On the way home from vacation, we took a detour from I-16.
We traveled the by-ways of Middle Georgia and visited Metter, GA,
home of Michael Quido, the sower.
We stopped for a bite.
I can never resist an establishment that waves an American flag in any form or fashion.
I do love the red painted planter!
We were greeted with a chalkboard welcome and bench as we waited to be seated. There was not a vacant seat in the house! Must be doing something right. Hummmm.
The place was very quaint and appealing.
Who-can-eat-the-most contest like you see on The Food Channel: Man verses Food needs to visit.
Our server said that they were indeed becoming popular in TV land.
Honey Boo-Boo Child from TLC's Toddlers and Tiaras will be visiting this week. Sorry, but I was embarressed to learn that she lives in a neighboring county in Georgia. Yikes!
I asked the owner if I could get a photo of his pig. It's a treasure for sure-made of the chalk plaster of my grandmother's day.
I forgot to ask if these tags were significant in any way. Maybe the owner lived in these states or maybe they came from various customers who patronized PaPa Buck's.
Can't live in Georgia and not know about the Bulldogs and the newest mascot, Russ. He must have stopped in!
The walls are full of sports history-Georgia sports that is. Featured here is the Atlanta Journal of Smoltz and Olsen celebrating Atlanta Braves' Big 1991 that put them in the World Series.
By far, the best BBQ I have ever eaten!
Watch for Papa Buck's BBQ on TLC.
As far the other show, don't tell anyone I am from Georgia
