Meet Tina and Babbie of the Past Time Cafe in Crab Orchard, KY.
Babbie made the best cheeseburger I have had in my life.
Tina served it with a smile.
She also let us know the chocolate cake was made right there.
Alton Brown on mom-and-pop roadside joints:
"I watch these people drive by all these fabulous places—to go to ... McDonald's.
It drives me nuts."
There are owners who get up every morning because they love their business - their food. There are servers, waitresses, who really want to tell you which it the good stuff...
And, they enjoy chatting with you.
Look 'em in the eye and ask, "What are you proud of?"
(They might be shocked. But, quietly, respectfully, ask again.)
If they smile and step closer and suggest something, order it.
If they shrug...order a Coke to go.
It's worth the chance for a meal your mouth will love!
People say they want consistency.
They KNOW that their going to get at McDonald's.
Yes.. but what adjectives would you use?
Melt-in-your-mouth? Bursting with Flavor?
Does McDonald's leave you WANTING MORE?
When is the last time you made "Mmm-Mmm" sounds?
At the BZB Cafe...
Where I had a cheeseburger, American fries...
And, I bought a ballcap. ;)
The next time you are driving...just stop.
Take. A. Chance.
