Stax’s Original Restaurant – Greenville, SC

After an afternoon chasing the Great Eclipse of 2017, we were back into the middle of a hot August afternoon and were making plans for the evening.  We had viewed the celestial event over in Pendleton and then went into Greenville for some late afternoon shopping.  Dinner time came around and I remembered in an […]

Scotty’s Soul Food – Midland, TX

Landing at Midland Air & Space* Port, I was confronted with lunch choices: chicken fried steak?  Or barbecue?  I decided on the former and asked the young lady at the car rental counter, “Who has the best chicken-fried steak in Midland or Odessa?”  She answered, without hesitation, “Scotty’s Soul Food.” Decision made.  I plugged the […]

Waikikie Hawaiian Barbecue – Atlanta, GA

Several times over the last six or eight months, as I worked my way from North Druid Hills toward Virginia-Highlands, I passed by Waikikie Hawaiian Barbecue and thought to myself, “I need to try that.”  But I didn’t ever get around to it.  So on this Sunday afternoon, as we were roaming around and dinner […]

Arnold’s Country Kitchen – Nashville, TN

Heading to Nashville for a day of meandering and food, we were heading to my favorite “guitar store” on the planet, Carter Vintage Guitar.  I have had Arnold’s Country Kitchen on my list for several years, since they appeared in Garden-N’-Gun’s “50 Best Southern Foods” in the fall of 2011, and was surprised to find […]

One Flew South – Atlanta, GA

For the last couple of years, I’ve read about how good the food is at One Flew South.  And not just in the local press – the first write-up I remember was in Conde Nast Traveler.  It was even named as a semi-finalist for a James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Service award.  But I never had […]
