VERY sorry to hear the Elvis Cafe is no more. That was a great place with amazing decor. Can't say I remember much about the food, but the people and the interior were special. I made several stops there.
Quality mom 'n pop businesses are disappearing and being rolled over by WallMarts and other big box behemoths. The little guys are working hard to earn our support, and they deserve it.

Last week, we detoured out of Fish Lake for a day trip to Capitol Reef. Favorite lunch spot in Torrey is Slacker's Burger Joint. Great burgers and fries, but my favorite is a hot fudge malt. A "don't miss" for our family whenever we find our way to Torrey, UT and Capitol Reef National Park.

If you're ever in Kitchener the Metro Tavern has the best schnitzel anywhere.

Clam Chowder in Cedar Key

Bringing this thread back up.........
The Best Clam Chowder Ever is at Tony's in Cedar Key, Florida. (Winner of the clam chowder cook off 3 years in a row!)
And since you're in "clam country" order the clam strips too - DEElicious!
There's a public parking lot a few blocks away by the boat launch or you'll have to find a spot down a side street.

For the best oysters near Apalachicola FL, stop in to Island View in Eastpoint to buy they by the bushel or half bushel $38. A bit of work to clean them and then open but totally worth it. Or if you want to have them opened and served with a beer, try Lynn's just up the street.
And for excellent blue crabs, try Seafoodlicious in Savannah Georgia. It's a take out place but we bought 2 pounds at $8/each and got a 3rd pound free. They also had seafood salad and stuffed crab cake which was spicy and delicious.

In Leesburg Virginia the Blue Ridge Grill has excellent ribs and Thundercracker shrimp pasta. Joe Theisman frequents this restaurant since he lives 5.27 miles from it.

Best breakfast

Funny, i just told Bill this morning I thought his breakfast was as good as I have had anywhere....and I have eaten in some fancy places. Huge servings, great coffee, friendly staff.......low prices! And, I think he has owned this for 30 or more years....

So, if you are looking for a family oriented small diner:

Bill's Ham Place
1420 Southfield Rd, Lincoln Park, MI 48146

Happy trails and Good Luck

Check out the Steak n Hoagie shop in Charlotte, NC. This is a small local Greek restaurant. I always get Grecian Chicken which is $5.95 and includes two home made side dishes.

In DeLand, Florida go to Santorinis Greek Quisine. Small but great food that is lovingly prepared.

In St. Augustine the locals eat at O'Steen's Restaurant. Bring cash. Great fried shrimp.

Best Burgers In NC

For a great hand patted hamburger try Johnson's in Siler City, NC. He has fresh ground meat, never frozen, and when he runs out for the day he is out. It is in an old service station and the line can be long. Open for lunch only Monday-Saturday.

Also we just ate at the Shed Barbeque and Blues in Ocean Springs, Mississippi while we were on a day trip to Biloxi from Canopener. They have great pulled pork and a very unique atmosphere.

North Carolina IS a big state.....

to quote Silverbee ---- "Best Burgers In NC"

But, since NC IS a big state, have to pay homage to a couple more fab burger joints that I know of. Both only do it freshly ground every day. Both of these places make lots of stuff but I'll stick to my favorites.

TasTee in Shelby, NC Have an outside shelter with tables
Great Cheeseburger basket

Blackwood's Drive In -- Kings Mountain, NC -- They have curb service, outside picnic tables or you can eat inside
Lotta Burger basket -- 2 patties, side by side, with slaw, pickles, cheese

Yum Yum
'01 16' Bambi --- Swee' Pea
'13 23D International --- Trixy
'09 Silverado --- Big Bertha
Adoptee -- '78 Argosy 24' Moho -- Big Girl
