Over Easy – Birmingham, AL

As the road trip winds to a close, we were looking for breakfast.   I considered a smokehouse that we could see from our hotel room, but googled instead for the best breakfast in Birmingham and found Over Easy was both well rated and close by.  We pulled up to a packed restaurant, in the […]

Big Bad Breakfast – Oxford, MS

“Lard have mercy”.  That’s what it said on the t shirt that I was impulse buying at Big Bad Breakfast, because I found it so punny  (apparently so did Dolly Parton’s manager, as the lady who checked us out told her that he had come in, with Dolly in tow, to purchase one for her).  […]

H Harper Station – Atlanta, GA

Sun In My Belly – Decatur, GA

Looking for a dinner choice for Friday night, it really boiled down to the confluence of the answers to two questions: 1) What sounds good?; and 2) Where can we get a reservation?  When I saw Sun In My Belly appear as a choice on OpenTable, I clicked on the first time slot that we […]
