On the Road: A Stop at Mrs. Rowe's in Staunton, Va.

Weíre starting out trip South out right with a stop at Mrs. Roweís. Itís rather an institution, and one of the only places on Route 81 with some real home cooking. Mrs. Rowe, bless her soul, has passed on, but she left 40 years worth of history that her son and grandson are now carrying on.

OK... so Mrs. Roweís isnít really a destination. But if youíre on Route 81 and tired of all the Cracker Barrels, McDonalds and the like, itís a very nice alternative. Iím sorry we didnít try the pie.
