Sorry for the second post, I thought it would show up back on page three.
Regas, of course I remember Regas in Knoxville. That was a real treat when you got to go there. Man, the red velvet cake! Dad bought me my first lobster tail there when I was 13. Glad to hear that they are back in business.
The Valley Restaurant in Pigeon Forge, TN. This was before Dolly Parton ruined Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg with the HUGE influx of tourists.
It was a homestyle restaurant, they brought out bowl after bowl of food and placed it on a lazy susan in the middle of the table, eat all you want.
Crawdaddy's in Gulfport/Biloxi MS. The best fried alligator and fried pickles and fried pickled jalopenos ever. Their boiled crawfish was none too shabby either. I talked to the owner about why his alligator was so much better than anyone elses. He told me that he used the cheek meat instead of the tail.
Shoney's...... Ah the memories! I used to cruise the Shoney's drive-in located in Oak Ridge, TN every weekend when I was a teenager, Stop and get a Kingfish Sandwich. The drive-in section is closed now. Oh, and I loved the Big Boy and Dolly comic books they gave you too.
Manuels Tamales in New Orleans. For the life of me I cant remember the name of the street it was on, but it was always my first stop after a night of partying on Bourbon Street, and it is very near Bourbon.
The Tiny Tot, Harriman, TN. Meat and three restaurant that had the best chicken/dumplings/dressing every Thursday. And the best open faced chili cheese burger, best sweet tea, the list goes on.
