“The best place to enjoy a good, gut-stuffin' meal after a hike is the Cracker Barrel, IMHO. Just like eatin' breakfast at grandma's.”
“Yes, if you can get a seat.
People flock to that place like the Eloi after the Morlocks sound the sirens.”
It's the Sonic drive-in for the onion rings and the ambiance.
Another great 50's flashback is The Grill in Athens, Ga. (Beauty shakes and burgers.) The Guthrie's chicken place is also in Athens and kicks some serious ass (I'm still trying to reproduce that sauce of theirs).
For Atomic Heartburn, the Winner and Still Champeen is The Varsity (Atlanta or Athens, it matters not). Don't forget the ZANTAC before and the Rollaids after, and Be Sure to order those chilidogs To Go!”
“There's a Guthrie's in Auburn, AL too. Great chicken fingers, but you go there for the sauce, man, the sauce...”
(What's In That Stuff????)”
“Okay, it's been about ten years since I was at a Guthrie's, but here's my guess at what's in the sauce:
Onion Powder (maybe)
Garlic Powder (maybe)
That's my best guess.”
The Search Continues...”
“No problem. Like I said, that's a guess. I've never even made any, all of that is from memory. It's pretty memorable stuff, though...”
“Walk me a naked dog!”
“guthries are in tuscaloosa, b'ham, i think hsv has one now, tallahassee, gainsville, and a few college towns in east mississippi
hmm i see a trend...they are in most all the south college towns...”
“Yaz... I'm heading to Athens on Saturday to collect more Source Material and maybe check out the Clemson game. Maybe I can convince them to sell me a pint of it? Having to deal with 30 or 40 of those tiny plastic jobs is such a hassle, <G>.
I always start with the mayo/ catsup base, then cayenne, black pepper, maybe some paprika. The garlic and onion powders sound promising. I know they don't use Coleman's English mustard but it adds a nice zip.
It's great on those french fries, too!”
“Don't the cups at In-N-Out say that it is family run and operated and they don't franchise and than gives the location of everyone?”
“Had somebody bring me back an Italian hoagie from Lennies with a shooter, chips, and birch beer. Not near a hiking trail, but MMmmmm good!”
“Paprika is a good idea too. I never thought of ketchup, but I have a prejudice against ketchup ever since I saw my sister-in-law put it on a steak. A steak which I had seasoned and grilled. Ugh.
It probably is in there though.”
“I'd be careful taking her on a hike! She might bring along ketchup packets for the powdered eggs.
Okay, it looks like it's time to flush those folks out of the underbrush... Who have we got here that has to resist the urge to put Ketchup On Everything?
I know you're out there.”
“I was so traumatized that I only recently re-realized that ketchup is darn good on french fries. Oh the humanity....”
“Bit, for $10,000, I can make sis-in-law disappear (don't tell Jan). Ketchup on steak, indeed!
When I was a kid, I put ketchup on everything; chicken, pot roast, you name it. Drove my mom crazy.”
“FG, the Ketchup Board commercials on Prairie Home Companion are just a joke. It's not real.”
“Believe me, I've been tempted. She is one of the nicest, friendliest, happiest, most lovely annoying people I know. I love her to death but I am tired of waiting for her (she is habitually late to everything, and I mean by 45 minutes or so).
...and the steak thing is not a point in her favor...”
“Ketchup, for the good times. I love it but refrain from spoiling anyone's effort. I always taste before I drown. The only stuff that MUST have ketchup is: french fries, hash browns and pirogees. I'll even let a burger go without. I have been known to put it on scrambled eggs, mac n cheese, venison, green beans, etc. Abby'll eat the "condiment of the gods" by the spoon (or fist) full. Good stuff!”
“Didn't I see you at the Kitty Boutique?”
“Watch it, Beety-boy, or I'll break the other leg!
“my, this conversation has taken a nasty turn...
Yeah, Sass, I knew you were out there. There's At Least One in every bunch, LOL
Hey Bit, your sister-in-law isn't one of those Morning People is she? That'd be justifiable homicide.
I've found that Astronomy and 'morning people' just don't mix, <G>. Meteor showers go better with Brunch.”
“Miss opie needs to buy ketchup in 55 gallon drums”
“Here ya go:
“Guthrie's originated in Haleyville, AL which is about 30 minutes from Sipsey. It rocks!
