I am the one who said try the Pool Hall Chili. I am so sorry the Fad was closed. But it has not been closed that long. It was there 3 years ago while I was back for a family reunion. But the owner was always a mean ole coot. You will have to come to my house in Oakland, CA and I will fix some for you.
I should have warned you about the ruination of Colonel Sander's Cafe. That was ruined years ago.
Boone Tavern had the best spoon bread in the world. We would drive 50 miles on 2 lane mountain roads for Sunday dinner there.
