While driving on to Branson, we drove down part of the old Route 66. Here is Devil's Elbow.
This shows the old road. It really is a shame the main highways bypass all this great scenery.
We then stopped at Kevin's favorite catfish restaurant, Gary Dowd's. All you can eat. The fish IS excellent. They used to serve a green tomato relish as a side, it was very good with sweet pickles and such in it. But I overheard the waitress telling someone that the company they bought it from quit making it. How hard could it be to make it themselves? Maybe they've got someone on that...because the fried okra didn't do it for me!
Now this photo was taken back in February, we were coming home from an Anniversary trip to Eureka Springs, Arkansas. This is one of those "had to be there" moments. We don't know what these long hushpuppy looking things are, but they aren't hushpuppies. And they aren't very good. So we began playing with our food. Immature I know, but we had fun! They do serve regular hushpuppies btw. Hey, there's some of that green tomato relish in that little bowl!
How poplular is Dowd's? Take a look! Maybe you can make your mark there some day!
