Enjoyed some Velvet Cream, aka "The Dip" burgers and ice cream on a beautiful April evening. It's one of those small town walk up ice cream places that seem to dot the towns here in the South. If you're ever in Memphis, take the short twenty minute drive just south of town to Hernando, MS and check them out. Anyone else have a hometown favorite eats place that you're willing to share?

I'll get back to you tomorrow when the sun comes up. This kind of thread is really good stuff, Vol!

I did eat once at a place called Hard Knox Cafe near you in Como. But I live in California, so I will get you some fish shack art soon.

BBQ..

Coopers BBQ in Llano, Texas. Joe Allens, in Abilene, Texas. There are many more excellent BBQ places throughout Texas. I don't recall all the names, just the cities in many cases. Remember, when searching for BBQ. No neon signs and look for a run down looking building!

Hometown favorite is Wunsche Bros, in Spring, Texas. Not BBQ, but good chicken fried steak. Be careful though fellas. Lots of antique and craft stores right there too (sadly, not hobby shops).

Interesting! I know of a steak place in Como that the locals love; I don't know if it might be the same place...Road trip!

Peoria Illinois has a place called Avantis.  It is an Italian restaurant, and fairly inexpensive, and has the most wonderful sweet Italian bread and wonderful sandwiches called gondolas.  Grew up eating Avantis, and the owner went to the same church I went to.
