Douglas County Diner

I recently had an opportunity to have lunch at a place that’s a bit off the beaten path, and my experience was such that I thought I should share it, and thus this occasional restaurant/diner review column was born.  I hope that you enjoy it, and maybe it will give you an idea to get and try someplace new..

I had lunch at the Corn Crib in Newman on Friday.  I was really early and had the place almost to myself.  I stayed in the brightly lit, clean café and didn’t venture into the bar.  If I go there, I probably won’t write about it!

The special of the day was either a fish or shrimp basket, and I chose the shrimp.   It came out quickly and piping hot.  The portions were generous, so much so that I had to do a little work to finish it.  Tough duty, but someone’s gotta do it.   All of that deep-fried goodness, plus Coleslaw, for $7.50.  

Now for my ratings:

* Portion size:  maximum 4 out of 4 fat guys!

* Value:  maximum 4 out of 4 fat guys!  

* Friendliness of the staff:  4 out of 4 fat guys!

* Flavor: 3 and 99/100 fat guys.  The Cole slaw was good, but it was just a notch below the shrimp and fries. 

Total rating:  15.99 out of 16 Fat guys, and I highly recommend you give it a try.  They open for breakfast at 6 a.m. daily and this fat guy will definitely be back!
