Or maybe Hickory House? They used to be all over town - now I think we are down to only two (Dunwoody & Northlake).

At one point they even had one down in Tallahassee.

This reminds me of Charles' Chips home delivery.

Thanks Johnatl, It was Hickory House and I would never have remembered it without your help!

I remember that one.

When I was a kid, we used to go to the one at Scott Blvd. & North Decatur twice a week! I LOVED their Brunswick Stew.

I might have to take a ride out to Northlake later......

We used to go to Doby's on Ponce de Leon near the Plaza Theater, especially late at night after leaving the San Souci.

Do you know the cafeteria I am talking about? I always got jello cut in cubes in a tall dessert dish with whipped cream interspersed. If I scratch my brain really hard this is one of my earliest memories, probably 3 or 4 years old.
