Boy, they had really good pies too.  The crusts were made the old fashioned way, with lard.   Man, were they rich.

Do you remember Bob Smith's restaurant & his home made chicken & dumplings?


There was another place besides Bob's Restaurant, Glenn's, and Kozy Korner that had good chicken & dumplings...

Anyone remember The Goose Pit out on Rt. 3 Olive Branch?  They had a great smorgasbord, complete with chix & dumplin's.  Whatever happened to it?  Seem to remember another place down the road from it called The Honker.  Don't remember if they sold food....

I remember the Goose Pit.  Had my first fish cooked with the head still on.  His eye followed me the whole time I ate it.

Ouida's is the old Shoe's Tavern.  Located on the east side drive across from the boat docks.  I haven't bee there in years.  My dad used to take me to Shoe's after goose or duck hunting and fishing.  My favorite food there was the fried fruit pies served up with a big ole glass of cold milk.  Mmmmm-mmmmm-mmmm!!!!  Smiley

The Goose Pit was great too.  It had caricatures of local goose hunters, pictures of geese, goose pits, etc. adorning the walls.  The food was good too.  Then again, it's all good!  Roll Eyes

I loved Shoe's chili...especially on a nippy fall afternoon.

It's so nice to have you back on the board, Geoff.  You answer my questions!  Thanks.  Smiley

Shoe's was neat during hunting season.   I remember one time they cooked up a big batch of mush and filling and let everyone make their own tamales and roll them in corn husks.

They had a really good juke box just filled with old, old,old, (did I say old?) 45's.   I loved it.   I would take the kids out there of a weekend afternoon and we would just people watch.  Oh and read all the business cards stapled to the walls and ceilings.

Were you there before they built the new one?  I loved the old one.  Thought it had lots of local "character" .   The new one didn't feel the same so I only went there a time or two; but I do hope it has managed to survive.
