Fried Green Tomatoes--"Secret's in the Sauce"

We stumbled upon a bit of nostalgia on Saturday in the form of The Whistle Stop Cafe located in Juliette, Georgia. Juliette is a blip of a town just outside the Piedmont National Wildlife Reserve. We nearly missed it driving to check out a new fishing spot. Being the filming site of the 1992 movie Fried Green Tomatoes, we felt compelled to stop and wet our whistles (pun intended) after a long day of fishing.

You'll never guess what The Whistle Stop had on the menu. Yep, and we got some. We hadn't tried fried green tomatoes before, and I can't say I'd sign up for them again. They weren't anything to email home about. The onion rings, though, were spectacular--spicy and crunchy on the outside, soft and sweet on the inside. Yum!

Never mind the fried tomatoes. Check out that onion ring!

We didn't care to have the cafe's sauce, since who knows what went into the making of it. For those of you familiar with the movie/book, you'll understand my fear. ;)

At any rate, the cafe itself is a hidden treasure with a history going back to 1927. It's a trip back in time, and a true backwoods cafe filled to brimming with southern charm. Click here for more about it.

Oh yeah. And they have awesome onion rings.

  2. I've never read the book, and I don't remember the movie much either. But friends of my parents - their twin boys were the baby (they shared the role due to child labor laws or something like that) in the movie. They are now about 21 or so, but it was cool to 'know' someone in a movie.
