One place DH and I would like to eat at more is The Village Kitchen here in Cookeville. They have great food. The last time we ate there, we had something we hadn't had since we were in Michigan - broasted chicken. Oh, it was yummy.
Here's the thing about this little ville - there is a dearth of chicken places. Don't get me wrong, we do have a Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Church's Chicken. KFC is ok and I don't know how Church's stays open. Church's took over the site of Mrs. Winners Chicken, which was inconsistent. But, hey, this is the south, and there are no local chicken places at all.
Back to Village Kitchen. The food is great. And the mashed potatoes are real, not instant. But they have cafe hours and usually close around 2 pm on weekdays and Saturday. Fridays they are open later because they have their all you can eat catfish. So we have to plan a meal there so we get there before they close. But so worth the trip.
