While hanging out for the weekend in metro Montgomery, one of the places I had planned to go to was Martin’s Restaurant.  We had missed the chance when we were here last fall, and I intended not to do so again.  They hit the radar originally with a list of 100 things to eat in […]

Roaming the wilds of east Georgia, we’d been going from small town to smaller town, working our way through antique, thrift and junk stores.  Our lunch destination was the metropolis of Washington.
