Down home country cooking with some great barbecue too. If you don't happen to be in town around eating time, stop by and get some hand-squeezed lemonade. Either way you will be pleased.

Bell Buckle over the past few years has become the place to go if you are shopping for that unique gift.
As the chamber of commerce brochure says, 'There is just one Bell Buckle - an enchanting mix of antiques, artists, artisians and more characters per square foot than the law allows. Shops, antique malls and great food just minutes off I-24.'
Among the stores you will find a country store, a bookstore, a craft shop, and even a museum.
