We're back from a very successful trip.
We relied on our GPS to find our first meal . . . big mistake! Not even worth mentioning.
Day two took us to the Southern Kitchen, just off of 81 in VA. Kyle loved the peanut soup - I was not a fan. I did however love the fried chicken and we both shared and loved a chocolate cream pie. We explored a nearby civil war battlefield. Sadly we didn't have enough time to explore the town - lots of cute looking shops.
Day three began at the Silver Skillet in Atlanta. We both loved the biscuits and sausage gravy. Kyle had a perfect ham and cheese omelet and I enjoyed their version on an egg mcmuffin. From there we went to the Georgia Aquarium. It was spectacular - worth the drive. We ended the day at Mary Macs in Atlanta. Kyle loved the chicken and dumplings and I loved the fried chicken. We had a hard time choosing our sides - too many choices. I was happy with my stewed apples. The wait staff was what really stood out to us. We wanted to take our waitress home with us.
Once in Florida, we enjoyed a fabulous pizza at Moon River Pizza on Edgewood Avenue in Jacksonville. It's just down the street from the Edgewood Bakery and The Crazy Egg - both favorites. The pizzas were hand tossed, thin crust. Their salads were unusual and quite good.
Another highlight was the greek food at Nick The Greek which is closer to the Beach in Mayport, near the naval station. Currently it's a walk up window on a busy street. They are in the process of renovating a space in a strip mall around the corner. Excellent gyros!!! Everything is freshly made and Nick has high standards as to where he gets his ingredients! A great place!
Thanks again for all the wonderful suggestions! Happy New Year!
