The inside of that place looks like what I remember where we were. It was pretty late in the day I guess when we stopped.

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

The Old Mill in St Vincient arkansas is a good one. Im pretty sure me and a couple others guys from the rig kept her in business. Good cheeseburgers and ribs on saturdays. If the old womans working though you might as well let her just cook up what ever she wants for you cause the order will be wrong anyway.

My rule of thumb when traveling is if there are cops, emts, or utility workers trucks in the parking lot the food is pretty good. Any of these can pretty much eat wherever they want, so the food must be pretty good and not too high.

AC, she sold in 1998. Have you ever ate at the Seminole Inn in Indian town? She managed it in the late 70's early 80's.

Won't work in these areas anymore. Usually only one cafe per town and they can't be kept open.

Circle M Barbeque at the sale barn in Eastland Tx is good. They have a jalepena sourdough bun that is really good. Jake & Dorothy's in Stephenville, Tx is good.

Great home cooked food in there. You bring my little buddy down to see me some time and I'll take you to eat there.
