Made it to North Carolina!

Posted in Uncategorized at 12:00 am by dgcombs

Linda and I took Justin and Cody back home. We arrived late yesterday evening.

We made one stop for lunch in a little place called Gaffney at arestaurant called “”Big Daddy’s Barbeque”” of Exit 92 in South Carolina.This is the last place you can stopon I-85 to get barbeque made with tomato based barbeque sauce. In NorthCarolina, barbeque means vinegar based BBQ sauce!

Linda liked the hushpuppies and salads, but didn’t like the slaw.

I asked a dumb questions though. All the items on the menu said things like””Barbeque plate”” and “”Barbeque sandwich.”” So I asked, “”barbeque WHAT? Chicken?beef? turkey? pork?”” The young lady assisting us looked at me funny as shesaid, “”…. uh.. pork. what else is there?”” I guess it’s like getting””tea”” in the South. It comes with sugar. You have to specify if you want it””UNSWEET”” so you can obviously put sweet-n-low in it.

When we got here, we tried to get Justin and Cody out for dinner. But Justinwas too full from lunch at Big Daddy’s. So Cody routed Linda and me to a nicehomey mexican place. He was so proud of himself for being able to find itwithout any help!
