Travels in the South

29 Jun

Hello friends.  I hope that you have been enjoying our Travels in the South edition.  Today, we continue our adventures with Fozziemom and Fozziedad who visited all the way from Australia. Today, I want to focus on a restaurant that everyone went to on their way back home from Tybee Island.  Also this is a restaurant that Jean and Bill visited while they were visiting as well.

It’s a place that my mom has been going to since she she was small child.  She actually introduced my dad to it and it’s a great feel at home kind of place.

This restaurant is called Buckner’s Family Restaurant and has wonderful vegetables (for our vegetarians) and the best fried chicken you will ever wrap your lips around – just sayin’ so says mom – snorts.  Which brings me to the chicken in the picture – his name is Elmer and he’s a pretty cool dude.  His tall – really tall and his sign says do not touch… Personally I think too many people in the past have wanted to get up close and personal to him to have their pictures taken if you know what I mean.

Now you see the cool thing about this place is all of the tables are round.  Okay I can see you going okay and what’s a big deal about that.  Well you see in the middle of the round table, they have the biggest movable section – a giant lazy Susan if you will.  The workers will come to your table with all of these bowls containing wonderful delights – creamed corn, green beans, beats, cole slaw , lima beans, rolls, chicken, barbeque pork, peach cobbler – just to name a few.  And as you eat and things run out, you just ask for refills and the servers gladly fill everything back up.  So you have a buffet without having to get up and down all of the time.  You sit and the staff bring YOU the food.  Cool huh?

Now you have to remember that everyone stopped here on the way home from Tybee Island.  They were tired, exhausted if you will, and at the point of just being silly.  The moms didn’t even have make up on.  So, I’m tell you that in preparation for this final picture.  A picture to show you (A) how tired they looked and (B) how silly they were being trying to get a picture with Elmer.  So here you go my friends – the moms in their bare necessities.

    Yes, a great place to eat with good friends. I liked the “Seniors, are recycled kids” on the menu board. Bill Neilson

      Wasn’t that awesome? Mom says she feels like she’s recycled most of the time. Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

      Oh brother! I’ve begged mom/dad to sneak me into this place. I could lay up under the table and no one would ever know… maybe just the occasional grunt or snort for more food to be passed down to me but other than that I would be good. Honestly. XOXO – Bacon

    Oh yeah -I remember this place from when the Canadian Crazies were visiting! Looks like it’s just GOT to be on the “must go here” list when you have company and for a very good reason – DELISH!

    Hugs, Sammy

    This place sounds fantastic. We have a restaurant in town called “Bea’s” and it is a lot like this. Mom won’t take me there, either.

      Snorts. What’s up with our parents not taking us? Sounds kind of unfair doesn’t it my friend? XOXO – Bacon

    I loved that place. You’re right Bacon I was hot and tired and this place got my fun peg back in place. I won’t forget it and think we should have a lazy susan with condiments and food at home.

      This was definitely the place to get your fun back – all along with delicious food and company 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
      PS A lazy susan would be awesome here too. I could just spin it and fill my belly!

      Snorts with piggy laughter! That would be them to do just that to poor Elmer the chicken. XOXO – Bacon

    That reminds me of a place near Pheonix back in the seventies. They had large picnic tables and they would put all the food on the table like a big thanksgiving dinner. I’m sure the germ nuts would not allow that today.

      Probably not but they sure are fun places to visit aren’t they? XOXO – Bacon

    Bacon…did you mom cut her hair? It looks cool. Any who…lazy Susan’s are perfect for filling up plates. Woo-hoo, brilliant idea. 😉

      Snorts – her hair was so not done this day – no curling or anything. She did cut it some time back and died it that purple color. You should see her now – she’s even added a nose ring! XOXO – Bacon

        I LOVE the purple and the nose ring but thought her hair was shorter.

    That looks like so much fun. I LOVE help yourself dishes and the photos are CUTE!
    ps. Shane was wondering do they have “Walking Dead tours” in Georgia? I have USA netflix back and we are watching Walking Dead. I don’t get scared of zombies anymore because I have helped the teens dress up as them I think. It would be fun to play a zombie as an extra. Brains!!! ❤


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
