Payton's Barbecue (Veedersburg IN)
Mon, 11/14/11 9:35 AM
Just in case anybody happens to look on Google Maps and thinks about stopping for a bite at Payton's Barbecue in Veedersburg, Indiana...
...don't. I learned the hard way a couple of months ago that even though it's listed as a barbecue restaurant on Google and Yahoo, it's actually a manufacturer/processor of packaged items for retail sales. I pushed myself to get there just before 4pm (closing time) on a Wednesday and got a rude awakening when I walked in the door and found myself in an office reception area, where I saw a cooler with various containers labeled "Payton's". The nice lady on the other side of the glass partition informed me that no, food was not for sale to the public so I thanked her and went on my not-as-merry-as-I-was-hoping way.
Now for all I know Payton's may make a fine product but the building at 119 East Washington Street is most definitely not a restaurant!!
Oh well, at least the drive south to McCormick's Creek State Park was nice...
