Great Country Breakfast Wed, 08/16/06 4:50 AM (permalink)
While my wife & I were on vacation in Pigeon Forge Tenn,we ate breakfast every morning @ the Black Bear Restaurant on the Parkway in Sevierville.They have fantastic pancakes-my wife raved about the cherry pancakes,& I would get the Sunrise platter ,which were 3 eggs,scrambled,the best sausage patties I `ve eaten,& also the best biscuits I`ve had in a long time,along with homemade grits.The prices are very reasonable,the service people are pro`s,who really look after you,& it was never more than a few minutes waiting time for our orders.But stay away from their country ham,it was the only drawback from eating there all week......

        I'm curious about the country ham as well. Please don't say it was too SALTY! I would drive to the Farmhouse Restaurant in Valdosta, GA for their country ham, grits and redeye gravy every Sunday if I could!

          Any place that serves country ham is a good place in my book. It is an acquired taste though and I can understand why it might not be for everyone. It is a taste well worth acquiring, however. Once one does acquire the taste for it, a 25% water added slab of city ham will seem like an over processed pork monstrosity.

          Of course Tombstone may very well like country ham and simply did not like the particular one served as they all do have their own personalities. Waiting to hear the reason as are some others here.

            While we are awaiting the word on Tombstones rationale for exclusion of Country Ham, Please allow me to interject the Dillard House breakfast as a great one also. Served Family Style, it can be the only meal of the day and you will survive rather well I think.

            Now... Calling TOMBSTONE... About the Ham or No Ham question???
