Maybe, if this thread catches on, someone could organize, by state, some great dining experiences and maybe a couple details about them. I like smorgasbord / buffet types, so I'll start by offering two here in Pennsylvania. One in the west, near 7 Springs on Rt. 31, The Oakhurst TeaRoom. The other is in the east, in Amish country northeast of Lancaster on Rt. 23 and 897 in Blue Ball (;)), and is Shady Maple smorgasbord.

I just discovered a great hamburger in Blue Ridge Ga, Sue's Ice Cream Parlor.
We like Chris and Charlie's here in Franklin, NC, live music too.

There's a new phone app coming soon called, No Chains. It directs you to independent restaurants by menu items.

I won't eat (or even pull into the parking lot) at "buffet" style restaurants...Years spent driving a semi took care of that for me forever...I'll setup a very common scenario that I've seen MANY times...I'd park the truck, fill out my logbook, then make my way inside...Usually have to use the restroom from too many Coke's, and go in to take care of that first thing...While in that process, somebody leaves from their "sit down" event, and go right out the door not even stopping to wash their hands...I finish up and wash my hands to see that same person at the buffet, unwashed hands handling the utensils to fill their plate with food....:icon_eek:

Prince William County in Northern Virginia. If you like Indian Food or even thought about trying it, Masala Magic is the place to go. Less than a mile off 95. GREAT food, GREAT service, GREAT atmosphere. Did I mention I thought they were pretty great? Just tell them Dave and Terri sent you.

Same reason I won't eat snack food (peanuts/pretzels etc) in bars...

For Buffet style I guess King's Buffet in Portsmouth NH, has everything from King Crab legs to Sushi, Mac & Cheese to Salmon.. Price is good and the service is ok.

For good sit down food there's Benedict's in Rochester, cash only (ATM in the foyer) and lots of friendly, smiling pretty girls to bring your order to ya.

3D-Dave since you mention that area have you ever tried Astoria Pizza in Woodbridge, exit 160 off I 95??? Number 55 on the menu is the best steak/cheese I have ever eaten. I was an Army Recruiter there in 1975 when they opened and still stop by when in the area....same owner/operator.http://www.myastoriapizza.com/

Thanks, all, for picking up this thread. Some things in life we just have to do, and eating is one of them. May as well eat well while we can!:47b20s0:

I guess one of the great dining experiences of my life was at the Maisonette in Cincy ...
...now out of business, it was and is truly memorable ...

... after that ... probably Cafe Del Artistes in Puerto Vellarta ... again ... memorable in every way ...

http://www.cafedesartistes.com/



Currently and affordably ... Roastfish and Cornbread, on Hilton Head ...

http://www.roastfishandcornbread.com/default.html



Chef David will make sure your visit is memorable ... sweetpotato cornbread that is better than most desserts at most restaurants ...

Everything is good and Chef David will make it memorable ...

enjoy ...

because ...

opinions vary ...

all blessings ...
