When you sit down to a Southern cooked meal here it is a tradition. You don't tell a waiter what you would like to eat, you fill out a meal card first, then hand it over. Historically, the hand-written order helped to keep track of their customers. Between sipping on my perfectly sweetened tea
and waiting for my Salmon Croquettes with sweet potato souffle,
I received a complimentary back rub!
It s another tradition in these parts and long-time Mary Mac's customers look forward to having their "bellies filled and backs rubbed."
We met my dear friend Cliff, who recommended the restaurant. I completely "blame" him for jump-starting my on-air TV career. He went well above & beyond all expectations and helped me to land my first anchoring and reporting job in Tallahassee. Thanks, dude!
On our next Atlanta blog stop, we head a bit south to Peachtree City. That's where the Southern Belles get together. Stay tuned!
