On Friday we spent the day driving around, orienting ourselves with the area, and in the afternoon we headed to the nearby temple. We had a great experience there, and then headed out for some grub.
On our way there, we got completely stuck in a raging rain storm and ended up pulling off the road to wait it out.
We ended up at a barbecue place that had been recommended.
I ordered the buffet so that I could try out everything and then some. It was so fun. I ended up trying out grits with shrimp gravy (you kind of mix it together - good thing the kitchen helper guy was there to explain how to put everything together!), shrimp, squash casserole, broccoli casserole, okra, hash, bbq pork, mac'n'cheese (with pimentos - which is all the rage apparently). Just a taste of everything. My husband went for the ribs. We loved trying to figure out what the side dishes actually were - when my husband ordered okra, the waitress said 'oh yeah, something normal'...we laughed since okra isn't really normal for us.
