I have been stopping at Shady Acres for about 14 years. There was a fire that totally gutted it a couple years ago, but it was rebuilt bigger and better, with the same country feel, good food, clean facilities and wonderful customer service that typifies living in the South. When I got out of my car, I smelled the wonderful aroma of the on site barbecue. That did it, I got the barbecued ribs with 2 sides, drink, and the cost was cheap - under $10. There is plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. THEN, there are the baked items! I cannot resist buying the cakes, fudge, pecan brittle...yum! There were coconut, Italian Cream, Buttermilk, and Chocolate Cakes. These are not store bought, they are what I call home made, and are big and oh so delicious! The Keebler Elves have nothing on these baked goods! I love the General Store where I always stock up on Fig Preserves and any jams and jellies I will need until my next tip. I love the pepper jelly, chowchow, pickles, well, there are so many wonderful things from which to select. I bought local, freshly dug sweet potatoes and cabbage. The gift shop is filled with candles, soaps, and has a good variety of items.
