Doe’s Eat Place – Greenville, MS

Walking in the screened front door of Doe’s Eat Place, we immediately assumed we had made a mistake – we were standing in the kitchen, right next to the grill.  We asked and they waved us through to the second kitchen – where the salads, toast and fries were made – and a lady asked […]

The Liquor Store – Memphis, TN

We received a supplemental magazine in the mail with our monthly Atlanta Magazine that highlighted some spots around the South, with an eight page spread on Memphis.  My dear wife found a picture of a breakfast, served at the Liquor Store, and suggested to me that we might want to check it out. In town […]

Southern Star – Chattanooga, TN

Coming home from a cross-Tennessee drive on the “World’s Longest Yard Sale” (check it out – 690 miles of yard sales, from Gadsden, AL to Addison, MI), we hit Chattanooga, just in time for a late dinner.  Several months (maybe years) back, I heard from a friend who moved to Chattanooga about Southern Star.  We […]

Tonight’s first dinner comes to you courtesy of an article from the July 2011 issue Travel and Leisure, called “The United States of Deliciousness”.  In it, the chef at Beef & Barley raved about the Philly cheesesteak at Yum’s II.  He said it was the best cheesesteak, outside of Philly.  Challenge accepted. In town for […]

Tom + Chee – Kennesaw, GA 

Over the last ten months, I’ve eaten at two different Tom+Chee restaurants, on three different occasions.  Ever since I was a kid, I’ve LOVED grilled cheese and tomato soup together and thought the idea of a restaurant focused on that pairing was brilliant.  These guys got their big start on Shark Tank and have now […]
