Simple and perfect, this basic yellow cake with chocolate frosting was every bit as good as Mama Dip's renowned pies.

The Bulloch House features a Southern buffet with country cooking. This restaurant is located just south of the town center of Warm Springs. It is in a house that is over 100 years old and has several rooms that are used as dining areas.

The mainstays of this buffet are fried chicken and fried green tomatoes. There are usually about four entrees that vary daily. These may include baked chicken and dressing, tender and delicious roast beef, chicken and dumplings, baked ham, catfish, tasty chicken livers, and other Southern favorites. If you don’t want the full buffet, ask about the blue plate special which is available for lunch from Monday to Friday. Lots of good vegetables are available at the buffet that may include yummy creamed potatoes, lima beans, carrot soufflé, field peas, fried apples, black-eyed peas, green beans, etc.

There is a small salad bar at the end of the buffet line. Even if you don’t have room for a salad, there usually are sliced tomatoes available at the salad bar which you can get as a side vegetable. The biscuits have a good, old-fashioned taste. Desserts are not included as part of the buffet and must be ordered from the waitress. All are homemade including caramel layer cake, red velvet cake, slices of pie, and more.

There were some transition issues after the original owners sold the restaurant and the restaurant was closed for a brief period. But in March 2011, Peter and Sandy Lampert purchased the Bulloch House. They have done an excellent job of continuing the Southern traditions that made the Bulloch House a favorite destination for locals and tourists alike.

The town of Warm Springs is a historical attraction because of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. He came here often for medical treatments. His retreat was known as the Little White House and this is where he died in 1945.

Note: The Bulloch House is open for lunch seven days a week, but in the evening it is open only on Friday and Saturday. Dinner on Friday features seafood.

The Tastee

Most onions are fried as rings and strings; recently, there has been a trend for whole bulbs to get tossed in the deep-fryer to become “blooming onions”; but as far as we’re concerned, there is nothing better you can do with an onion and hot oil than make onion chips. Chips are a specialty of Tastee Inn & Out, a Sioux City Drive-In that has been run by the Calligan family since the mid-1950s. A chip is vaguely potato-chip shaped, a slim, bite-size piece from one layer of an onion that when battered and fried, makes a snack food / side dish that is simply impossible to stop eating. At Tastee Inn & Out, orders of chips are sold in sizes that range from individual to a party tub; and they are accompanied, as is local custom for all fried onions in Siouxland, by a creamy white dip that is a local cognate of what Utahans know as fry sauce.

The other item on the menu that all visitors need to know about is the Tastee sandwich, this drive-in’s version of the locally popular loosemeats. It is ground beef on a bun, sort of like a fallen-apart hamburger but with extra seasoning in the meat. Tastee’s version bears virtually no resemblance to the ground beef dishes that are known elsewhere in other parts of America as the sloppy Joe (Midwestern), American chop suey (Yankee), New Joe Special (San Francisco Bay), or Cheez-br-gr (southern Indiana). Compared to any of these other presentations, the tastee is veritably Spartan: just meat and seasoning, no sauce at all. (But pickle and onion on top, please! And of course a stratum of melting orange cheese.)

As you might infer from the name of the restaurant, Tastee Inn & Out is a drive-in with a walk-up order window but no seats whatsoever inside. Most people place their orders at a drive-by menu that is equipped with a speaker and microphone and pick them up through the car window farther down the line. There is a picnic table and a large parking lot for in-car dining

Since it opened in 1975, Cliff's has become a choice part of the landscape along Route 46 in Ledgewood, New Jersey, just a hop off I-80. It is a modest-sized drive-in with a large parking lot and a grove of picnic tables in back. Its claim to fame is ice cream – thick and creamy although not so over-the-top butterfatty that you can't easily enjoy two scoops or three one evening, then come back for a skyscraper cone the next day.

Proudest of its dozens of hard ice cream flavors, which range from the familiar to such extravaganzas as Graham Central Station and Double Dark Chocolate Fudge Crunch, Cliff's also boasts a half dozen kinds of soft-serve. The ones I have sampled are extremely dense and rich, although not as full-flavored as they feel. I did very much enjoy a double-flavored twirl of chocolate and the soft-serve flavor of the month, mint.

Beyond ice cream, Cliff's has a fundamental drive-in menu of hot dogs and hamburgers as well as grilled cheese and chicken breast sandwiches. I've had a foot-long hot dog and the 5-ounce Big Bud Burger, which, while not necessarily in the top rank of New Jersey drive-in eats, are altogether agreeable preludes to an afternoon's ice cream orgy.

Fried Bologna Sandwich

Gourmet bologna is a culinary oxymoron, but this sandwich, built around a thick slice of G&R's house-made bologna, hoists lowly lunch meat into a class of its own. Note the essential condiments: mustard, pickle, onion.(buffetbuster photo)
