From burgers to rocking chairs

At our cousin's reunion in Andrews, North Carolina, we ate a few promising meals. They were fine, but one was better than the rest. It was the Burger Basket, located just north of downtown. When we drove up, it didn't look too promising. We had heard it was very good and were determined to try it. Andrews doesn't have very many restaurants so we didn't have much to choose from. Most of us ordered cheeseburgers and were very happy with our food.

One of the local men in the restaurant said the cheeseburger was "killer" and I agreed with him. It was perfect, not a preformed, cardboard burger but, a homemade burger served up in a basket. Another good choice was the "Apple dumpling and ice cream with caramel sauce. That was "killer," too.

Across the road from our hotel was, Jimmy's Pick 'n Grin. It was modeled after the Grand Ole Opry and we really enjoyed it. Apparently, much of the town of Andrews enjoyed it, too because there was a large crowd. Most of them had their clogging shoes on and they were obviously having a great time. They really were into dancing.

But my favorite thing was sitting on the rocking chairs out in front of the hotel. What a great way to visit, while gazing out at the mountains. It just doesn't get any better than that.
