Ahhhh yes, this is wall art in Sharon's Cafe, a breakfast and lunch place in Mexico Beach, FL.
Nice to start out the morning with a giggle!
Offerings here are simple, and we got a pecan waffle:
and a sausage omelet with grits:
Mexico Beach, FL is about 20+/- miles west of Apalachicola, where the "pan" meets the "handle" (or vice versa). It's pretty small, with a wonderful, sugar-sand beach, and a handful of restaurants and bars. One of its claims to fame, besides the hilarious slogan noted by CajunKing (see the post above this one), is that you can celebrate New Years in two time zones.
One of the primary restaurants in town is Killer Seafood. You'll find a great description and photos here: !!! http://roadfood.com/Resta...77-5247/killer-seafood
Since it was dark inside and I don't take flash pictures in restaurants, the only photo I have is of their hush puppies, which were hot and tasty:
I have not tried anything with their famous seafood simmering sauce, which they bottle and sell, but their fried seafood plates are great.
From here I headed west on I-10 and stopped briefly in New Orleans:
Then drove to Baton Rouge, stopping at Parrain's Seafood Restaurant. I ordered their soup of the day--delicious Creole Shrimp and Eggplant Soup:
which came with a HUGE fresh bread stick:
Catfish fingers which were hot and crispy and fabulous (way better than the photograph shows):
And for dessert, root beer cake:
Not sure why, but I didn't love this flavor in a cake.
Because I was on a schedule to get home and trying to visit several friends en route, I didn't spend time in several cities I would otherwise have loved to linger in. New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Houston are examples. And even though I spent time in San Antonio (that will be in my next post), we did not go to any regional restaurants. Hopefully I'll get back there another time!
