- Me, #4 + bacon - thick creamy gravy, soft buttery biscuits, and thick meaty scrumptious sausage. Eggs are like a fry scramble. Hash Browns would be better with onions & cheese.
- Her, #5 + banana - the sweet potato pancakes were excellent, fluffy and slightly sweet. Bacon cooked perfect and best scrambled eggs. The coffee was incredible not bitter and so smooth.
- We were impressed with the mini bottles of Sonny Salt seasoning on each table. So much so, we bought a jar to take home.

We next made our way to Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. Buffalo with Red Eyes at Loretta Lynn's Kitchen. Loretta has her own attraction up the road apiece. This place is notable for its outdoor statue of a red-eyed buffalo.

Nashville, Tennessee: Herd of Buffalo Statues. Spotting a herd of life-size bronze buffalo in Nashville might have been a lot more fun if they didn't stand in the median of a busy highway.

For lunch we found a fantastic wings place. We both love spicy foods. Her more so, than myself. At Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack, in Nashville, TN, we both got a 4 piece tender meal w/ bread, pickles & coleslaw. (Medium for me, Hot for her) Shelly asked the lady at the counter, how hot “hot” really is since they offer xhot & xxxhot. She replied, "I use to eat hot, but not anymore. Since you're young, you can handle it." Even after only ordering medium, I couldn't eat the 4th tender, it was just too much. I had to drive thru Sonic to get a shake to put out the fire!

|Look at how the bread soaked up the chicken!|

|Room service: BLTs on Texas toast - lots of bacon gave great crunch, slice of tomato and a leaf of lettuce. Really good, may have been the best room service food we've ever gotten.|