Another good Bama fast food place is Milo's. The burgers come with cheese, grilled onions, and a sauce that's similar to A1. They're great!”
“dayhiker..haleyville SUCKS...i have to go there about once a week to see customers..there is NOTHING....not a guthries there now anymore...they do have a kfc/a&w though
i wanna try McDonalds new McAfrika!!!..lmao”
“I second Phil's "double double animal style" at In-and-Out...and we do have them in NorCal (or MiddleCal, or whatever SF is). It's our after surfing ritual to eat at an In and Out.
Message on the cups is a bible passage...not John 3:16, but something like Nahum...
Best Midwest burgers Chain Division--Wendy's, from my hometown of Cowlumbus, OH.
Best Midwest Burgers non-chain division--CJ's in South Bend, IN...”
“They do still have a Guthrie's. At least they did this past July when I was there. It's in a strip mall outside of town. If you're in the main downtown area turn onto 95? I think it is that heads east. Go a couple of miles and there is a strip mall on your right with a grocery store and maybe a Wal-Mart. It's in the middle of the strip center.
And yes Haleyville sucks. I grew up in Hamilton about 20 minutes to the west and Haleyville was one of our big rivals. When I was in school they had a bunch of baskeball players get busted for drugs. At the next b-ball game with them someone snuck in a jam box and played Eric Clapton's Cocaine. Great fun!”
“Bongo - It is John 3:16.”
“MILO's?!?!?!?? OMFG!!! Dayhiker, you need professional psychiatric help(oh, Mr. Buddha Bear...). Everybody I know agrees that a 3-day-old road-killed armadillo basted in skunk puke would probably taste better than anything Milo's could come up with. (gag, choke, puke...gasp)Oh, the humanity...!
At least we can agree on the fact that Haleyville sucks. I used to call on a couple of well drillers out there. I kept lookin' for the kid with the banjo...”
“'skunk puke'? LOL
Good thing I already had breakfast!”
“jeezus....man i'm starving to death..last thing i ate was a BEC at mcd's 24 hours ago...COME ON HOOTERS!! i need some milk to revive me.”
“You mean there were no 'heavy hors d'ouevres' at last night's meeting of the HMWHC?”
“arby's curly fries....MMMmMMMmMm
i like to mix cheddar sauce with spicey 3 pepper sauce to dip the curly fries in......OH MYYYYY!!”
“As I mentioned, Haleyville is near Sipsey. This past Feb a friend and I were driving to Thompson creek trailhead. About halfway there he says "Man, I bet they got dudes with 3 eyes back here." I just about lost it. That's not too far from the mark.”
“heavy petting sounds about more like it
haleyville, hackleburg, hamilton, russelville, moulton...all of em are backwoods nothings....and i've gotta work/live around there”
“Ahhh, Hackleburg, 'Home of Sonny James, the Southern Gentleman'. If you can see through the kudzu, that's what the sign as you enter the town says.
"Running Bear, loved little White Dove..."”
“the sign is on the east side of "town"..then a HUGE VF jeanswear plant is next...then as you just pass the plant...a sign saying.. Leaving Hackleburg.”
“Uh-oh, you're talking about home now OPIE. Aren't you from the center of Southern Culture, LA?”
“A buddy of mine's mom was from Hackleburg. His dad was from Benton Harbor, MI. So they moved back and forth a lot when he was a kid. Anyway, his favorite tale about being educated there (in the early 60's) was his teacher trying to explain a homonym. Her example:
He did not score big points with the teacher when he told her that the first wont is pronounced want....”
“ and yet again...”
“I accidentally put two italic tags in the first message. Turns out you have to end both of them, lol....”
“When I moved to Hamilton from Tuscaloosa I was in the fourth grade. I had to learn many new words:
I want a sup of that drink.
The tar on my car is flat.
The is hot as far.
Those are the first ones that come to mind. There was a shirt that many people had that showed the state of Alabama with a star in the upper left hand corner and the caption said "Where in the heck is Hamilton, AL" I wondered the same thing....and I lived there.”
“...is at Cassies Supper Club in Cody, WY. They weigh in at 12 oz.
Order the Hangover Burger. Not a morning after meal, it literally hangs over the bun it is so big and loaded with everything.”
