We like to eat...

Home made or out on the town. We like to eat! There is nothing like going on a road trip and finding a new place to eat, or being out on the town running errands and going to a family favorite.
I especially like places that are reminiscent of bygone years...the diners, the drive ins...or just the small town restaurant that has vintage memorabilia.  Here are three places we've been to in the last 3 months....hope you enjoy, even if you can't taste the food!

Rosie's Diner....yummy! I had the Mediterranean omelet that day. Usually, I have their Cobblestone French Toast. This diner car and 2 others were placed here, one serves as the main diner, then there is the ice cream shop, and the other the bar.  Mini golf out back! Very retro, as most of the insides are original!

This is a new place we tried one night while out running errands. They were originally a drive in in the 1940's, the neon sign is the original Pixie Drive In sign. The speakers in the bottom picture were the original speakers they hung on the cars....now they are hooked up to the juke box and hang in every booth. Liyah thought it was pretty cool to sit with Elvis and Marilyn (altho' I'm pretty sure she doesn't have a clue who they are).

Greg and I had a day away last week and went north to a small lakeside town called Manistee. We enjoyed the view, the ship coming in with coal from across the pond, and some beautiful skies and water. We, of course, hit up a couple thrift stores and met some people while we were out and about. A couple people recommended a local place called The Bungalow. Famous for their steaks and burgers. Greg had the fish sandwich & I always go for the Reuben sandwiches (I have yet to find one as good as Jason's Deli has in Murfreesboro, TN). The tables were all inlaid with pictures and news clippings about local history...I love that kind of stuff!

What kind of places do you like to eat at? What catches your interest when you're looking for a new place to eat? Retro, kitsch, diners, themed restaurants?!

Cheers! to all who eat good food and enjoy!
