Hole In The Wall Diner (Waverly, TN)

forks-4When my wife and I travel for leisure, we tend to choose higher-end chain restaurants, mainly because you know what to expect, and the last thing I want is to take my wife out to an unknown place and she be disappointed. We will vary from this pattern only when it is a place that one of us has tried before.

I’ll tell you about our experience after the break. Continue Reading…

Honestly, I have been hesitant to go because I was really disappointed that Green Frog closed shop. Alba has been open for a little while now, and my indecisiveness got the best of me to Alba’s benefit the other day.
