i moved from the hippy-dippy, healthy-eating, all natural, homegrown food-eating, state of Vermont to Alabama in 1993. LONG STORY.
one day, at my new job, the ladies all gathered in the front of the camera store & asked me if i wanted to go out for veggies for lunch. I thought it would be a salad bar type of place.
it was a Meat & Three.
This is a really nice place, Johnny’s. The place they took me was in downtown Birmingham & the interior looked like it had been built in the 1960s. Everything was either fried, or soaked to oblivion. but they did have amazing pies. I ate pie for lunch. I didn’t mean to appear as a snob to my co-workers, I was just shocked to the core about the whole place.
As i’m sure they would have been had they gone out for lunch in Vermont.The kids & I picked the Caesar Salad w/ chicken. It was the best i’d ever had.
if you live in the U.S. & have to travel down to the Deep South, you now have the advantage. You know what to order.
Fried Chicken w/ fried green tomatoes, macaroni & cheese & parmesan grit cake with a Sweet Tea. 🙂
