We recently enjoyed a visit to Papa's Country Style Restaurant located at 3208 Amnicola Highway. Our server, Judy, told us they have been open since October in the former J.R.'s location.

We went on a recent Saturday especially to sample their breakfast menu. They do have a good selection of the standard breakfast items such as eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, biscuits, gravy and grits. They also have Omelettes, Hot Cakes, French Toast, and a variety of breakfast cereals. If you are looking for a less heavy fare and would rather have a sandwich, Papa's also offers breakfast sandwiches. Breakfast prices are very reasonable starting
at $.70 for one egg to $6.75 for two eggs with Tennessee Country Ham (and
all the accompaniments).

I ordered the two eggs with the Tennessee Country Ham and enjoyed the
biscuits and gravy as well as the grits. The grits were very good as they were not watery and "gritty" like I have been served at many places and the ham was delicious and tender and not at all dry. My only problem was my eggs - as usual. They were over-done. People just have a hard time understanding "soft scrambled."

Wayne ordered three Hot Cakes with two eggs and bacon. You really must see these Hot Cakes - they are jumbo sized! He said they were delicious and his eggs were cooked perfectly as ordered, but had he realized the size he probably would have ordered just two.

Papa's also makes good Old Fashioned Burgers (using 100% fresh ground beef, cooked to order), which are served with potato chips. Of course, there is a variety of burgers such as the Bacon Cheeseburger ($4.25), a Swiss, Mushroom and Onion Burger ($4.25) and a Chili Burger ($4.50). Burger prices range from $3.50 to $5.25.

Want a sandwich? You can find them at Papa's. They are priced from $2.50
for either a BLT or a plain Beef Hot Dog to $4.95 for your choice of
Knockwurst, Papa's Original Club, or a Turkey Club.

Country Dinners for Country Diners are served with your choice of two
vegetables and either rolls or cornbread. You will find such dinner items as Chuckwagon Steak ($4.95), Big Don's Meatloaf ($4.95) or Aunt Anne's Fried Catfish ($6.25). At Chattanooga Dine Out, believe it or not, we have had E-mails asking where they could find Liver and Onions - well, look no farther - Papa's has Braised Beef Liver grilled then smothered with onions
for $4.95. A real southern favorite served at Papa's is a bowl of beans and cornbread for $2.25 or a larger bowl for $2.75.

There are dessert and vegetables specials daily so you will need to ask your server about those.

We mustn't forget that Papa's offers several different salads priced from
$1.50 to $4.95, as well as Mama Beth's Nacho Supreme for $4.95. These sound tempting - Nacho chips surrounded by lettuce and tomatoes, then topped with chili and cheese with Jalapenos and sour cream on the side.

Papa's also does catering. Their motto is "If you can imagine it, we will create it!" They will serve groups from 20 to 500 - hors d' oeuvres to fabulous desserts and everything in between!

Visit Papa's Country Style Restaurant during the hours of 5:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Papa's is closed on Sunday. On Saturday they serve breakfast all day, but through the week it cuts off at 11:00 a.m.

And remember - if you know anyone who eats out a lot we have the perfect gift for them or even for yourself. The new Adventures coupon books are now in with even more coupons - 86 in all. These are perfect gifts for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and many other occasions. By using our
Adventures book during 2001, Wayne and I saved over $436 that would have
been spent out of our own pockets - and we didn't even use all the coupons. To make shopping easier for you, we now have credit card capability on the Chattanooga Dine Out site. We ship the same day you order (unless it's Sunday) so your books should be received within approximately three days.
