Man, was I stuffed and my bro even ate more than I did. How many times has that been said at The Beaver House over the years?

Yesterday, I made a quick run down to Statesboro to pick up a brand new order of notebooks from Randy Lewis at Lewis Color. This is embarrassing but I got lost leaving Waynesboro. Instead of taking 25 going south to Millen, I took another turn off the bypass at Waynesboro and after a couple of more turns ended up in Sardis. My, navigation system (aka my wife) was on the phone with me while she checked out Google Maps online back at the ranch. Sardis does have police so don’t think you can bust it through there.

The family finally sat down to lunch (here’s the menu) at The Beaver House by about 1:30 p.m. The crowd had thinned out and we had a friendly college girl wait on us. After getting some sweet tea in a real glass, here comes the homemade biscuits, the mashed potatos (and gravy…chicken or steak…I don’t know), green beans, macaroni and cheese, butter beans, and some country fried steak and fried chicken that will give your Mama’s a run for the money, honey.

Mrs. Sue and Clay are cookin’ up this grub everyday. Make sure you’re hungry.

Matthews Cafeteria – Good Comfort Food

Today was unusual in that I met my brother-in-law for lunch at Matthews Cafeteria in Tucker, Georgia.  We have hardly ever gotten together in 19 years and he said he owed me for lunch although I could not remember the last time I had bought him a meal.  Anyway, he was adamant about it so I agreed even though I had asked him to meet.

Matthews was, in the last year, on one of the Food Network shows, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.  You can guess which one it qualified under.  After getting berated by my brother-in-law for getting a big piece of baked fish instead of country-fried steak, we found a table and caught up with each other’s lives.  I had fried okra, greens, scalloped potatoes, and tea.  It was all good and the workers were friendly.  Here’s an article from the AJC about the show and filming at the landmark restaurant.
