Luckily for me, they also have a fairly nice salad bar and vegetable table. I can indulge in a little bit of FRIED and then fill up on veggies.
But it hit me today: we go there for more than the food. We go for the ambiance. It's family run and families go there to eat after church. They all seem to know one another. It's almost like Mayberry. My partner and I are both from small southern towns and we're rather misplaced living in Atlanta. It hit me today that we make the 90 mile trek to The Redd House not just for the great food, but to reconnect with our roots.
And I don't have to gorge on fried green tomatoes for the reconnection. I'll be happy with one piece of catfish and a plate full of vegetables. Fruit for dessert. And I'll feel at peace with myself in all ways when we leave.
