A gritty location but special food – new scattered site housing good to see.
One of several locations, but the original – reopening January 2004 after a fire.

Shady Grove has delicious Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie. After a piece of this, have some of their veggie chili, or a Country Fried Chicken Salad. Add a glass of iced tea, or a margarita, and you’re all set. Yum!
