The South's most bizarre restaurant--end of an era
Planet Wayside is closing! Sadly, yes, after years of alternately thrilling his customers with his wonderful and eclectic menu and baffling them with his wayyyy out-there wisecracks, Tim is retiring.
There is talk that his son might carry on, but right now the legendary converted chicken coop in Hamilton, VA is up for sale. Insiders know that the place itself is a dump (it wasn't much improved from its poultry days), the humor insulting and strange, the service non-existent, but the food! I can't imagine life without Marion Berry Cobbler pie, or Tim's unique fajitas.
Planet W is about an hour outside Washington, DC, on Business 7 in the small town of Hamilton. Call ahead for reservations if you can--the 15 or so seats go fast. And don't be afraid of Tim--he really is harmless.
