound, on the left. It is a nice old family owned place popular with locals, the neighborhood looks rough but it is not, the steak and twice baked potato are very good.
For breakfast downtown, try Coney O Kanes at Main & Prairie St, the biscuits and gravy are very good. If you are staying in Forsyth the Skinny’s Diner is a gamble, the Hometown Buffet is good as chain buffets go. For something a bit more roadfood you can go into town to Harolds House of Doughnuts, it is a good little dive but smokey. Good luck!
