I'm going back to visit my old home town - I lived there from 1948 to 1960. Back then Mike's Cafe had great burgers, and Schwan's Dairy had good food. The Spur Cafe had just started with Broasted Chicken, there was a dinner club on Hwy 57 (or 59?) that had great food. Phelps had a place in Ghent I think (Coach House?) that was good. Stu McDonald had great french fries at his drive-in and we would stop on the way back from the swimming pool for a basket (10 cents). Too bad that he named his drive-in "Stu's", and not "McDonalds".

Anyway, I'm sure all these places are gone. Have they been replaced with anything good? I plan on spending the days riding around on my bicycle so I can see the city as I did as a kid (I left Marshall after 7th grade), so lunch spots in town would be great, but I would be willing to travel some distance for dinner. The City's web site doesn't offer much in the way of dinning establishments, so any recommedations would be helpful. Thanx.
