On The Road With Kitchen Warfare (Day 7)

No Comment

homestead Today we’re back in Old Town and its our last full day before heading back home. Mostly we ran errands and got the property mowed but we left time to try two local eateries that had been on our list since we got into town.

The first was the Homestead Restaurant, a locally owned spot in Fanning Springs that wasn’t here the last time I was in town. We drove past this place a dozen times and it was always packed with locals. We already had our dinner planned so we decided to try the Homestead’s Breakfast Buffet. As anticipated it was quite good, a real cut above the low quality breakfast buffets often found at institutional restaurants.

The 2nd spot on our list was Ralph’s Burger House which has been in Chiefland ever since I can remember which goes back at least 20 years to when we first bought our property. Chiefland itself has changed almost beyond recognition but Ralph’s still remains, undaunted by the surrounding glitzy fast food franchises that have moved into town. Just don’t be late because closing time on weeknights is 9pm. Arriving just in the nick of time (take out only) we indulged ourselves with classic onion rings, giant milkshakes and burgers to die for. I’ve always enjoyed a good quality burger and when on the road always try to sample the local favorites. There are some most excellent grease bombs to be found along our highways and byways and you can be sure that Ralph’s Burger House ranks right up there among them.

In fairness to Ralph, you get a lot more onion rings than this, we ate quite a few before thinking to take a picture.
