Dandgure's



You might remember that a few weeks ago, I posted a photo of a mural painted on the side of a downtown building. I found this mural painted on a building a few blocks away from the other one.
Dandgure's is another southern, meat-and-three restuarant. . .cafeteria, actually. They advertise "classic, southern cookin'." I haven't been there, but one of the only complaints I've heard is that sometimes it's crowded. If that's the only thing about which people complain, that's pretty good! If you go, try the crispy, fried porkchop which is their specialty.
Two small notes: If you're new to NDP and didn't see a previous post about it, a meat-and-three is a restaurant that serves a meat and three side dishes.
Also, note the lack of graffiti on this building. I think my husband was right in his conclusion that graffiti artists want a blank slate for their work and don't want to compete with muralists.

Belated welcome to the DP family.

I was in Nashville about 10 years ago for a conference and stayed in a beautiful dome-shaped hotel...or maybe a hotel with a glass dome garden in the middle. Anyway, love the place.

I love restaurants that served meat-and-three food. Brings back wonderful memories of my college years in the south.

That would have been Opryland Hotel! Maybe we will see a photo or two of it one day -

Your husband is right it would be a sin to write on that mural :)
I am trying to follow a diet so porkchops are flowing in my "noodles" right now. By the excellent choice according to what I read in that comment.

Nice mural. Always showing something new from your hometown.
Friday I'll be posting a nocturnal photo of my street.

To answer your question, I lived in Louisiana from 1990-98 and went to school there. BUt we traveled to Memphis, Nashville, Dallas, and New Orleans a lot.
