I'm with you. My mother was from New York and remembered them fondly when one of their burgers cost a nickel. I finally tried one in Ohio when I was back there for a son's wedding about 10 years ago. Disgusting!

I can take you to some real food places. Of course, you'll be paying the tab. My S2 comes with a price.

The best sausage gravy I've EVER had (and I grew up around two deep South g'mothers) is across the street from the West Valley Detention Center in Etiwanda, about 4 miles from me. (Tole House Cafe)

Then there's this gem: Freddie Mae's Southern Cooking

Both establishments no doubt responsible for the emergence of this cracker barrel

What normal restaurants in California serve food like that? I've only see that in high end restaurants and it had nothing to do with "California cuisine".

I associate Cracker Barrel with vacations. I'll usually eat there when when I'm somewhere that has one. If I had one down the street, I don't think I'd go there very often.

Sounds to me as if Fontucky has the handle on the "real" restaurants in California.

The real restaurants in California are the ones that serve Southern slop?
