I really enjoyed Blue Highways but I avoid any restaurant that announces "home-cooked" food. If I wanted home-cooked food I would eat at home.

Furthermore, based on my observations, any restaurant with the word "family" in the name will not have very good food.


's why I chuckle at people who sneer about things and gloat about how they'd rather go to any "mom & pop diner" over other places.

I'm like, "why, so you can sample the finest wares off of a Sysco truck?"
