There's this little place I know

Down in the ville from which the majority of my kinfolk hail, there's a little restaurant called Marvin's. Marvin's main claim to fame is a buffet full o' country cookin' just like my - and if you live in the South, your - grandmother would put on the Sunday table.

If you're ever fortunate to walk down the buffet line at Marvin's, you'll be treating yourself to some of the best fried chicken, beans, taters, greens, and cornbread in Middle Tennessee ... hell, in all of Tennessee.

I went to Marvin's today. I didn't have time to sit and eat so I wheeled into the parking lot with a to-go plate on my mind. Fortunately for me, 'que was on the menu -- er, in the steam trays -- and that's just what I got to go.

As you can see, I went easy on the fixins, and heavy on the smoked pulled-pork. The slaw was creamy and crisp, and the baked beans were, eh, okay. The 'que, however, was juicy and full o' rich smoke-filled flavor. (I don't know who's in charge of smoking pork at Marvin's -- hell, for all I know it could be someone who's kin to me -- but he or she should be treated to all kinds of back-slapping for runnin' one hell of a BBQ pit.

One of these days I'll do a proper sit-down review of Marvin's Family Restaurant. Until then, you'll just have to look at the above pic and salivate. Like I'm doin' now ...

'Tis not my fault that you don't get out much, you non-spelling, unorganized, grabastic piece of amphibian you-know-what ...

And that's me being very kind to your dumb ass.

Dear lord, you're still maintaining this blog? Some redneck scrupulously documenting the greasy slop he piles into his gaping hole. That crap looks disgusting.... PORK BEANS GREENS TATERS! SERVED IN STYROFOAM!

Fucking hell. I wonder if i could find a blog where some 400-lb lardass writes about his great love for Big Macs and large Cokes. It's highly likely.

Stop wasting the precious internet on this tripe, man. Write about anything else. Write a poem, take some photos, do something worthwhile instead of wasting your time on your disgusting gut-fillings.
