So you sit at a table with 9 other people and a hostess, usually a lady from Lynchburg. Food is passed to the left, and you will leave, having talked to everyone at the table.
It is such a wonderful way to meet interesting people. I sat next to the mayor of Nashville and across from three retired teachers. On my left was a retired couple from Detroit driving to New Orleans.
But the best part - the food. wow. True southern style - fried okra is served at every meal. We had meatloaf, creamed corn, coleslaw, corn muffins, chicken pot pie, lima beans, a cheesy potato casserole ( i forget the fancy name), candied apples with that tasted like half a bottle of Jack Daniels in it. For dessert, we had the best chocolate fudge pie, spiked with Jack Daniels' whiskey again. wow.
Must call for recommendations. They get booked up quickly. We called a week in advance for a Monday lunch and we barely got in.
