Not So Fast Food
Since the beginning of roads, those who travel them have sought places to eat at or very near them. The history of roadside dining parallels that of the American automobile itself. It became immediately clear that a driving public in a rush to get from place to place would not mind and if fact did demand to be fed in like manner.
Drivers were more than willing to step down several levels in ambiance and food quality to be able to eat and run. Drive in restaurants allowed folks to eat in their own cars and with motor running at the ready to roll. The inevitable upshot was the birth of the fast food industry. Fast food has, however, become a bad pot hole on the road to proper nutrition.
We're in Lexington County, SC, where we found this very interesting diner. This does not appear to be a fast food joint. In fact they only seem to have slow food, that is, food which can't make it across Why 302 fast enough to avoid being run over. In the giant burger featured on their sign, one can clearly see a Possum tail hanging out of the sandwich. The Possum is to road kill what the sturgeon is to caviar.
