My daughter is spending the summer in your town, yoyoma, and I think she will be having Sonic withdrawal when she goes back to school. She stops everyday on her way to work for a Cherry Limeade, and makes a special trip out there on her days off. A wild one, she is.
I saw Chick-fil-A in the highlight and started salivating. It's totally unreasonable to be disappointed that there is no actual discussion of the ultimate chicken sandwich in here, but there you have it. (I am currently living in the midwest, in an area where a mention of Chick-fil-A is met with "Huh? What's that?" Poor souls have no clue what they are missing.)
I grew up in Tennessee and Georgia, and went to college in South Carolina. And I can't stand sweet tea. But both my folks were transplanted Yankees, so that might have been part of it--we never had sweet tea at home AFAIK.
I had Chick-Fil-A for lunch today. Oh, that was good. I'm going home to Michigan for a week and I had to get my fix before I left. Manix, I think Taco Bueno is an OK & TX thing. I've seen them when I'm at the MILs but they're not here in SC.
I'm in, being in Texas. We have Chick-Fil-A here but I don't eat at them much because there are none near us. They have great billboard advertisements, too.
I'm here! I've never lived in the South, but I have relatives in Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama, and I visit frequently. It's barely broken 80 here in Ontario this summer, and it's driving me nuts... I need Alabama-in-August heat. Fortunately, I'm heading to Durham in a couple of weeks!
I miss Waffle House like nobody's business. And White Lily flour and red velvet cake, too.
I'm in the Chapel Hill area of NC. It's hot as a motherfucker right now. I love this area 9 months of the year, but mid June through mid September are just plain miserable.
But Chick-fil-a is fabulous. I heart their little nuggets with sweet and sour dipping sauce.
Waffle house once gave me the most violent food poisoning of my life. Now I know: breakfast food at Waffle House gets ordered/cooked/sold quickly and therefore is fine. The hamburgers, on the other hand, may have been sitting out for a little while before you came along.
This morning, I was checking messages at work and couldn't, for the life of me, figure out what this lady said her name was. It sounded like see-ya. Turns out, it was Syd.
As you might guess, I'm also a yankee transplant.
Lawzy what a great idea.
Pass that Skin-so-Soft afore these skeeters drain me as dry as a jug of buttermilk at a Baptist homecoming.
I was born and raised in Florida. My husband's from Alabama. Sweet tea is pretty much a sign of civilization as far as we're concerned.
Chik-fil-A is the only fast food I'll eat.
