In response to the question earlier in this thread, I believe the ownership of the Whistle Stop in Glendale, KY changed in 2008 or thereabouts. As I said, we loved the Whistle Stop in its original incarnation. Superb hot browns, and you could order a half order (which was more than enough), and they brought your iced tea or soft drinks in "bottomless" carafes.
The online reviews after the ownership change are mixed, so I suspect different people have different experiences there. I know the new owners opened a branch in Elizabethtown some years ago, which was basically a storefront in a shopping center. I don't know whether it is still there, but we visited it for lunch when we were going to the Coca-Cola Museum, and we were very disappointed in the food, with the exception of the brown sugar cream pie, which was still very good.
As for Littleman's listings, I've always been struck by how comprehensive they are, but I am curious as to whether he's actually visited them all, or whether he's gathering them from online -- which is useful, but not quite the same as an endorsement from someone who has eaten there, especially recently. For example, Mrs. Rowe's in Staunton, VA, is unfortunately a shadow of its former self today, though it was once a great Roadfood destination with terrific biscuits at breakfast and fine pan-fried chicken, yeast rolls and pies at lunch and dinner.
