The Homeplace
The Homeplace is an AYCE (All You Can Eat) restaurant on the Appalachian Trail.

The menu is minimal but effective. For $13, you get your choice of two meats (among fried chicken, roast beef, country ham) or you can get all three for a dollar extra -- they also serve pork BBQ on Thursdays.

Then you get unlimited sides of mashed potatoes, pinto beans, green beans, cole slaw, corn, baked apples and warm homemade biscuits. Oh, don't forget the apple butter (on sale in the waiting lobby) -- to die for.

If that isn't enough to fill you up, dessert is vanilla ice cream with cobbler, depending on what fruit is in season.

I recommend the peach to top it all off.

In 1998, I ate 20 pieces of chicken. In 2001, I only ate 12 but in all fairness it was BBQ night and I had to eat some of that too.
