Thanksgiving Dinner at my dad’s house is always a treat. My stepmother Martha Ruth not only prepares a delicious meal, but she also decorates the dining room and table to fit the occasion. All of the traditional southern Thanksgiving favorites: turkey and dressing with giblet gravy, carrots, green beans, broccoli casserole, a small portion of [...]
Another Auburn University home game means another fun visit to The Creole and Seafood Shack on HWY 14 W in Auburn. After a much closer homecoming victory than was expected, my great friends Crissy, Gina, and Mike decided they wanted to try dinner at The Shack. The place was PACKED, so obviously Chip and the [...]
Just west of Auburn, AL on Hwy 14 is one of the best dining secrets in the East Alabama area. The Creole and Seafood Shack is a perfect option when visiting the “lovliest village on the plain.” Whether you’re in town on business or to catch the latest SEC West nailbiter, “The Shack” will not [...]

I took my wife out for date night tonight, to start the year off right. We chose Ben’s Chophouse.

Happy New Year, foodies!
One of my personal favorite spots in town. They have a great regular menu and all of their specials are amazing! Gumbo and the Mussels (the broth was so delicious!) for starters A nice light Seafood Pasta And, one of the specials, Parmesan Encrusted Trout with fresh veggies. So crispy, flaky and succulent!
This place is a cafe/bookstore, but oh so much more. Books, full size bar, great selection, window view of the airport, and the food… Oh the food. I started with a bowl of Jambalaya, but ate it so fast I forgot to get a shot. But this piece of cheesecake I had to stop and [...]
I know it sounds like I’m drinking the “Black Cow Kool-Aide” but almost everything here is fantastic! Tried the Lobster and Crab Tots and totally fell the ginger remoulade sauce! Elliott had the steak tournedos smothered in a dark brown veal sauce and I tried the meatloaf. Great rustic meal!
