We went here while visiting Georgetown after reading the reviews and I have to say it was well worth it. The food was delicious and it felt like a really good home cooked meal, something I had not had in sometime. I have submitted the...More

If you love to live like a local then Fava's is a must! Great little dinner in the heart of downtown Gtown. The southern breakfast was delish! Loved those grits!

A fun place to eat... old style diner & soda fountain counter. The "frickles" (fried pickles) were best I've had, dill tart with a thin sweet corn meal crust. Hot Brown is an awesome combo of Texas toast, covered with sliced turkey, cheese, bacon, tomato...More

No online menu, just go have a seat and order something. Then enjoy listening to where you are, in the heart of America.
